Highlights from the Week

City of Kingston Mayor’s BBQ
Last Friday, the City of Kingston held their annual kick-off Mayor’s BBQ with a twist.  With restrictions, the annual BBQ at Lake Ontario Park wasn’t possible, so the city brought the BBQ to staff with food trucks at various locations! Thanks so much for the #locallove and support, especially to all the dedicated volunteers that organized and to everyone that took part. Thanks to Otter Creek Farms Food Truck, Smokin’ Carnivore and Burn’s Grill as well.
