Kettle Point-Lambton Shores…working together open house

 The Chippewas of Kettle and Stony Point and the Municipality of Lambton Shores are hosting a Joint Open House for residents and visitors of our communities to attend. The “Looking Ahead: Working Together” Open House will focus on joint initiatives that both communities have identified as areas of opportunity and growth. Exhibits on topics related to tourism, environment, economic development, health, community planning and current events will be available for those attending to view with representatives to answer any questions.
In recognition that both the Chippewas of Kettle and Stony Point First Nation and the Municipality of Lambton Shores share areas of opportunity, Chief Thomas Bressette commented, “When we have the opportunity to work together with our neighbours, both our communities have the ability to strengthen our positions. We chose to share our Traditional Territory through our treaties; and we will continue to strengthen and build relationships with the Municipality.”

“This open house is an exciting opportunity to showcase the large number of things that both Lambton Shores and the Chippewas of Kettle and Stony Point First Nation have in common. Both Councils have an interest in building and strengthening our relationship”, says Lambton Shores Mayor, Bill Weber. “It will be the first of many opportunities for our communities to work and grow together”.

The “Looking Ahead: Working Together” Open House will take place on Saturday, April 2, 2016 from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. at the Hillside School Gymnasium located at 6265 Indian Lane, Kettle Point, Ontario.

The Chippewas of Kettle and Stony Point First Nation is located along the shores of Lake Huron, 35 km northeast of Sarnia, Ontario. It has two land bases, one of which was the focus of a half century long land dispute that has had repercussions across the country.

The Municipality of Lambton Shores is home to more than 11,000 full-time residents and thousands of visitors who return each year to call Lambton Shores their “home away from home”. Amalgamated in 2001, we are comprised of the communities of Arkona, Bosanquet, Forest, Grand Bend and Thedford. Nestled along the shores of Lake Huron, Lambton Shores is home to Grand Bend’s Blue Flag certified beach, breathtaking sunsets, beautiful parks, conservation areas, golf courses and recreation centres.
