The town will provide a shuttle bus service from a Pelham Arena free parking lot on Haist St. with stops at Fonthill United Church and Marlene Stewart Streit Park parking lots. Recreation director Vickie van Ravenswaay said procceds from $5 parking fees will go to the Fonthill Lions and Lioness clubs, and, the Fonthill and District Kinette Club whose members will act as greeters co-ordinating parking. They will hand out maps to free parking areas along neighbouring streets (Station, College, Emmett, Pelham) and free lots at St. Alexander school, Fonthill United Church, Fonthill Baptist Church, Holy Trinity Church, and participating downtown businesses. “We will connect everyone with radios,” said van Ravenswaay. A Pelham Town Hall lot overlooking the bandshell will be for accessibility parking. The shuttle bus will run from 4:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. A special event parking handout includes walking and cycling travel times to encourage strolling and riding as well as driving to the three events.

WINNING AND LOSING BY STEPHEN DYELL

History was made Thursday evening, but it didn’t bring the first Niagara-born premier. Ontario Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak watched as the Liberals secured a majority government, gaining 58 seats in the 107-member legislature. “I am proud of what our team has accomplished, but I will not be leading the PC Party in the next election.” Hudak said, during an election night PC party gathering at the Mountain Ridge Community Centre in Grimsby. “I will meet with the party in the next several days as I will lead the party until a new leader has been selected. I will do so knowing the Ontario PC Party remains See Ontario Election (Page 2)

Four architects make cut Four architects out of 14 submissions are on a pre-qualification list to design a multi-faceted community complex. Treasurer Cari Pupo said the selection was made following the town’s procurement policy based on an evaluation criteria. The finalists are: CS&P Architects of Toronto, Diamond and Schmitt of Toronto, Petroff of Markham, and Macdonald, Zuberec & Enssien of St. Catharines. The next step in the process is to obtain

approval from council to proceed with a design of a centre, Pupo said. Council will appoint a multi-faceted community centre advisory committee to work with an architect on the design. It would probably be built on East Fonthill lands owned by the town at Regional Road 20 and Rice Road. The town has yet to find a way to pay for a centre. It wants a design to be ready if funding becomes available.

Ontario Election (From Page 2) strong.” Hudak, who led the party since 2009, will remain as MPP for Niagara WestGlanbrook. He defeated Liberal David Mossey and New Democrat Brian McCormack in his riding with 41.98 per cent of the vote. There were few surprises in Niagara on election night. In addition to Hudak holding his riding, New Democrats Cindy Forster and Wayne Gates were returned in Welland and Niagara Falls while Liberal Jim Bradley extended his 37-year hold on St. Catharines. PC supporters in Grimsby were shocked by the provincial results. Hudak’s election strategy seemed to rub many the wrong way – including those in the public sector. It led to attack ads urging voters to back anyone but the PC Party. Despite the defeat, Hudak held his head high, proud of his party’s aim to tackle difficult issues. “We have put important topics on the agenda, including job creation and affordable government. I’m absolutely convinced with the right change in the government that Ontario can lead again.”

Kathleen Wynne, whose party overcame a billion-dollar scandal by trashing the math on Hudak’s job plan, will be in full control of a province in decline, he said. With many regions still waiting for more job creation – including Niagara which sits with eight per cent of the population out of work – the math may quickly become a problem for the Liberals. The PC Party in the meantime, will retreat and lick its wounds after a devastating defeat. Hudak will spend more time in his riding. It is something he said he remains passionate about after weeks of crossing the province on the campaign trail. “It is a tremendous honour to representative the people of Niagara West-Glanbrook, and I will continue to earn your trust as a member of provincial parliament.” Results in Niagara West Glanbrook are: Tim Hudak, Progressive Conservative 23,539; David Mossey, Liberal, 15,761; Brian McCormack, NDP, 12,463; Basia Krzyzanowski, Green Party, 3,028; Stefanos Karatopis, Libertarian, 998; Geoff Peacock, Freedom Party, 278.

