We often forget about those that are caring for a loved one through an illness . Not only do we forget but the caregiver often forgets to take care of themselves.

 As a caregiver you need to make sure to keep healthy , and not just #physically but #mentally as well. You are the "strong one" and just with that title that puts a ton more bricks on your shoulders. 

Ways to make you healthier... 

On Friday October 16th, M.T. Bellies had a small smoldering fire inside an exterior wall of our restaurant. Due to the nature of the wall damage in accessing the core of the fire, our main cooking production line is out of commission. We are continuing our operations with a modified menu where meals are being prepared on our separated prep line. We have over 50% of our menu still available, however some grill and fried items are not possible at this time.

Our personal Events Coordinator will look after all the details of your event from the time of booking up to your event date to ensure your event is a success.  Our Executive Chef will work with you and the Event Coordinator to create your desired menu from our banquet package.  Our professional staff is committed to providing first-class service and look forward to working with your on your event.

(We planned for this and approved a new pumper in our 2015 Capital Budget.)

Enjoyed a very entertaining performance  of The Tale of a Town  St. Catharines at the Odd Fellows Hall 36 James St in St Catharines last night. Originally slated to be the first presentation at the new First Ontario Performing Arts Centre, the production was reworked to adjust to the more intimate space at the Odd Fellows Hall when the new Centre was not complete in time.

There is a sign on Rice Road near Highway 20 that proclaims that you are entering the Niagara Escapment. Another exists on the Merritville Highway close to the bridge that is currently being replaced. Both leave you to wonder why those locations were chosen as they do not appear near any noticeable slope. In fact, the  escarpment is not defined by a straight line nor is there a singular designation for the escarpment areas.  In fact there are several escarpment zones with differing features and differing levels of development control.
