KAWARTHA LAKES: The City of Kawartha Lakes marked February as Black History Month at their recent meeting on Tuesday, January 30th.

“Kawartha Lakes joins communities across Canada in celebrating the heritage of Black Canadians who have shaped our country,” Mayor Elmslie said.
He also explained how people can get involved in recognizing this awareness month.
“Please take a moment to check out the Kawartha Lakes Public Library recommended books to celebrate Black History Month.”
