The Community Recreation Guide is a valuable resource that you can use to find out what is going on in our community.

It contains information on recreation, sport and leisure programs/activities, volunteer opportunities and contains a list of major events. From cover to cover you will find all the information you need to get involved in your community.

Sometimes programs and activities are created after the Rec Guide is printed. So, to stay in the loop be sure to check out the community calendar by visiting our website www.wilmot.ca. The community calendar has information on local events and/or new programs that are being offered by our local organizations and service clubs which help our community flourish. For now, LIVE WELL, PLAY WELL AND BE SAFE! Regards, Mayor Les Armstrong Disclaimer: Although every effort is taken to ensure accuracy in this book, errors will happen.
