Message from the Mayor

On behalf of the Council and staff of the

Township of Selwyn, it is my pleasure to present

the 2016 Selwyn Guide.

In the past, the guide was focused more on

Recreation Services. This year, we have included

municipal and community information that you

and your family may find helpful.

As you explore the guide, you will note the many

wonderful services and facilities our Township

has to offer for staying active and involved. The

Township hosts numerous attractions, festivals,

and special events. We also have many local

cultural and historical attractions and a variety

of charming and scenic trails.

Perhaps the best part about Selwyn is its

people. Our community is dedicated to

volunteerism, community beautification and

engagement. I encourage

you to become involved in ~

the community and .&)-1 .

experience all it v f'

has to offer.
