If you're looking to promote cultural participation in the community and have an activity that will showcase any form of cultural or artistic expression, you've come to the right place!

Fleetwood Mac Mania is a stunning visual and musical tribute to Fleetwood Mac. Each veteran player in this 5 piece tribute band brings their spirit to re-create, with incredible accuracy, the look and feel of Fleetwood Mac. With the solo hits of Stevie Nicks as part of the show, the harmonies, instrumentation and on-stage chemistry has surprised and captivated audiences from coast-to-coast.

This is a subject that is personal to me. My father served in the U.S. Marine Corp. many years, bravely serving in both the Korean War and Vietnam and he is thankfully still with us today. Over the years, I have discussed his wishes for where he would prefer his military medals, orders and decorations to go when he passes on. Like many veterans, my father is very active with his local American Legion. The camaraderie with his fellow veterans brings him great satisfaction. Most of his collection will be donated to his Legion, the rest I will respectfully keep.

There has been a lot of community and media interest recently about the property at 202 Highway 20 West (known as the Timmsdale House), the property at 662 Foss Road, and the Town’s former Municipal Heritage Advisory Committee (MHAC). The facts are as follows...

As September quickly approaches and we’re getting our kids ready to go back to school, it’s important to recognize some children might be returning to the classroom after experiencing a death in the family.  “The freedom of summer schedules may have provided a lot of time with family for support after a death.  It can be panic-inducing when that has to change.  You may be worrying whether your children will struggle.

Niagara-based charities in need of renovation now have until the end of August to apply to become the recipient of Niagara College’s next Many Hands Project.
The application deadline has been extended to August 31 for the 2016-2017 Many Hands Project – an annual renovation project that enhances, improves and renovates the facilities of a local charitable organization. All aspects of the project are planned, managed and completed by students from NC’s Event Management (post-graduate) and construction studies programs.

In July, Council received a request to designate the property at 202 Highway 20 (known as the Timmsdale House) as a heritage site. Staff investigated and confirmed that neither the previous Municipal Heritage Committee nor the Pelham Historical Society deemed the property suitable or worthy of the designation. Furthermore, the property is not referenced in Pelham’s Heritage Master Plan. Councillors and staff toured the property to review the deteriorating conditions that were further detailed in an engineering report by Mark Shoalts of Shoalts Engineering, a former Pelham Heritage Committee Chair and Ontario Heritage member. Recognizing that the estimated $2.2 million repair cost is financially impractical for the current and potential owners, Council voted unanimously to not designate the property as a heritage site. Instead, the new owners have agreed to work with the Town, the Pelham Historical Society and the Welland Museum to ensure features of merit are removed and re-purposed in the new building that will soon start construction.