Crossley wins Green School Award FedEx Express Canada and Tree Canada today announced the winners of their third annual Green Schools, Green Futures Award, with E.L. Crossley capturing the regional title and also the lone school from Ontario. The winning entries displayed support within the school community for creating and maintaining environmental programs, partnerships with community groups, and emphasis on outdoor education. “The Green Schools, Green Futures Award is a way for FedEx and Tree Canada to raise awareness about the importance of programs that encourage greener communities and sustainable practices,” said Lisa Lisson, president of FedEx Express Canada. “We salute these schools for demonstrating a commitment to improving the lives of their children and communities.” Schools wishing to participate in the contest were required to submit an application detailing their green credentials. The application awarded points for: Ecological School Yards, Reducing Waste, Conserving Energy, Being a Caring School, and Eco Education. “We’ve been impressed by the innovation schools displayed in creating and maintaining successful environmental programs, but also by the enthusiasm and dedication by students and teachers,” said Michael Rosen, Tree Canada president. “I’m glad that this generation of students are aware and active in environmental issues - they will make great strides in bettering their communities.” The national winner will receive $3,000 cash and a plaque, and the four regional winners will receive $1,000 cash and a plaque from Tree Canada and FedEx Express Canada.

LETTERS to the editor Why is there No Cat Bylaw in Pelham? Welland has one; Niagara Falls has one. Pelham does not. Bylaws in other jurisdictions prohibit cat owners from allowing their cats to be at large. Furthermore cats are not allowed to defecate and urinate on private property other than that of the owner. Should the cat be allowed to roam free the owner will be visited by a bylaw officer and charged a fee for the offence. Should the cat be picked up and taken to the Humane Society, the owner will face an even bigger bill. Why am I so concerned about this matter? Well, let me explain. A particular grey cat that resides on Pelham St across from the Meridian, habitually visits our complex, defecates and urinates in our gardens, regularly crushes our flowers,

and even worse regularly kills wildlife in our area. Most importantly the cat recently killed a nest of baby cardinals and their mother. It may surprise some people to know that three out of every four birds that are killed in Canada, are killed by cats, both feral and domestic. When I called the Pelham bylaw office I was told my only option was to get a cage and trap the animal, then call the Welland Humane Society. Since I have no desire to be clawed I will take a pass on this suggestion. Is anyone else in Pelham interested in getting Town Council to take a stand similar to the dog bylaws that exist here? Or is everyone content with the status quo? Phyllis, Fonthill

As the weather gets warmer out, I need to stress the importance for motorist to slow down when taking back roads, such as Chantler and Sumbler. I realize they are a straight road in the country, but it’s also the street that some of us live on. Even if you are going to speed down these roads, at least have a little decency to slow down when you see someone with a stroll, or with a dog. We should feel safe to walk out our front door and go for a walk down the street; and yet, because some people feel the need to go well over 60 km/h speed limit, we don’t. We don’t come into your subdivision and speed around your neighbourhood, so have the same respect. Amy Thrower, Fenwick

Protect yourself from the door-to-door war (NC) It happens to everyone. You’re in the middle of dinner and there’s an unexpected knock at the door. Your family exchanges the ‘it isn’t for me’ glance, but still you head to the door. After being engaged in conversation by a personable water heater salesperson, you soon realize you don’t know who the salesperson works for and aren’t sure if you need what he or she is selling. As you try to understand the purpose of the visit, it can easily slip your mind that Direct Energy, government agencies, and utilities do not promote the exchange of water heaters door-to-door. “It’s important to be armed with the right questions when you’re dealing with a doorto-door salesperson. If you know the right

questions to ask, you can avoid getting talked into something you don’t need,” says John Macdonald, president and CEO of EnerCare Inc., a leading provider of energy efficient products, including water heater rentals. “Too often we hear about customers who were taken advantage of by a door-to-door salesperson because the customer was unsure of what they were actually being sold.” Here are some important questions to ask the next time a door-to-door salesperson comes knocking: • What company do you represent? • Can I see your ID? • How long have you been in business? • How many licensed technicians do you have?

