The location is Dain City looking north towards Bridges 18 and 17 as a canaller belonging to Colonial Steamship Lines passes by.

The bridges are painted black so this would date the photo before the coming of the St. Lawrence Seaway in 1959.

A few months ago we looked at families and how they are the basis for a productive, caring and just society. The qualities of a dynamic family, we discovered, were truth, justice, communication, loyalty, and trust. In an era where technology is everywhere, it can be difficult for youth to unplug and focus on meaningful relationships. Rotary tries to go beyond this technology to interest young people in group interactions focused on helping the community instead of isolating themselves.  

Soiree store - Seaway Mall Welland - An employee was accidently overpaid when two $50 bills were stuck together.  She found it when balancing and did everything she could within her power to contact customer who lives in Toronto.  This dedicated employee tracked down the customer's sister in Welland and returned the $50 bill.  Incredible honesty on the part of the employee.  She deserves recognition!
