Two thumbs up for Weir Park

Stanstead Journal - - CLASSIFIEDS - Vic­to­ria Vanier

It’sa nice ex­pe­ri­ence to re­turn to old stomp­ing grounds af­ter many decades, es­pe­cially when you find them to be much im­proved. That was the case for Guy Dav­i­gnon, a re­tiree liv­ing in Ayer’s Cliff who grew up in Rock Is­land but moved away to Mon­treal for many years. In a let­ter to the ed­i­tor, Mr. Dav­i­gnon de­scribed how pleas­antly sur­prised he had been when he and a few friends went to Weir Park for a pic­nic last Fri­day.

“When I was last there about thirty-nine years ago, it was mostly tents set up and it was not main­tained but in just a nat­u­ral state. But when we re­turned I was as­ton­ished to see how clean the park was and how well-looked af­ter. The peo­ple work­ing there in the can­teen, which I ad­mit is show­ing its years, and the main­te­nance staff were very friendly and wel­com­ing. The lawns are clean and well-main­tained, there’s a nice new lean-to and gran­ite plaques. We were re­ally im­pressed so I thought I’d ‘lift my hat’,” com­mented Mr. Dav­i­gnon in an in­ter­view with the Stanstead Jour­nal. “Bravo,” he added.
