The ice is down and the stones are sliding. The Liverpool Curling Club is back up and operational, after more than a year of being out of commission.

Dave Andrews thanks the members of the Liverpool Curling Club for their hard work and dedication getting the club back up and operational.
Gerald Keddy, Member of Parliament for South Shore-St. Margaret’s, announced funding of $37,750 for the club, which pays for the final piece of funding needed for the chiller unit.
In 2011, it was discovered the chiller unit in the club was in bad shape, and could not be repaired. A new unit was estimated to cost over $60,000. Through a lot of hard work put in by the volunteers and through government grants they were able to pay for it all, says club president Dave Andrews.
"It makes me proud to live in a small community," he said.
Two other funding announcements were set to take place at 11 a.m. at the Queens County Museum, and 1:30 p.m. at the Queens County Fair Grounds
