The word funeral is often misunderstood. The word can be defined and interpreted differently based on what people have been told or what they’ve experienced in their life. While some might be more comfortable with the concept, it might set off alarm bells for others. But what I’ve observed is that for many, it’s clear there is some misunderstanding about what a funeral is and that’s where I come in as a funeral director.

New backpacks and school supplies are being collected now for our 17th annual backpack distribution to kids in need in our community. They can be dropped off at the Mission Centre at 22 Fifth Street, Redeemed Goods at 298 Crowland Avenue or the Downtown Welland BIA office at 195 East Main Street. We are collecting until July 26. 

The City of Welland has received reports of coyote sightings in the north end of the city. Although coyotes do not typically approach humans, they will approach family pets and small animals if given the opportunity. It is advised to keep dogs leashed while out walking and ensure cats remain indoors from dusk to dawn when coyotes are most active. As a safety precaution, be aware of all surroundings when out walking.
