There is now a gym in the Fire Hall, many members of the community have a key. For insurance purposes the Fire Hall must remain locked. So for the time being, contact a resident with a key or a member of the fire department to have them unlock the door, for gym access. Suggestions/volunteers to work out the logistical issues are welcomed! Use of the facility is by donation, and we are suggesting $2.00 per use or $20 per month. Enjoy!
In January 2011 a group of local residents came together to form the Blue Mountain Community Development Association (BMCDA). The first project for the group to tackle was gathering local history. A Community Kiosk was erected at the intersection of the Sherbrooke Road and the Tower Road to display this information. Stop by and check it out!
RINK PROJECT - Submitted by Theresa MacDonald
I wanted to send a thank you to the community of Blue Mountain for their dedication to the families that live here and the surrounding areas. Although we haven't had much time on the outdoor rink, we really enjoyed skating and spending time with our families out there. I wanted to send out a HUGE thank you to the Volunteer Fire Department who flooded the rink every cold night and even smoothed it off so the ice would be nice and flat for the kids to skate on.
The area was first settled around 1815 and became the Community of Blue Mountain in 1818. Named in Gaelic by one of the First Settlers - William Ross, The Elder.
