About this event

NJC Class of ’75 Reunion at Westport, Ontario image

The town of Westport, situated on Big Rideau Lake, is small and quaint with lots of character, a pretty waterfront and a number of great small shops. Westport is about a 1 ½ hour drive from the Ottawa Airport, 4O minutes north of Kingston, or about a 3 ½ hour drive from Toronto. https://www.villageofwestport.ca/discover-westport, http://www.whatsonwestport.ca/

There is lots to do in and around Westport. There is a lovely 9 hole golf course, Evergreen, which is in excellent shape and very picturesque. http://www.evergreengolfcourse.com/

There are some nice hiking trails in the area: https://www.alltrails.com/canada/ontario/westport

The Scheuermann Vineyard and Winery is a short 4 minute drive, or a 21 minute walk from the Cove Inn. We have organized a wine tasting and lunch there on Saturday from 11 am to 1:30 pm. It will be outdoors with a tent that can accommodate 40 people. Lunch is approx $30 per person, beverages extra. Wine tasting is up to $7 per person, depending on number of wines tasted. https://www.scheuermannwinery.com/ (on Instagram: schvinewine)

The Cove Inn has been chosen for our class reunion, but there are several attractive B&B’s very close by that can accommodate us as well. All are within a very easy walk of the Cove Inn.

The Inn has a lovely patio and deck area with a waterfront view and attractive grounds. One of the bonus features of this place is the bar/lounge with live entertainment. If the weather is good, the band may play outside by the water.

In addition to their restaurant, they have a dining hall that seats up to 100 people where we will have our Saturday dinner. This will incude a starter salad, three choices for main (including meat, vegetarian and vegan options) and dessert. The cost will be approx. $80 + HST + Gratuity per person to cover dinner and the band – we have requested Rock ‘n Roll for dancing!
