Niagara homebuyers did not let the cold weather slow down their house shopping plans. Home sales in January and February were up 7% across the Niagara Region.

Locally, our Pelham and Welland markets outperformed regional results. Residential sales in Pelham were up 7.7% with 28 transactions year-to-date compared to 26 last year. The big story is the resurgence underway in Welland!

Last week I wrote here about some of the major projects in the Town’s 2015 Capital Budget. Here’s some more information about other planned improvements.

Sometimes people ask me what it takes to become a translator. Can anyone who’s bilingual translate? The short answer is no. Just because someone is bilingual and has the ability to understand and interact in both languages doesn’t mean he or she has the skills necessary to translate something correctly from one language to another.

Now in its 29th year, the Pelham Art Festival is the premiere spring art exhibition in Southern Ontario. Over 70 juried artists exhibit artworks ranging from original paintings in oil, acrylic, encaustic, pastel, pottery, ceramic, raku, woodcarving, glass and jewellery. There is something for every taste and every budget.

Proceeds benefit Pelham Libraries and Community Arts projects. The Pelham Art Festival has proudly donated over $375,000 back to the community.
