The first few months of a year can be quite busy when it comes to your finances. There may be contributions to make to your Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) and Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA). And of course, there’s your personal income tax return to prepare, which thankfully will soon be wrapped up for most of us. 

Back in the 1920s, 1930s and even 1940s, the undercut was a popular style among men. The hair on top is parted to either side or at the centre and the back and sides are trimmed very short. The style became popular again in the 1990s and around 2010. Some undercut styles included bangs and others slicked the bangs back.

To recognize Canada's 150th Anniversary, CFUW Welland and District Unit are sponsoring  cartoonist and illustrator, Matthew Forsythe who will present at all three libraries during March Break.

When it comes to keeping carpets clean, the muddy months of spring can certainly put a homeowner’s care and maintenance skills to the test. In a household with pets and children, stains may be a year-round battle. In anticipation of the messy months ahead, Star Tile Carpet One compiled cleaning tips and techniques for some of carpet’s toughest stains. In addition to the advice provided here, the flooring retailer also offers a free Stain First Aid app and an exclusive Video Series to help their customers tackle over 50 of the most common household stains.

The Whisky Appreciation Society of Pelham (WASP) inaugural tasting & gourmet dinner held Saturday January 28th was a resounding success.  More than thirty founding members attended the first of the Society's three annual whisky tasting events.  Each event is themed around pairing different spirits with dinner courses.  Dinner was prepared by the culinary staff of The Pelham Street Grille, the Society's host restaurant.  A wondrous pear, asparagus and apple cider soup led to scallop on chili linguini, followed by a perfect filet mignon, double stuffed potato and green beans, only to be eclipsed by the chocolate bombe dessert.  The dessert was a uniquely crafted specialty of Indulgence Bakery in Fonthill.  And the evening's stars were four aged single malts, each well suited to the courses enjoyed. Yum.
 

You’ve got one investment account here, your RRSP and TFSA there, and some more assets over at that other place. You’re “diversifying,” right? That tactic could, however, be raising your risk, inviting costly fees and preventing you from creating a sound retirement strategy.

I was a little surprised during our Committee of the Whole meeting last week because the East Fenwick Secondary Plan area is bigger than originally thought. Last Fall, Town Council identified the preparation of a Secondary Plan for East Fenwick as a priority for 2017. While we set aside funds over the last couple of years to re-start this detailed planning exercise, Staff hadn’t been able to get it started until now.