• What are the contract cancellation fees? • Can you leave the contract so I can review on my own time? If the salesperson resists providing any of this information, you should be wary of their motives. Remember, you do not have to sign anything on the spot, so be sure to take your time reviewing all of the information provided. It is also recommended to call your current provider before signing anything to ensure that you have all the facts. If you have signed a new water heater rental contract and are having second thoughts, you have 10 days to cancel it and up to a year if you were misled or deceived. More information is available at www.FactsBeforeYouAct.ca.

key note speaker, the forum will draw from Pelham seniors priorities for services to make life easier. In the meantime, Reid said the 14-member committee, created earlier this year, has drawn up five goals to move forward. It will act as an advocacy group for seniors. It will strive to increase support for seniors programs. It will create pressure for public transport both within and outside of Pelham. It will set up a system for research of seniors issues. The fifth goal, she said, is to bridge gaps between seniors and other groups in the community. A list of the goals and outline of the committee objectives are in a brochure it will pass out

As an immediate project, the committee will participate in a public focus group on Wednesday. The Niagara Age-Friendly Community Network will hold it from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Pelham Town Hall council chambers. Members on the committee are drawn from various Pelham organizations. They are: Reid, deputy chair Joe Bouchard (Pelham library), secretary Del Leney, Melanie Lachnit and Kate Irwin (Mayor’s Youth Advisory Committee), David Swan (Pelham Active Transportation), Sharon Cook (Joint Accessibility Advisory), Gail Hilyer and Anne Robbins (from seniors organizations), Susan Buckingham (Pelham Cares), Bob Hildebrandt, Ed Minchin, Peter Papp (town council) and Martha Toscher (town staff).

Seniors advisory committee goes into action WAYNE CAMPBELL

for the VOICE Town council took its first advice from its new Pelham Seniors Advisory Committee. It agreed to give the committee $3,000 as seed money to begin promoting seniors issues. Committee chair Judy Reid, in a Seniors Month presentation to council Monday, said the committee hoped it will become a matching grant. It is applying for a $3,000 grant from the provincial government’s Ontario Seniors’ Secretariat. The money will help to set up and promote a Pelham seniors forum this fall. Featuring a


Multi-faceted community centre update www.thevoiceofpelham.ca

BY DAVE AUGUSTYN

Mayor of Pelham Over the last few months, Town Council has received much information regarding recreational and community centre-type needs, wants, and costs. You will recall that the Town hired LeisurePlan International last summer to develop a market analysis and business case study. After a resident survey, detailed analysis and a comparison to industry standards, LeisurePlanre commended in January that the town: • replace the existing single-pad with a new arena facility within the next five years; • design a new twin-pad facility and phase the construction – build one ice pad first (contingent on capital financ-

Page  THE VOICE of Pelham Wednesday, June 18, 2014

ing) and construct the second pad after 2023/24 (should the sustaining demand develop); • provide a multi-purpose facility to accommodate demand for participation in fitness activities, walking/running on an indoor track, and gymnasium sports; • provide multi-purpose program space; • not provide an indoor pool due to lack of demand and associated costs; In April, LeisurePlan presented various options and recommended that the town build “integrated facilities” – a multi-purpose community complex – for $22 to $27 million. (They estimated that an integrated facility would cost up to $1.1 million less in capital costs than two, stand-alone facilities.) In May, LeisurePlan projected net operating costs for an integrated facility at $63,715 in the first year, and declining slightly each year for the next four years.

