Elizabeth Dowdeswell is going to spend a few hours in our community this week.
Jill Sturdy, the Corporate Media Relations Officer for the Municipality of North Grenville, announced Thursday morning that Ontario’s Lieutenant Governor will be visiting Friday.
According to Sturdy, Dowdeswell’s visit will start by meeting Mayor Nancy Peckford. After that, the pair will attend a flag raising ceremony outside the Municipal Centre to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee.
An hour-long “community roundtable” discussion will follow, where Peckford, Dowdeswell, members of council, and other community figures will discuss “the topic of community cohesion post-pandemic,” according to Sturdy.
Following that, the Lieutenant Governor will end her visit by attending the Kemptville Live Music Festival’s Friday night show.
Her visit begins at 1:30 PM. MyKemptvilleNow.com will be covering the flag raising ceremony, which starts at 2:00 in the afternoon.
