PUT YOUR FAMILY ON THE RIGHT PATH

WITH PERSONALIZED E S TAT E P L A N N I N G It’s tough to think about what happens when we’re no longer around, or when we lose capacity. It’s even tougher for our families when this happens. When we don’t plan for these situations adequately, we make a hard time that much more difficult for our loved ones. We all know we need Wills and Powers of Attorney, but did you know they are not all created equal? At Brown Lawyers, we know that all families are different, and becoming more complex all the time.

@BROWNL AW YERS

Even if you have a Will and Powers of Attorney in place, “basic” estate plans may not provide for the circumstances that make your family so special. Improper or inadequate planning is a major source of stress for those left behind and can have a huge negative impact on your family and your legacy, both financially and emotionally. Whether your family is blended, traditional, non-traditional, or multigenerational, we offer custom solutions that work for you. We also help

families that own businesses together prepare for succession in a way that makes sense for them. We want the families in our community to be confident that their legacies will be passed on in a way that will set the next generation up for success. We’ll help you explore the relationships you value in your life to come up with the best estate plan for your family’s unique needs.

Celebrating

JOSEPH BRANT By Leslie Styles

Celebrated in Lasalle Park, August 5th was Joseph Brant Day as proclaimed by the city of Burlington. Jo Brant, the famous Mohawk Chief, was one of Burlington’s original settlers during the early 1800s. Visitors to the park enjoyed live performances; The Eagle Flight Singers and Dancers, Chinese Performing Arts Society, and Caribbean Steel Drummer, to name a few. There were numerous children’s activities including trampolines, the steam zone, water relay races, and so much more. There was a large market of local vendors and a food truck rally. Perogies from the ‘Stuffed’ food truck were a tasty popular choice. Many guests ventured into the wading pool, finding relief from the blistering heat.

Waterdown Blooms

FOR AFRICA By Leslie Styles

The Blooms for Africa Garden Tour, through the Stephen Lewis Foundation, raises funds to support Grandmothers caring for orphaned children in Africa who have lost their parents to AIDS. The movement began in Canada and continues to spread to the US, UK and Australia. Wandering through Waterdown Gardens took place in the evenings of July 12th and 13th and was proudly sponsored by Woolcott Realty and Dawn Victoria Homes. It included some of the most stunning backyards in the village, featuring inviting pools, live music and fire pit areas. One yard even had a chicken coop and converted army barracks. It was a great opportunity for everyone involved to share and obtain gardening knowledge and inspiration.

impleMARINADED SCUCUMBER SALAD Cucumber salad gets better as it sits. Make this several hours ahead of time and leave it at room temperature. It will last several days in the fridge. I love serving this with grilled meat, chicken, fish or burgers. The flavours are super simple and go with just about everything! Serves 8.

INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

• 1 English cucumber

STEP ONE: Using a knife, slicer on a food processor or mandolin, slice the cucumber into 3mm slices. Place slices in a medium-size mixing bowl.

• 1/4 cup rice vinegar • 1 tsp sesame oil • 1 tsp honey or sugar • 1/2 tsp kosher salt • 1 tbsp toasted black and white sesame seeds

STEP TWO: Drizzle the vinegar and oil over the cucumbers, sprinkle with the honey and salt, mix and toss together very well. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, toss. STEP THREE: Let marinate at room temp for about 30 minutes or longer before serving. Toss again before serving. ◆

The Enchanted

GARDEN By Leslie Styles

August 3rd-5th was Enchanted Garden weekend at RBG’s Rock Garden. Magic and fairy dust were in the air as pixies, fairies, gnomes, and sprites gathered for a number of wondrous activities. Costumed little people got their faces painted, ate hot dogs, made their own magic wands, listened to fairy tales and sent a note to a friend via the pixie post office. Larger-than-life flowers, ribbons, and butterflies lined the garden pathways. Guests, young and old, seemed to love every minute of it and many were return visitors from previous years.

Easterbrook’s

FAMOUS HOTDOGS By Leslie Styles

It’s easy to believe Easterbrook’s has sold over 1600 miles of hotdogs and over a million pounds of ice cream since its opening in the olden days. A Burlington legend, this famous hotdog establishment has been selling its footlongs since 1930. Tucked in behind the RBG building on Spring Garden Rd, Easterbrook’s is a hidden treasure, quickly identified by the crowd of customers waiting to sample any of the 22 hotdog varieties available, burgers or ice cream. The building, from the 1920s, once shared its space with the Willow Cove Post Office, and was quite the popular meeting place for locals to gather and share the latest gossip. A visit to Easterbrook’s is a stroll into the past with its black, red and white wall tiles, black and white tiled floor, and red stools. The booths are covered with the initials of hundreds of dreamy-eyed lovers, who had carved hearts into the tables, some decades ago, to declare their undying love for each other. The shooting game and pinball machine inside the front door, are leftovers from the fifties. The ceiling is plastered with business cards and the walls, with autographed photos of the famous people who have enjoyed the ambiance here. Signed pictures of Martin Short, Jim Carey and Red Green grace the wall behind the cash register. There have been a couple of motion pictures made on site, such as Red Green’s Duct Tape Forever and the Terry Fox movie. Ex Maple Leaf, Doug Gilmour, a nearby neighbour, pops in for a bite every once in a while. If you’re lucky enough to speak with Blake, the fourth generation owner of Easterbrooks, he will tell you about his dad Ray, his Grandma Irene and his Great Grandma Mabel, who originally began the business as a tea room in the late 1920s. Blake is toying with some new ideas for Easterbrooks but will not sacrifice the preservations of the past. There may just be an ‘invent a new hot dog’ contest, according to Blake, so you may want to start thinking of different ways to jazz up a weenie.

Cruising for a

CAUSE By Leslie Styles

On July 9th, Team Bullock Remax Real Estate hosted the 4th annual Cruising for a Cause in the Royal Botanical Gardens parking lot. They sold items and encouraged donations to raise funds for the Green Angels. The Green Angels’ RBG Program, Growing Up Green, provides children with the gift of nature by enabling free education, admission and transportation to youngsters who may not otherwise be able to enjoy RBG field trips. There was a great nostalgic line-up to be admired. The French’s Volkswagen Beetles from the 70s were displayed with A&W trays latched on to the windows, holding fries and root beer. There was a ‘black cherry’ ‘69 Camaro with a gorgeous underlying red. David Craig displayed an ‘85 Thunderbird equipped with a vintage Motorola phone. The display of all these beauties made for a very enjoyable evening of ‘Cruising’. NeighbourhoodMagazine.ca
