To accommodate province-mandated social distancing orders, the Central Tavern hosted a Parking Lot BBQ today from 11am to 2pm where patrons could take their orders to go. Customers were spaced out in their respective lineups as restaurant co-owners Kelly Leclair-Waddick and Craig Watters took orders and attended the grill. Customers were also entertained by the tongue-in-cheek chalk drawings created to guide them through the appropriate line-ups for orders and pick-up. All in all, it seemed to be a popular and successful event and we hope to see more in the future!

May 27th, 2020 – MISSING


$500 REWARD – for anyone who knows the whereabouts of or can provide information leading to the return of the S.S. #4 Dover School Bell that was in front of École secondaire de Pain Court.

Stolen sometime between March 13th and April 22nd at the beginning of the lockdown. Camera footage has since been overwritten prior to discovering its disappearance. The camera had been turned toward the sky, which implies that this was a planned theft.

Integral to our community’s history, the S.S. #4 Dover School Bell was donated to ESPC by the Delrue family and placed near the front doors in the garden.

On May 6th, Pain Court officially received designation of a second community park in the eastern subdivision of the village.

Named Parc Royale, the property lays between Rue Ste. Bernadette and Rue St. Joseph and features a small pathway, permanent soccer posts, and multiple newly planted trees.

As many of the surrounding houses are young families, this new park will be well-loved for years to come!
