Are you falling behind on your Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) or other financial goals?  The solution to the problem may be simpler than you think. It's possible to increase savings and investments just by ensuring that you set aside money before it's used for other purposes. This technique, often called "paying yourself first," is a simple and painless way to boost savings. 

Styling your hair should be simple, and it starts with having the

right product. First, ask yourself what it is you want to achieve:

How much hold do you need? How much shine do you like? How

long is your hair? Ask Tracy Strycker at Salon Allegra which hair

product helps you land on the perfect style for your needs.

Always remember to apply product to the roots of your hair.

Hundreds of Pelham residents took time to gather with local Veterans, members of the Royal Canadian Legion and the Ladies Auxiliary, the 613 Army Cadets, the Pelham Fire Service, and others at the Veteran’s Park at the Fonthill Legion to commemorate and remember the sacrifices of Pelham’s Veterans.

Remembrance Day Service was held in the Veterans’ Park at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 613 on Sunday, November 11th at 10:45AM.

This year marks the 100th Anniversary of the end of WW 1 and also the 10th Anniversary of the opening of the Veterans’ Park. Legion members, Veterans, Dignitaries and Cadets were piped in by Bagpiper Ted Johnstone. Comrade Toni McKelvie, Legion president began the Service with a warm welcome and address. Rev. John Cathcart, Legion Chaplin gave the blessing and prayers and trumpeter Harmon Narbonne lead the observance of silence.
