GUEST POST by Bob Chambers and Joe Barkovich

Found the print. Ran in the paper August 13, 1969. Taken in the lounge of the Skylon, you can see the view of fields (yes, farmland then) outside. Tommy has pen in hand. He’s typically dark-suited and bow-tied. I wish I knew what Benny was saying ….. gee, I guess I could make up almost anything now, nearly 50 years later.

PenFinancial Credit Union has launched their first ever financial advice blog and it strives to be anything but the status quo. Filled with real member stories, laughs and financial insights, the Truly Local Advice authors want to connect with readers on a much deeper level, rather than simply providing cookie-cutter financial advice.

Thinking about making your final arrangements in advance? Here are the top five reasons to pre-plan now.

Having a ‘good hair day’ is about to get a whole new meaning at Niagara College.​ A number of students, staff and faculty members are volunteering to get their hair cut as part of a college-wide initiative to provide wigs for children with cancer. The hair donation event will take place at the Niagara-on-the-Lake Campus on Thursday, March 17 and at the Welland Campus on Friday, March 18, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

We are pleased to be participating in the Community Fund for Canada's 150th, a small grants program run by community foundations to support local initiatives related to Canada's sesquicentennial.

If you have ever thought about purchasing a travel trailer, this year is your year to do it. Fuel prices are dropping. The price of the American dollar gives us a tremendous opportunity to see more of our amazing country.  

It’s March Madness at Seaway Trailer Sales! All this Month you can take advantage of great prices and even better financial rates (OAC). Rates as low as 3.9% (OAC) for a limited time!

It's not a topic of conversation that comes up all that often, or all too easily but it's critical you know who you can turn to for such an important decision. You only get to choose your final resting place once and you don't want to feel pressure or regret for the choices you make. 

Since March is Rotary’s Literacy month, let’s take a look at the many ways Rotary has been involved in this field. Over the past ten years, the Welland Rotary Club has been very active, providing dictionaries, thesauruses, and novels to local schools. We have also assisted the Port Colborne Public Library by donating books to their ongoing sales, which provide them with necessary equipment. However, we are most proud of the Read to Feed program that is delivered by the Welland Neighbourhood Project. Under the direction of Heifer International, this program currently operates at six sites in Welland.