As a comparison, the existing arena cost $64,366 (net) in 2011; $75,477 in 2012; and $92,486 in 2013 to operate. Since the estimated costs to operate a multi-faceted community centre is less than the existing arena’s operating loss, town staff recommended that the town could fund the costs to operate a new integrated facility. In essence, the recommendations say that the sustaining demand is here and if we can afford to construct a new multifaceted community centre, we could afford to operate it. So, how do we try to make the capital costs for a potential new community centre more “affordable” for local, municipal tax-payers? We need to fundraise and attain financial support from the federal and provincial governments. To do that we will need more detailed plans (design drawings), and tighter cost estimates. We also need to decide on a

location for the new facility – ie: whether we should retrofit / significantly renovate our existing arena (if there is room on that property) or whether a multi-faceted community centre should be constructed on our East Fonthill lands. That’s why Council recently approved establishing community design committee – with representatives from potential recreation user groups, youth, seniors, artists, and service clubs. We have also short-listed four potential architectural design firms. In July, we will consider options for a potential location(s) and will appoint design committee members. We look forward to your involvement in these decisions. You may contact Mayor Dave at mayordave@pelham.ca with questions or to suggest future topics.

Dr. Hendrik Alberts & Dr. Melissa Alberts We would like to welcome new patients in need of a Family Physician. located at 20 Highway 20, Fonthill (Shoppers Drug Mart Plaza) Please call 905-892-0008 to make an appointment.

Pelham Communities in Bloom committee hopes this Saturday’s garden tour will plant seed money in its bank account. It is nurturing a community garden project for Pelham. The 13th annual Garden Tour from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. will include eight gardens spread through Fonthill, Ridgeville and Fenwick. Committee member Bill King said there is a good variety including an English garden maze, a couple built around waterfalls and ponds, a large one resembling a golf course and colourful intimate ones of perennials, annuals and raised beds. One will feature sculptures while another backs into a woodland setting. The garden tour, with its $10 tickets, is the committee’s major annual fundraiser.

In the past, the committee helped pay for a street clock in Fonthill, heritage community signs for Fonthill, Fenwick, Ridgeville,

“We have an eye on a location but just can’t say where yet.” -- King North Pelham and Effingham, and a Highland Avenue stone gate and garden. King said planning for a community garden has moved along well. It will consist of 21 plots each about five by 10 feet with two designed for accessibility. “Those will be raised to allow people in wheelchairs to use them,” he said. The garden will serve

families without yards, seniors who moved into apartments, children interested in learning about gardening, and anyone interested in flowers or vegetables. For the community garden project, Communities in Bloom has partnered with the Pelham Horticultural Society and Greening Niagara, an eco education group. “We have an eye on a location but just can’t say where yet.” The $10 tour tickets are available at Pelham Town Hall, Pelham Town Hall, Rice Road Greenhouses and Vermeer’s Garden Centre. Light refreshments will be served at one location. King said the garden tour gives residents a chance to learn from other gardeners, visit beautiful backyards that they may not normally see, and enjoy the abundance of vegetation in Pelham.

Town to repair washed out road

BY WAYNE CAMPBELL

for the VOICE The town will shuffle funds to fix flood damaged roads. Chief Administrative Officer Darren Ottaway told town councillors Monday he will immediately shift an estimated $40,000 in road maintenance money to repair Sulphur Springs Road and a section of Effingham Street. “We have to get the work done” to reopen Sulphur Springs, he said during council’s planning and priorities committee meeting. The road, along with a piece beside Effingham, were washed out by flooding following during recent heavy rains.

Ottaway asked councillors for permission to shift another $117,000 to create a capital contingency fund in anticipation of further damage this year. “We have been told no one has seen anything like this before,” he said of the level of flooding this spring. If the heavy rains continue through the summer and fall, there could be more road damage, he said. Among the projects that may be delayed are sewer and water installation on Highland Avenue in Fonthill and resurfacing on a stretch of Effingham Street near Metler Road. Ottaway said he would not want to cut into regular summer maintenance such as weed trimming and road surfacing because the projects are tendered and awarded. It would involve breaking contracts, he said. A detailed report on the emergency road repairs and a contingency fund will be presented to the regular meeting of council on July 7.

Lyme disease prevention: how to remove and dispose of a tick (NC) Lyme disease is an emerging infectious disease in Canada and the risk is increasing. Canadians engaging in outdoor activities like golfing, camping, hunting, fishing, hiking, property maintenance and outdoor workers such as park officers and surveyors should be on the lookout for blacklegged ticks. They could be carrying the bacterium that causes Lyme disease. If you find an attached tick on your skin, carefully remove it with clean tweezers. Removing the tick within 24 to 36 hours usually prevents the risk of infection. Grasp the tick’s head as close to the skin as possible and pull slowly straight out until the tick is removed.

