In June each year, Ontario celebrates seniors and recognizes the contributions they make to our communities. June 2015 will mark the 31st annual Seniors’ Month. This year’s theme is “Vibrant Seniors, Vibrant Communities.”
'Rock Hard Ride Hard' is Kickstart Youthfest event organized by the Welland Mayor's Youth Advisory Council. This year the event raised $505.05 towards the redevelopment of a new skateboard park in Welland.
Thank you to Welland resident, Paul Duncan for sharing his photos and this audio of the comments that he received from Pam Swick Janjac, who was participating at the event as a representative of Safe Communities Welland (SCW).
The Welland Downtown BIA (WDBIA) and North Welland BIA (NWBIA) would like to invite you to submit a name for the new 6 Series Concert that WDBIA and NWBIA are sponsoring this summer 2015 on the Merritt Park Amphitheatre.
Since we first launched our myWelland community platform in the Spring of 2014 the Welland Downtown BIA has been an incredible partner of our myWelland.com community platform. The year ahead promises to be an exciting year as the BIA is spearheading a comprehensive new series of initiatives to support the revitilization of the Downtown core. A big part of the plan is the establishment of a Business Development staff position to coordinate the implementation of the strategy. This job is now in the capable hands of social media saavy, Stephanie Hicks. Stephanie has a background in social media, event planning, sales and management, and will be using the breadth of her skills in the months to come.
