Puslinch Community Newsletter – June 2021


Aberfoyle Farmers’ Market

Back in action for the 2021 season, the Aberfoyle Farmers’ Market is your local market next door with farm-fresh foods, locally grown produce, and handmade goods. Grow with us, every Saturday 8am – 1pm (rain or shine) until the end of October. Kickstart your weekend with a hot cup of coffee and savoury sweets, or just stop by to beat the heat with locally made beverages and fruity ice pops. Our local vendors look forward to meeting you with COVID protocols in effect to keep everyone safe. Follow us on Facebook @aberfoylefarmersmarket and Instagram @aberfoylefarmers for regular updates.

Puslinch Minor Soccer Club

START DATE. Under the Government of Ontario’s new three step Roadmap to Reopening, organized team sport training is scheduled to begin in Step 1 of the framework. The current estimated start date for Ontario Soccer to begin “Phase 1” of Return to Play is June 14, 2021. Puslinch Minor SC is hopeful our teams will begin practicing at this time, followed by league games starting the first week of July. Once confirmed, coaches will be in contact.

REGISTRATION is still open but many teams are full, or almost there. If you are interested in signing your son/daughter up, don’t delay! Go to puslinchsoccer.com.
Please note we are still looking for Timbits coaches U4/5, U6 and U8 – please contact Katie at [email protected] to volunteer. No experience necessary, we offer plenty of support. For those who previously registered under ‘Register Now, Pay Later’ option, invoices will go out the first week of June.