Do not twist or rotate the tick and try not to squash or crush it during removal. After removing the attached tick, wash the bite area with soap and water or disinfect it with alcohol or hand sanitizer. If mouthparts break off and remain in the skin, remove them with tweezers or, if you are unable to remove them easily, leave them alone and let the skin heal. If possible, note the day of the tick bite. Contact a doctor immediately if you develop symptoms of Lyme disease. Early treatment of Lyme disease is key. For additional information on Lyme disease, visit Canada.ca/health.

Mayors unite to help launch Women’s Place social media campaign

Women’s Place of South Niagara launches new campaign to raise awareness of their programs and services as they enter the 5th year of a funding freeze. “We’re not only a service provider, but we want to change the face of our community to reflect our vision – a community where women and children live free from violence and abuse”, said Ruthann Brown, executive director of Women’s Place of South Niagara. “The number of women accessing our services has increased dramatically in the last few years. In 2013, we had 359 women and children stay with us. The previous year, we had 286 – that’s 73 more women and children staying in our shelter or up 25% from the previous year. This Campaign can empower participants to make a collective impact and effect change.” added Brown. That was the rationale behind the Women’s Place 5, 5, 5, Campaign. On Tuesday, June 10, Niagara Falls Mayor Jim Diodati formally launched the 5, 5, 5 Campaign by texting ‘LOVE’ to 20222 and Paying it Forward. “It was very easy to participate. I made my donation, Paid-itForward at my office and then forwarded the info along to the other mayors in communities that Women’s Place serves challenging them to participate as well”, said Mayor Diodati. “We serves all of South Niagara, so we’re hopeful that each mayor will join the challenge and make the launch a success” said Haley Bateman, development manager at Women’s Place. Mayor, Dave Augustyn (Pelham), Mayor Vance Badaway (Port Colborne), Mayor Barry Sharpe (Welland), Mayor April Jeffs (Wainfleet) and Mayor Douglas G. Martin (Fort Erie) have each been challenged by Diodati. “Anyone can participate – and we encourage people to do so,” added Bateman. “The Campaign has already proven to be a great opportunity to express gratitude. Business owners and Supervisors have participated in the 5, 5, 5 Campaign and have told us that it’s changed their work environment. “It’s a small donation to a very worthy cause and to do something nice for our staff was easy and they are certainly deserving.” said Jeff Corey, Director of Sales for Harrow Sports Canada. President of the Elementary Teacher’s Federation of Ontario, Todd Rimmington was one of the first to join the Campaign. “The ETFO have been supporters of our local Women’s Shelters for many years. It’s engrained in what we do as one of ETFO’s priorities is to promote social justice in the areas of peace, anti-poverty, non-violence, and equity. To join the 5, 5, 5, Campaign was easy and when I was approached to participate, I liked the idea. I said ‘yes’ immediately.” added Rimmington. The social media campaign has a simple 3-prong approach. Text ‘LOVE’ to 20222 to donate $5 to Women’s Place. Pay It Forward for Women’s Place by doing a good deed in the community, in your office or in your neighbourhood and then nominate 5 friends to do the same. “We want people to share their experience as they participate in the Women’s Place 5, 5, 5 Campaign through Facebook and Twitter”. For more information please call Haley Bateman at 905-356-3933 ext 240 or by email at haley@wpsn.ca.

(NC) No matter how often you have travelled with your little one there are tips to help with both road and airplane travel. • Plan ahead and know what to bring – Prepare a checklist to ensure that you have all your essentials for travel, don’t forget the baby’s passport. As well, consider planning your travel around your child’s sleeping schedule. • Consider your car seat – Confirm that your child’s car seat is FAA approved to be used on airplanes. All Evenflo car seats with an internal harness have this approval. • Keep baby comfortable – Car trips can be long for both baby and parents. To help your child be more comfortable consider the Evenflo Platinum Protection car seat series. The Outlast Performance fabric keeps your child cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The happier the child, the smoother the car trip will be.

