Named after instrumental Chamber founder Ruby Quaker, the awards are a commemoration of excellence in local business and community involvement. 

At first glance it’s just a fine summer day in August 1969, and the Park Theatre marquee on East Main Street has a message referring to a film it was showing. I’ve included two shots, the top one for quality sake and the other one, poorer technical quality (it was the photo we sent out to Canadian Press that day) but the better image. Note the guy in the middle distance doing a real look-around. He’s not posed, but the foreground guy, and the girl, both found downtown, were directed by me and several shots were taken. I could write words about how things could get sensual in the balcony of the Park and about the fashions of the day …… 1969 was certainly around the high-water mark of mini-skirt hemlines and note the guys were more flamboyant too. I don’t recall anyone’s name or the name of the film.

I spoke with a woman earlier in July about a campaign that she's hoping to bring to Niagara. You know that each year we do the Random Acts of Kindness Day. Well, check out the short video below about another way to share something very simple with people you don't (or do) know.

At various times, many people may feel frustrated by the performance of their investments. For example, they expect growth, and they don’t get it — or they think the value of their investment won’t fluctuate much, but it does. However, some of this frustration might be alleviated if investors were more familiar with the nature of their investment vehicles. Specifically, it’s important to keep in mind the difference between long-term and short-term investments.
