We could not present these opportunities for residents without the support of so many different groups and individuals in Petrolia. We thank our sponsors and donors for their generosity.” Said Dave Menzies, Director of Parks, Recreation, and Facilities.
Residents are asked to take photos of their family having fun together on Family Day weekend and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org for inclusion in the online Family Day Fun Album.