Summer concert series opens Thursday night at Peace Park

Music is back at Peace Park, and it gets off to a powerful start with the talented Kimberley Wetmore. The Toronto native, who began her career at age 12 in musical theatre, has been topping charts in Europe, South America, Asia, and the United States. Fonthill Bandshell committee member Jim Casson says Wetmore remains one of the bigger catches for the concert series. Her dynamic voice appeals to many, making for a great opening night. “She’s a fun and exciting performer,” Casson said. “The show is what works which is why we’ve taken it up a notch. More and more big names are being added to the concert series – including Wetmore.” Casson says most of the hard work of planning and booking performers happens over the winter months, allowing

for the committee to enjoy the performances themselves. The biggest worry, he says, remains the weather for opening night. “There are always some sort of twist when planning something of this magnitude but we’ve been lucky the community has embraced us as a ‘must-see’ event each summer.” While the summer concert series allows music fans to attend free of charge, the committee relies on donations to book performers. The more donations, the bigger the performer the Fonthill Bandshell Committee volunteers can bring into the town. Thursday’s show runs from 7 to 9 p.m. at Peace Park in Fonthill. For more information, go to www.fonthillbandshell. com.

Golf tournament raises over $4,000 for Pelham Cares The ping of iron could be heard at Sparrow Lakes Golf Club last Wednesday as Duliban Insurance Brokers Limited hosted their first annual charity golf tournament. Adam Duliban, along with a handful of volunteers, helped organize the days festivities, which also featured 150 prizes donated by local businesses to help draw in golfers. “It’s truly important for us to support the community’s we represent,” Duliban said. “Our charity committee looks around each year, and it became very apparent all the good work Pelham Cares is doing here, so we decided to raise funds for them.” The group raised over $4,000 for the day, from business partners, clients and fans of the sport.

Duliban says he’s thankful for not only the local support, but the support from those who took a chance on a course that looked like rain could hit any minute. “The weather turned out to be OK, making for a great day of fundraising and golf,” he said. “There were a lot of volunteers behind the scenes making this tournament possible. We’re apart of the community so it’s a great event to give back to those who’ve supported us since the start in 1976.” Duliban says the committee remains on the lookout for charity opportunities in Niagara as they prepare for next years tournament. An announcement on the date and location will be made at the end of the year.

Heritage tea party in Ridgeville June 29

Pelham’s Heritage Tea Party on Saturday, June 29, will be at the newly renovated Ridge Berry Farm Tea Room. From left are : Julie Cook, Pelham recreation culture and wellness programmer; Carol Bennett, manager at Ridge Berry Farm; Del Leney, 2014 Heritage Tea Committee member; and Christine Scholaert , owner/operator Ridge Berry Farm This year Pelham’s Heritage tea party on Saturday, June 29, will move down the road to Ridgeville from Fonthill. Organizers encourage participants to put on period costumes and join in hat and fascinator contests during for the third annual event. It will be held in the renovate Tea Room at Ridge Berry Farm at 398 Canboro Road. Originally, the tea party was held in Pelham Town Square during Canada Day weekend.

The tea party, tied to Pelham’s Canada Day celebrations, brings to life the Victorian high tea tradition with a main and kids menus of locally grown food along with teas, scones, shortbread, sandwiches cookies and fresh tarts. Some attending wear period costumes while many put on hats. The June 29th tea party will have three seatings: noon to 1 p.m. 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., and 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. Each visitor will receive a jar of

jam made by Ridge Berry Farm. The afternoon will also feature heritage displays, photos, music and stories. Tickets at $10 each are available at Pelham Town Hall (20 Pelham Town Square, Fonthill) and Ridge Berry Farm (398 Canboro Road, Ridgeville). The tea party is funded federal government through the Department of Canadian Heritage.

