Happy New Year Pelham! Council, Staff and I look forward to 2018 as a year of social, cultural, recreational, and economic growth in the Town – moving us closer to being the most vibrant, innovative and caring community in Niagara. Last year saw growth, prosperity, and many milestones to improving our community. Because the community has been underserviced commercially for so long, many were pleased with the opening of the commercial developments along Regional Road 20 in Fonthill in 2017. 

Not all investments are created equal. Some are better suited for short-term goals, while others can help you build resources for objectives far in the future. As an investor, then, one of your biggest challenges will be to match your short- and long-term goals with the appropriate investment vehicles. How should you proceed?

Few things top off a family celebration better than sharing a delicious cake. It’s a relatively easy to make dessert, and once you have a few classic cakes in your repertoire, you can get creative and add your own personal touches. There are hundreds of cake options out there, from fluffy sponge to fudgy chocolate gateau to creamy cheesecake. These are our 10 favourites that will please all tastes and can be adapted for any occasion.

Nominations are now open for the 2018 T. Roy Adams Humanitarian of the Year Award. The award honours the memory of the late Councillor T. Roy Adams and is presented annually to a current resident of Niagara who best exemplifies Roy’s values and dedication to community service; a person who sees volunteerism as an integral part of their life. Last year’s winner was Tom Rankin.

If only my hairstylist could travel with me on vacation. Life of a snowbird or winter traveller is wonderful, but who will do your hair and how can it be maintained ? Tracy Strycker has
several clients that ask these questions but it's not as difficult as you think. Depending on the length of your visit, you always need a plan. For those clients who are more structured with schedules they can always book appointments before and after the trip with Tracy at Salon Allegra. This assures you that your timing will be perfect especially if you have hair colour services. The online booking makes it easier to book an appointment prior to returning.

For most people, a vehicle is a major investment, second only to buying a house. A National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) study found that at least half of consumers neglect routine maintenance, with young people being the least likely to keep up with service schedules. Almost two-thirds of automotive technicians believe that consumers can take care of their vehicles’ maintenance and repair needs for less than $500 annually. Considering the average cost and complexity of a new vehicle, you may be penny-wise and dollar-foolish if you neglect routine maintenance.

​As a result of the cold weather, collection contractor staffing and vehicle issues, curbside garbage, recycling and organics collection continues to be delayed across Niagara. The collection contractor, Emterra Environmental, was unable to complete all of Friday’s garbage, recycling and organics collection across the region by Sunday, December 31, despite their efforts.  

Comfort food means something different to everyone, but classic comfort dishes all have one thing in common: they make you feel good. As the colder weather approaches, it’s time to revisit those savoury and sweet foods that we know and love.

The holy grail of Canadian football was brought to St. Kevin Catholic Church for a special visit on Tuesday December 19th.

It was Toronto Argo Chris Van Zeyl’s turn to have the Grey Cup for a day. Van Zeyl is part of the Argonauts team that won the Cup November 26 in an exciting game played in Ottawa.
The visit to the Welland church made the morning for associate pastor Father Jim Mulligan, an Argos fan and a fan of most Toronto sports teams.

Let this New Year be the one, where all your dreams come true, so with a joyful heart, put a start to this year anew. Wishing you a happy and prosperous New Year 2018!

Rising demand and low inventory set the tone for a seller’s market in Niagara through 2017. As unaffordability increased in the GTA, more homebuyers expanded their search area as far as Niagara.

Speculators and investors also flocked to the area in search of real estate, further reducing inventory in the face of increasing demand. Single-story detached homes were the hot commodity in the region, contributing to a 23 per cent price increase in the year-over-year average residential sale price.
