Ayer’s Cliff will get new look

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS - Vic­to­ria Vanier Ayer's Cliff

The project to con­struct the ob­ser­va­tion tower and board­walk on the shore of Lake Mas­saw­ippi, in Ayer’s Cliff, was ap­proved last month by the town’s coun­cil. “The work is ex­pected to be­gin on July 14th and we hope to get it done be­fore the Ayer’s Cliff Fair. That’s our goal,” said Ayer’s Cliff mayor Alex van Zuiden.

Yes­ter­day, mem­bers of the com­mit­tee in charge of the town’s new med­i­cal clinic were at the Town Hall to get the per­mit to be­gin the ren­o­va­tions to the lo­cale on Main Street where it will be lo­cated. “The project clinic is go­ing gang­busters,” he com­mented hap­pily.

A Her­itage com­mit­tee was re­cently formed to have both the Ayer’s Cliff Fair­grounds and the ac­tiv­ity of the fair it­self rec­og­nized for their her­itage value. If suc­cess­ful, fund­ing for the 169 yearold agri­cul­tural and hor­ti­cul­tural ex­hi­bi­tion could in­crease.

The mayor was very pleased that the Ayer’s Cliff Rodeo, a new event that took place in June, was a good suc­cess. The event was or­ga­nized by a non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tion which was formed by the own­ers of the Au­berge Ayer’s Cliff to at­tract tourists to the re­gion, and it seems to have worked. “They re­ally went out on a limb to put this on and we had tor­ren­tial rains that weekend. It was slow on Fri­day but it was full out Satur­day and Sun­day. I heard only mar­velous things about the rodeo and I’m so thank­ful that they broke even and now they’ve com­mit­ted to an­other four years,” said Mr. van Zuiden.
