On June 3, Niagara College staff, students and the community celebrated the grand opening of its Niagara-on-the-Lake Campus Aboriginal Student Resource Centre. The event marked the opening of the first resource centre for Indigenous students at the College’s NOTL Campus, following in the footsteps of a centre that has been open at the Welland Campus since 1992.

Welland Horticultural Society has announced details for its 96th anniversary show, to be held Wednesday evening, June 17, at Wesley United Church, First Avenue, Welland.

Doctors have an oath.  So do the Boy Scouts.  I had one when I was in 4-H.  Even Dutch bankers must swear to uphold a 158-word honor code. We were pleased to find a terrific oath for architects and urbanists, one that should be made by every designer, builder, and even trades people who have a hand in making the places in which we live.  We have just posted it to the web page.

Cheer on your nation this summer in Welland, Canada as the best dragon boat paddlers from around the globe compete on the world stage.  Dragon Boat Niagara 2015 tickets are NOW available for purchase.

One of my fav destinations Saturday morning is the Welland market. The farmers and venders are very friendly and always take the time to say hello and answer any questions.

While purchasing my favorite olive oil soap I asked Bev of Hawkwood farm if she knew if there was any rhubarb for sale at the market ? She recommended a few farmers and kindly let me store my bags with her for a few minutes as I continued my search. I just love the Welland Market. Next time I’m bringing one of those large rolling bags with a handle. lol

The Rouge Valley Lifesaving Club hosted its Waterfront Training Camp this past Saturday & Sunday, May 23 – 24, at the PenFinancial Credit Union Flatwater Community Centre, inviting individuals to participate in drowning prevention workshops.
