With the holiday season behind us, we now look towards the new year and all it has to offer in Richmond County. There is a lot to do around the area. There will be a Variety Concert at the Lakeside Community Centre in Hall starting at 2pm. On January 21st. There will be a Pub & Trivia Night held at the Tara Lynne Community Centre in River Bourgeois starting at 8pm. With the cooler weather arriving, it is a perfect time to get out and do a little hiking around the area; take advantage of the St. Peter's Old Railroad Bed Trail running along the bay or enjoy a beautiful walk on the trails in Battery Provincial Park. It is also wonderful experience to take in the beauty of the scenery as you walk along the shorelines at the Grand Greve, Point Michaud or Pondville Beaches.
