Many social opportunities help residents get to know each other and to continue to foster the “small town” feel that has made Renfrew a cozy and comfortable community for over 60 years. As well, there are ongoing opportunities for residents to become involved in the decision-making processes that shape our community and to voice concerns and bring forth new ideas.
