Welcome to our newest Community Partner - Anna Topolinsky of Images Staged with Flair.

Stage your home! Sell your home! is our tag line. At Images Staged with Flair we have proven that staging works! Take a look at our portfolio and view the homes that have sold faster and many times for more money! This is our gallery of homes that we have staged for our very happy clients. Many of these homes were on the market listed for months without any offers and once staged they received offers and sold. Some homes were vacant homes where we created a design plan and staged fully furnished rooms, and some rooms were owner occupied homes, we staged with the clients furnishings, we only added art work, lighting and accessories.

I had the pleasure of working closely with Marilyn in the development of "Beyond the Bed: A Quilt Retrospective" which is a cataloge booklet of her excellent Art Quilts.

She was always kind, gracious and considerate. Have a look at some images of her amazing creations.

For the past 13 years we have brought to Niagara ideas, inspiration and insights from speakers on a variety of topics. This year is no exception.

At Miller Restoration we understand how destructive fire can be to a home or business. Fire and Smoke Damage can be physically and emotionally devastating. Fire damage can cause extensive damage to a home or building and may require a great deal of time to clean and repair. On top of the flames, heat and smoke will contribute to invading anything that is porous. Fire will produce poisonous gasses that can make an individual either drowsy or disoriented. The initial fire can be followed by more damage due to the water and chemicals used to put out the fire.


Council ceremonially acknowledged the donation of a decommissioned pumper fire truck to the Rotary Club of Welland, who is facilitating the delivery of the truck to the First Nations Reserve community of Bearskin Lake. Bearskin Lake First Nation is a community of 475 people located 730 kilometers from Sioux Lookout where land access only occurs during the winter months via winter ice roads and daily flights. The community is in need of fire protection equipment and only has water distribution for 8 hydrants within the main settlement and uses the local lake for fire protection. The donated fire truck will be housed at the community's fire station, along with some bunker gear and other firefighting equipment passed on by Pelham Fire Services. Fire Safety Officer and First Nations Fire Commissioner Larry Laviolette sincerely thanked Council and Pelham for their generosity and hospitality. As a token of appreciation, Wayne Brown, Deputy Chief Bearskin Lake First Nation, presented Mayor Dave Augustyn and Fire Chief Bob Lymburner with handmade traditional, fur-lined slippers.

Last Friday, Town Staff installed a temporary traffic calming measure on Haist Street North (north of Regional Road 20). Shortly after, I drove through and posted a photo on my Facebook pages and other social media. The reactions were immediate and polarized.

Who is going to host Christmas this year? What about uncle Charles and aunt Michelle’s wedding anniversary, it’s their 50th, we have to do something for that milestone. Sound familiar?  With family style catering from the Blue Star (or bring in your own favorites), our Rose Room is the best space for such an event, big enough for the family, yet small enough to feel intimate. Stop in, we’d love to show you around.

It's not too late to sign up for Pelham House League Basketball.

Just like this newsletter, print and online materials, the Museum itself has received many improvements since our last issue.
