Welcome to LaSalle!

There is so much to do and enjoy for all ages in LaSalle—from our sports fields to our trails, splash pad to our playgrounds, Night Markets to our festivals, swimming pools and even the Detroit River. The LaSalle Civic Centre comes alive with food, entertainment and vendors on the last Sunday in June, July and August during our Night Markets. Be sure to try some delicious local strawberries at the annual LaSalle Strawberry Festival taking place at Gil Maure Park on Front Rd. from June 6 - 9. Also at Gil Maure Park, new this year, we are excited to host Rendez-vous Voyageur, a festival on September 20 and 21 that will commemorate LaSalle’s history of the French Explorers, the First Nations and the Métis. On behalf of LaSalle Council, we can’t wait to see you celebrating all that makes our community the best place to live. We are Living LaSalle and we hope that you will join us! Sincerely, Marc Bondy Mayor, Town of LaSalle

Delving into LaSalle’s heritage By Michael Michalski

Everything old will be new again this September in LaSalle, as the Town gets set to embrace it’s historic Francophone and Indigenous heritage with RendezVous Voyageur. The free, first-ever event takes place Saturday, September 21st at Gil Maure Park, with the previous day set aside for special activities with area students and day camps. Rendez-Vous Voyageur promises to offer attendees a trip back in

time to the late 1600s and early 1700s, depicting the times in which the town’s namesake—René-Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle—first came ashore in nearby Petite Côte. Organizers aim to present an authentic experience of the early French settlers. “We are excited to bring a new festival to LaSalle,” said Mayor Marc Bondy. “We celebrated LaSalle’s 25th anniversary as a Town on June 1, 2016, and have been learning a lot about our history. The Rendez-Vous Voyageur Festival will

La Salle the Explorer

Did you know that the daring nautical explorations of France’s René-Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle not only had a huge influence on the town we know him by today but also several other well-known cities throughout the United States? Born November 22, 1643 into a wealthy family in Rouen, France, La Salle is recorded as giving up his inheritance at the age of 15 to initially attempt to become a Jesuit priest, prior to asking to join his brother Jean abroad in New France (Quebec) at the age of 22. He landed on the island of Montreal in 1622. “The Voyageurs arrived and then started to explore the waterways,” explains the Town of LaSalle’s Director of Culture and Recreation Julie Columbus. “They figured out that they could travel through Lake Ontario to get to Lake Erie

and, then, through Lake Erie, they could get to Detroit—which is a French word that means ‘the waterway that joins two lakes.’ The word literally talks about this straight of riverway that joins Lake St. Clair and Lake Erie. “La Salle, our namesake, also went through the Ohio River and the Mississippi River and stopped and founded areas such as Memphis, Tennessee; Louisville, Kentucky; as well as New Orleans, Louisiana those were all him. He is the founding voyageur for all those places in the States. It’s kind of neat!” La Salle, however, would eventually meet a tragic end. In 1684 amid an expedition to challenge Spanish rule in Mexico by establishing a French colony on the Gulf of Mexico at the mouth of the fabled Mississippi, he was killed by a mutinous crew after the voyage encountered several fatal mishaps. He was only 40.

commemorate our local Indigenous and French history working with community partners to provide visitors and residents the opportunity to step back in time and experience the authentic elements of these two cultures.” The Town’s Director of Culture and Recreation Julie Columbus said the enthusiasm for the festivities throughout the area is already being felt. “We’ve been lucky so far,” says Columbus. “We’re looking for to explore more sponsorship s but we have been strongly embraced by the Francophone community and different partners that we’ve been meeting with.

We’ve been very fortunate. “ We w i l l h a v e e n t e r t a i n m e n t , interactive displays, demonstrations, hands-on experiences, food, crafting— as it will be geared for all ages.” Columbus says the Town is looking to take a cue from neighbouring Amherstburg and its signature historical presentations, this time, focusing on this particular area’s roots—en français. To that end, Rendez-Vous Voyageur has already recruited talent and individuals from similar events in Edmonton and Michigan—as well as attractions—such as historical re-enactors, an ancient lacrosse group,

Walpole Island, an encampment demonstration and a pyrotechnic show to cap the event off with a bang. In addition, the public will also be offered a chance to learn to make a birchbark canoe, taste traditional cuisine and shop from the unique merchants of both French and Native culture. “We knew that the War of 1812 and the British history is commemorated through Amherstburg, and that story is done really well but what isn’t commemorated is the story previous to that, the French presence here in the region,” she says. “We’d be looking at anything mid1600 to early 1700. This town has the oldest continuous European settlement in all of Ontario because of French explorations. There is just a ton of history in this area. “It’s ideal for every region to commemorate their history. The history is really important to this region because the French Explorers really

shaped Ontario and Canada via the waterways and fur trading routes. Their arrival and the way they interacted and created the fur-trade route really built a lot of what the European settlements are based on, so that repertoire in the beginning was established all along the Detroit River. That impacts not just LaSalle but Windsor, Belle River—you can see the Francophone pockets still today. That history shaped the picture not just for this region but all of Ontario.” “To that end, it is hoped the event will have both local and regional appeal,” says Columbus, “including Francophone areas throughout Ontario. A supportive marketing blitz will launch approximately eight weeks beforehand, including billboards, commercials as well as ongoing social media.” “We will also have a presence at other events and venues throughout the summer (and) we’re using our website to post vignettes on specific topics every

month that will help people learn our local history and tying in those cultural components.” A day of this magnitude takes the work of many individuals with the town already having set in motion several plans to secure as many interested, helpful parties as possible. Columbus says anyone looking to lend a hand is more than welcome to step forward to volunteer. “Currently, we have a handful of dedicated staff that are helping with this event, but to make it happen we are also working with the French school boards to get a volunteer base; people we are bringing in also have their own staff of

volunteers; and the University of Windsor is involved. We’ve really branched out and tried to pull in as many partners that would be engaging while still trying to make it authentic. We want this to be an authentic experience for people to come and enjoy. “If anyone is interested in volunteering, participating or being involved with entertainment or as a vendord, should definitely reach out to us!” For more information, visit www.lasalle.ca or write to rendezvousvoyageur@LaSalle.ca

