With the support of St. Lawrence College in Kingston, a small group of concerned citizens, which first met in November 1970 in the old Anglican rectory in Sharbot Lake, was able to collect some information from a survey and gather a few more people for a February meeting in the Sharbot Lake High School. The results of the survey and discussion showed that there was no sense of a ‘North Frontenac’ community.
