Storm rips steeple off of New Hamburg band gazebo

The brief storm that blew across southwestern Ontario Saturday night resulted in only a few localized rain showers in our area, but some high winds in New Hamburg managed to tear the steeple off the bandshell in Kirkpatrick Park.

Roy Eby sent us these photos of the steeple as it appeared Sunday morning in the Nith River, several metres away from the bandshell.

Police confirmed the damage was storm related and Wilmot Township facilities and recreation services staff have been contacted to repair the steeple.
