It is that time again! Every year for the last 26 years the Welland community has come together to stock the shelves of the food banks in our city. This year is no exception. The Food Drive this year will be on Saturday, November 3rd.
The campaigning is going as planned. Sometimes we do not appreciate how nice our surroundings are until we need to walk the area. Ward 2 may be a nice ward to drive through, but it is a wonderful area to observe when walking through it. There is a saying “these shoes are made for walking”. Once you start to walk you recognize the value of good shoes!
Over the past 3 years of manning the helm at the Black Sheep Lounge I have realized that making our business more eco-friendly doesn’t need to be an expensive process.

Meals on Wheels Association (MOWAN) announced today that October is Community Support Month. Community Support month is celebrated across Ontario and is an opportunity to acknowledge and raise awareness of the value of supports available in our region. October 1 October 7, 2018 is Meals on Wheels week. The delivery of almost 3000 hot and frozen meals each week, carried out by caring volunteers, also includes a safety check on the wellbeing of the client. This valuable program helps clients live independently in their own homes and communities for as long as possible. As Ontario’s population ages, community support services will become even more important.
Taxes. Never a popular topic. We must always respect the tax payer. I firmly believe that as a council, the members must watch the dollar and cents. We need to constantly review city spending. Each dollar must have the maximum benefit to the citizens of Welland.
Welland knows the value of transportation. Our community was founded at the point where travel by road, water and rail came together. Our parents and grandparents together leveraged those local advantages in infrastructure to build the best place to live, work and raise a family in Ontario.
Diets DON’T work – even if you start by losing weight, studies have shown you are very likely to gain it back, and then some… NO MATTER THE DIET. WildFit is NOT a diet. It is a nutritionally based program, based in anthropological evidence, which will show you the proper way to eat.
