Fortunately, there are plenty of short and long hairstyles for older men – even those with gray hair, thinning hair, or a receding hairline. For example, hairstyles for men over 50 with salt and pepper hair include side parts, brush ups, the modern comb over, or even buzz cuts. Any of these classic styles and cuts would look great for mature men – it’s just a matter of styling and being confident in your look.

The Rotary Club of Fonthill is a group of business women and men who meet weekly in Pelham for the purpose of humanitarian service and fellowship. We raise funds for local projects (Wellspring Niagara and Pelham Cares, for example, or Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Niagara) and international projects (Fog Quest and eradicating polio, for example).

In celebration of our 73rd Anniversary Lion Steve Pellerin organized a special program of storytelling at our April 3rd regular meeting. During the past year our Fonthill Lions Club has enjoyed a reemergence that with a 50%+ increase in our membership.

It’s been another busy winter for Paul as he hunkered down to hand craft hundreds of birdhouses to be sold in Niagara Habitat for Humanity ReStores in Fonthill, Grimsby and St.Catharines.
