Our local community platform will be represented among the Niagara community development initiatives participating on the discussion panel at the Movie Screening & Discussion - A New Economy at The Film House on Wed. June 28th.

A New Economy – explores what would happen if working together for the good of all was the most common business model.

Mayor Dave Augustyn’s Column for week of 19 June 2017

Over the last two Wednesdays I presented updates about the developments in Fonthill East to residents of the senior’s apartments on Pelham Town Square. I thought I would share some of those updates here with you now.

CANADA DAY: Saturday, July 1, 2017 1:00-10:15PM Join us at Harold Black Park to Celebrate the 150th Canada Day!

There is so much fun to be had, starting with the always popular inflatable bouncers, slides and paddle boats.

Whether you shaved your head or simply don't have hair, your scalp still needs plenty of TLC (tender, loving care.) Oils and dirt can still build up on your scalp. Here are a few tips to keep in mind:

The Rotary Club of Fonthill is providing fun for the community on Canada Day at Harold Black Park,Fonthill. There will be plenty to amuse children who are celebrating the holiday.  Kids of all ages can enjoy bouncing on several inflatables. Toddlers will love the Animal Kingdom where they will find pop-up zebras,dolphins,lions and giraffes. A climbing structure and slide will keep energetic kids busy and entertained.

Pelham residents are being encouraged to reimagine the Pelham Arena site on Haist Street, and to share their ideas at the upcoming community co-design workshops on June 26 & 27, 2017. With construction of the new community centre, and its taking over of the main arena facilities, the Haist Street arena will be decommissioned; the structural integrity of the building will not permit it to be repurposed.

Show us your best slider for a chance to be crowned Top Chef at the Fonthill Lions inaugural SLIDERFEST barbeque competition.

Niagara's local area municipalities have unanimously supported a Regional bylaw that grants the Region authority to establish, operate and maintain an inter-municipal transit system. This means Niagara Region can continue alongside St. Catharines, Niagara Falls and Welland in creating a single, consolidated transit system for Niagara. It also means Niagara Region Transit can begin to transition from a pilot program to a more permanent service.

The Town of Pelham, we are fortunate to have a variety of recreation and parks systems providing countless recreational opportunities for residents and visitors from around the world.

When I grew up and attended St. Alexander School, the Fonthill Plaza didn’t exist: no Shopper’s Drug Mart or Beer Store or Giant Tiger. In fact, I have distinct memories of walking through long grass and along a warn footpath to the Pelham Library – which was situated in the basement of Pelham Town Hall! And, the school was just an “L-shaped” building in those days – before the addition in the 1990s. The octagon-shaped Church along Hwy 20 (where the current playground is) was replaced in the 2000s.

The Pelham Medical Associates hosted the second annual Pelham Peewee tournament this weekend for eight visiting Southern Ontario teams. The first game was won 12-4 over Waterdown with starter Ethan Wells pitching five strong innings with MVP battery mate Wyatt Gibson calling the pitch selection. A tie against yet undefeated Kawartha on Saturday afternoon left the boys just short of advancing to defend their 2016 tournament title. Beautiful catches by Jake Laewetz and Nate Girling in the deep outfield keep the game close while the bats when to work. A triple by Cole Townson and multiple singles by game MVP Jake Passmore contributed to the run production. A leaping line drive catch by second baseman Will Baltrusiunas kept the game at a tie and allowed Wyatt Gibson to pitch the complete game.

Summerfest has great live music yes, but the entertainment doesn’t stop there!   We’ve got buskers, an old fashioned sideshow, hula hooping, puppet shows and more.

High debt levels ... lack of savings ... the inability to budget – these problems all have several causes, but one of them is almost certainly financial illiteracy. Too many of us just never developed the money management skills necessary to cope with our complicated – and expensive – world. But if you have young children, you can teach them some money-smart lessons – and who knows? You could use the opportunity to give yourself a few valuable reminders, too.

Your recipe for success this year is our wide variety of solutions that will help you prepare delicious meals for any occasion.

Fonthill Kinsmen President Ryan McKay and Kinsmen Home Show Chairman Dave Ripley present a cheque for the amount of  $3000.00 to Eleanor Stasiw of Pelham Cares. The funds were raised from the recent  Kinsmen Home Show admissions gate.
