  1. NEW - Beach Water Quality at Palmer Park in Port Perry - Water Samples Tests Show Presence of Blue Green Algae in Lake Scugog - Kinsmen Beach Area The Township of Scugog has been advised by the Durham Region Health Department and by the Ontario Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change (MOECC) of the presence of a bloom of blue-green algae in water samples taken from the Kinsmen Beach area of Lake Scugog. Laboratory test results were received from the Ontario MOECC on July 25. As a precaution, a public advisory has been issued for the areas of Kinsmen Beach and to the south of the beach, while the Ministry continues testing for the toxin levels in the algae bloom. The Region of Durham has advised that people can protect themselves and their pets from blue-green algae blooms by not swimming or playing in areas where water is discoloured or where foam, scum or mats of algae on the water’s surface are present. Children or pets should not play in or drink water in areas where a beach advisory posted. Consuming fish from areas where mats of algae are present or where a swimming advisory is posted is also not advisable. “The Township of Scugog is working with Durham Region Health Department to ensure that the public is aware of the concerns surrounding the presence of blue-green algae in the Kinsmen Beach area,” said Mayor Tom Rowett. “We’ll continue to monitor the situation and provide more information as results from testing of more water samples become available.” For more information about blue-green algae or the Health Department’s Beach Monitoring program, please visit durham.ca/beaches, or call the Environmental Help Line at 905-723-3818 or 1-888-777-9613.(CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE ARTICLE ONLINE)

  6. Hospital Renovation - The Port Perry Hospital Auxiliary has made a pledge to donate $350,000 to the 'Your hospital - Your Future' Campaign. We have completed this pledge in just 2 years. The money we receive from the King's Bay bottle drive go towards this pledge. Our donation is helping with the renovation of the Port Perry Hospital, which will improve the patient and staff experience. The renovation includes making the existing washrooms accessible with wider doors to allow for someone using a walker or wheelchair to pass through.

    It will also:

    • Increase the number of private rooms available
    • Provide for 4 rooms with finishes appropriate for palliative care patients
    • Update the medical gas system to meet current standards
    • Provide a larger quiet room for families
    • Add sprinklers to the inpatient unit and lobby

    Many thanks to the residents of Kings Bay for donating and the drivers for collecting and returning them to the beer store and for donating the raised money to the Auxiliary. Also thank you for adding these pictures and info to our website. It is a great idea to inform our neighbourhood.
