On behalf of Council, staff and the entire community, Township of Southwold would like to thank STAN’S TOTAL TIRE SALES & SERVICE INC. for their generous donation of $10,000 towards improvements at the Fingal Ball Park.

The Township of Southwold has a rich agricultural heritage dating back several hundred years.
Some of our current farmers still own the first tractor their grandparents purchased. Some still run, some are all fixed up and some are just peacefully resting. Early this year Jack Vanderkooy, one of our residents told us about a recent experience he had in Holland where he took part in a vintage tractor road run. His enthusiasm was contagious and our Economic Development Committee and Council agreed to support a similar event right here in Southwold.