More seats would attract more income to a community complex. Ward 3 Coun. John Durley, looking at an information report on a multipurpose community complex, asked why did the business case consultant LeisurePlan International limited seating to 250 and 500 in a signal and a dual-rink complex. “If we had more seating, we could have revenue flow from more events,” he said. At 250 or 500 a new complex would meet the needs of minor hockey and other current users but more seating could widen the use, he said.

Ward 3 Coun. Peter Papp said the seating should be 1,200 to 1,500. Other new complexes have gone that way and found it worthwhile, he said. Recreation director Vickie van Ravenswaay said the consultants were following a seating pattern from the current arena, which seats about 300. Chief administrative office Darren Ottaway said the seating is not a recommendation. It was something a community centre advisory committee would work out with an architect in the design phase of such a project.

Town council Monday received a report comparing cost of building a single ice pad to building a twin ice pad for a multi-purpose complex. In addition to the rinks the complex would include a fitness centre, gymnasium, track, community rooms and spaces, service areas and an administrative centre for the recreation, culture and wellness department. With a single ice pad it would cost $22.1 million to $26,8 million. With two ice pads it would increase to $35 million to $39.7 million.

More seats expand market appeal

Strawberry Festival continues tradition

On Monday, students at Glynn A. Green are participating in their first annual “Hairy Challenge”. Over 35 students plus several moms are donating their ponytails to the Pantene Beautiful Lengths program which makes wigs from the ponytails and then donates the wigs to the Canadian Cancer Society who give the wigs to people who have lost their hair due to cancer treatments. The day will began with an assembly, reminding students what we are doing and why and celebrating all of the people that have decided to donate. People who feel more positive about themselves are better able to deal with difficulties associated with cancer and the treatments. For some people feeling more positive is very difficult because of the trauma of the hair loss caused by some cancer treatments. Real hair wigs are extremely costly -- several thousands of dollars and often unaffordable to those that need them. The people who are participating in this very powerful donation can literally change someone’s life.

The long tradition of the Strawberry Festival continued over the weekend. “This has been going on for decades in Pelham,” Firefighter Darcy Baker said. “The Shorthills Volunteer Fire and Rescue held the festival over by St. Johns before. And when the station moved, so did the festival with its launch at White Meadows Farms.” The festival celebrating warm weather and summer’s beginning remains s a focal point for families in Pelham. With activities such as face painting, bouncy castles and firefighting equipment on display,

the day makes for an educational visit into the life of local heroes protecting the town. “Everyone in the community looks forward to it. It’s a great chance to get out and support the local fire department – while having fun too.” Baker also witnessed the festival grow over the years. Generations of locals return each year to take in the sight and sounds of Pelham’s most underrated event. “We’ve got parents who were kids when they went to their first Strawberry Festival who are now bringing their kids,” Baker said. “It’s just a

terrific set-up which benefits everyone involved.” He’s also thankful for the support from White Meadows Farms who took in the festival when it was without a home. Keeping the tradition alive inside the town it blossomed in has been a big bonus for volunteers and firefighters too. “They put all their stuff on hold for a day while giving us the site, so you couldn’t ask for more. Folks have been pouring in since we opened so it’s beneficial to everyone involved.”

Town council Monday waived $694 in fees for rental of the Fonthill bandshell by the concert committee over the summer. It was in response to a letter from Gayle Baljtes-Chataway, chair of the summer concert committee. She also asked the town for picnic tables, garbage cans, washroom facilities, lighting in the park and their maintenance. The committee’s volunteers will be covered by the

town’s insurance policy. Ward 2 Coun. Gary Accursi asked why the request was coming in so close to the opening of the concerts. Ward 3 Coun. John Durley said the town has been approving the request for nine years and wondered why staff could not handle it. Mayor Dave Augustyn said the success of the concert series has seen an increase in the town’s participa-

tion. “We didn’t see thousands of people when it started now we will have to double the number of picnic tables” as well as consider building washrooms rather than placing portable ones. The concerts success has attracted a new event, Pelham Supper Market, which opens Thursday between the bandshell and the10-year-old Pelham Farmers Market.

Fees waived for bandshell concerts
