All gone: demolition completed on Quyon Beach Barn



Kate Aley

Today, the 19th of October, the remaining concrete and twisted rubbish was scooped off the site of the Beach Barn.

The Beach Barn is dead. Long live the Quyon Community Centre.

Take step back in time as you “Savour the Pontiac”


2013 marks the 400th anniversary of Samuel de Champlain’s passage up the Ottawa River in search of navigable waterways and this is being commemorated at the 6th edition of the local producers fair, Savour the Pontiac.