Summer in LaSalle By Michael Michalski

It just wouldn’t be summer without the Strawberry Festival June 6-9th – but that’s not the only attraction to mark down on your “To Do in LaSalle” list this year. For starters, a series of Night Markets are returning June 30, July 28, August 25 at the LaSalle Civic Centre. Patti Funaro, Manager of Culture and Recreation, says the market demanded more markets and the Town was only too happy to oblige. “The Night Markets last year were a

huge success,” says Funaro. “They were extremely popular, as the community really embraced it. Every time we do them, we are getting better.” Among the dozens of vendors, Funaro says there truly is something for the whole family to enjoy. “We have live entertainment, we have food trucks, we have anywhere from 35 to 40 vendors—everything from fresh, local produce, handmade items, lots of small, local business that feature a lot of handmade items,” she says, adding, “We also have children’s entertainment, a mini-golf course that we will have set

up, face-painting and other children’s activities. “We’re looking forward to a great year of Night Markets.” Outdoor movie nights are also once again in the offing, including a special screening of material geared more toward an adult audience, as opposed to the usual all-ages fare. This one will take place on June 21st in celebration of National Indigenous Peoples Day, with a screening of RUMBLE: The Indians Who Rocked the World which is a feature documentary about the role of Native Americans in popular music history. And then, of course, there is the ever popular Strawberry Festival. “Our annual Strawberry Festival promises to be as great as ever,” she says. “Attendees can expect all the things that they are used to, so—of course—fresh local strawberries; our parade; our fireworks over the Detroit River; and live music. We also have Acro-Bark as our family entertainment. It’s a combination acrobatic and dog show which is really exciting. Our headline act is Abbamania Canada along with a tribute to the Bee Gees, Night Fever.” Last but never least, the Town is also reminding visitors of its aquatic facilities as well, including the LaSalle outdoor pool on Front Road at Laurier Drive and LaSalle splash pad at the Vollmer Culture and Recreation Complex. “We’ve got lots of great activities here. We are all very excited for the summer!” For more info, visit www.lasalle.ca See Community Calendar on page 28

A town linked by trails By Michael Michalski

What for many communities remains a dream is very much reality for the Town of LaSalle—namely walkable, connected neighbourhoods, intertwined amid almost 40 kilometres of pedestrian and bike-friendly trails. The product of “three decades of effort,” according to Larry Silani, Director of Development and Strategic Initiatives, the trail system is something many throughout the town take pride in.

Halibut & Cod Specials Every Tuesday!

“What’s unique about the trails is that, you could think, ‘Okay, I’m two kilometers away from my family or friends—I don’t have to jump in the car. I can easily ride my bike safely or I can walk. It brings neighbourhoods together and provides lots and lots of choices as to how they move around,” says Silani. “For some, they are going to continue to use their car, and that’s okay, too. But for a lot of the population for health reasons and lifestyle reasons, more and more people are choosing to get out and

use these facilities on a regular basis.” Silani worked with the town back w h e n t h e tr a i l s y s te m i n i t i a l l y commenced in 1989. “At that time, you could appreciate, it was still a rural community. “There was a recognition that we needed to move forward and start to create a community that is safe, that people can walk, that people can ride their bikes comfortably in an environment that was safer than riding on streets.” Silani admits that, at least initially, the idea to retrofit several areas during the evolution of the trail system was a tough sell, both in the town and abroad. “We certainly knew that there wasn’t acceptance in other parts of the region. There was a lot of pushback,” he says.

“Here, every time we’ve gone through that exercise, there are a few people that are against that. At first, nobody wants to give up part of their front lawn to put up a trail or a sidewalk or a bike lane. In reality, it’s not their front lawn. Those are town-owned or city-owned boulevards that are part of the road system. “Once they are in, you see people of all ages—grandparents with their grandkids, people of all ages and abilities—are out there walking and riding their bikes. “It certainly is something that helps create the fact that we have always had a lot of good will and it is encouraging to council to keep doing that.” See Trail Map on page 16

Heritage Park upgrade Past year’s showers will soon bring new flowers for LaSalle’s Heritage Park, specifically by playing a role in reducing area flooding, and by adding a sparkling new playground with all-star amenities. The genesis of the renovation followed several massive flooding events in recent years that affected several area residents. The Town eventually received a $1.5 million grant from the National Disaster Mitigation Program, a figure the Town matched—

putting a total of $3 million into an active kitty to carry out improvements, including constructing a dry pond storage area at Heritage Park. That work is scheduled to begin this summer. However, with plans already in place for such extensive renovations, the Town looked deeper into making the most of a bad situation. Suffice to say, Heritage Park will soon never be the same again, says the Town’s Director of Culture and Recreation, Julie Columbus. “We knew (Public Works) were going

in there to disturb that area, so we thought it was a good opportunity to revamp and enhance what that community and that neighbourhood had. We knew it needed some work.” Among the amenities scheduled to begin installation in September include a new parking lot; removal of existing swing-set and climbing apparatus; a new shade structure with accessible picnic tables; new basketball and Pickle Ball courts and more. “We’re also going to put in a full-size

soccer pitch. Existing there right now is, well, I wouldn’t even call it a backstop—it’s an old fence that kids were using as a backstop,” says Columbus.
