A MESSAGE FROM MAYOR SUE PATERSON It’s an exciting time as Council, Boards and Committees are transitioning into new roles. We’re busy preparing to refocus our municipal priorities, beginning with a refresh of our strategic plan. The term we hear most often is “progressive”. To me, this means working with our residents, neighbours and stakeholders to achieve realistic economic development, youth retention and regional collaboration goals. Launch Pad, our regional youth skills development centre is an excellent example of what we can do when we work together. Drop by and take a tour – youth and staff would love to share their achievements! We’re committed to providing great programs, activities, events and services that encourage community development and support a healthy lifestyle. Once summer is in full swing, I look forward to our Sights & Sounds Festival. This year, along with all your favourites, we are featuring some new and dynamic local performers, exciting interactive activities and, in an effort to reduce waste and create a more eco-friendly environment, we are taking steps in becoming green. Hanover’s Biggest Block Party rolls into town the last full weekend of July. Save the date – July 25 to 28, 2019!

PARKS, RECREATION & CULTURE GUIDE

This summer celebrate Canada Day with us. Take in the Agricultural Fall Fair, August 9 to 11, begin your weekend at our farmers’ market, or enjoy the thrill of live harness racing Saturday evenings. Spend some quality time outdoors with friends and family – visit our parks, walk the trails or take in a ballgame. There is lots to do around town.

Volume 10 / 2019...........................................22

Have a wonderful summer!

Having a farmers’ market is in the best interest of the community, as it is all about community, food, friends and a sense of sharing.” And Raffi says “Your friends are my friends and my friends are your friends!” Eat Well Market vendors look forward to seeing you and all your friends at the market this season and for years to come.

which had succumbed to fire in 1965 and the words thrust themselves into my mind, “Oh, not again!” I knew there would be no sleep that night if I did not find out where the fire was. Jumping in the car, we approached the Main Street from 10th Avenue south and from a distance, we thought it might be the white Lutheran Church. As we got closer, we kept revising our guesses - the fire seemed to be farther away than that. “The Library’s on fire!" ... Oh, please not the library!... No!.. It’s the Bank of Commerce!.. Do we have any money in that bank?... Wait!.. Hey, it’s the factory! It was indeed Knechtel’s factory. 10 / ATMOSPHERE

consumed, but also several closely located stores and businesses. On hearing that his factory was ablaze, Mr. Knechtel chartered a special train to get home quickly from Toronto. By then, all that remained was a mass of ruins, fallen masonry, and tangled and twisted machinery. Even the factory whistle, which had pathetically blown throughout the entire ordeal, had finally ceased its screaming. Some say that Daniel had rough plans drawn for a new factory before he arrived at the station in Hanover. One year exactly to the day (December 20, 1901), the new factory was opened. Although, this was probably Hanover’s


most spectacular fire, It was not the only major fire in the town’s history. In 1919, the William Knechtel and Son Feed Mill was destroyed in a spectacular blaze. The old “red mill” had been built by one of Hanover’s pioneers, Henry Proctor Adams, in 1855. At that time, it was located near the Saugeen River at the north end of town to take advantage of abundant water power. Edward Knechtel rebuilt the mill but moved it away from the river nearer to the rail lines. Today, this is Hanover’s oldest industry P & H Milling. On January 27, 1937, the town hall was gutted by a blaze during which the fire department actually lost a truck. Some of you might remember that one. The fire department, at that time, was located in the basement of the town hall and it was later determined that the fire started in the vehicle itself. During the early hours of March 2, 1950, many people awoke to see the reflection of flames dancing on the walls of their bedrooms. The “Red School” was on fire (this is now the red apartment building near the curling club). The alarm was sounded at 3:15 a.m. When the fire department arrived, they found that the fire hydrants were frozen and they finally, in desperation, had to douse them with gasoline and light them on fire to thaw them out. At 9:00 a.m. the next morning, water was still being poured onto the ruins. At one point, the principal, James A. Magee attempted to enter the building, but turned back when

BUSINESS PROFILES PREPARED BY: KATE BLYTHE

is a proud Gold Sponsor of the Hanover Sights & Sounds Festival Founded in 1970 in Hanover by George Allen, Electrical Contacts Limited is the only contact maker in Canada and is known globally for their product. “ECL is a manufacturing facility for sintered metal contacts.” Tammy Louther, ECL’s human resource personnel explained. “The contacts are the components that go into mostly residential circuit breakers. They’re tiny little contacts that are made up of different powders and metals. We make them right from the raw form to the end product. We supply them to customers like Eaton Electric and Siemens Electric, where they would then build a residential circuit breaker.” ECL is a family owned business with Peter Allen, the son of the founder, now in charge. Allen and ECL’s vision and mission is clear. Be number one in product quality and be sustainable so they stay within the community. “It’s a benefit to Hanover (to have ECL in town). We provide jobs to 130 people including production associates such as manufactures and shop floor employees, skilled trades like tool and die, millwrights and maintenance department. We have an engineering department, customer service, shipping and receiving. If you can keep those jobs here in town, they’re spending money here, paying rent or mortgages here, it’s the circle.” said Louther. She also explained that they’re only too happy to give back to Hanover. One of Louther’s responsibilities is to manage the donation budget. “In the last two years I’ve been responsible for donations in supporting the community because sustainability is important. Peter wants us to be a pillar in the community, so it’s nice to be able to give back in donations to places like Launch Pad, the hospital foundation and Sights and Sounds.” Electrical Contacts Limited is a front runner in so many ways when it comes to how they run their business, and how they treat their workers is another. Louther explains how this isn’t just a place where you go in and swipe your badge but are valued and encouraged to grow. “It’s a positive place to work. (Employees) have a part in making improvements and we recognize that it starts right from our production associates. It’s kind of the inverted triangle where we know they’re the most important part of the puzzle and we have to support them. This is a job where you can be part of something bigger, be part of a project to make something better.”

is a proud Platinum Sponsor of the Hanover Sights & Sounds Festival Eastlink. A telecommunications provider like no other. Stemming from the blueberry fields of Nova Scotia and making its way across Canada, the Bragg family has made sure to keep in touch with the rural communities like the one they’re from. “Eastlink is a Canadian telecommunications company, and we’re very proud to be Canadian,” regional manager for Southern Ontario, Ron Mervis explained. “Being family-owned-and-operated is important. It helps to differentiate us. The family values come out in how we run the business and how we interact with our customers and community.” Eastlink’s services are powered by their fibre optic network and include internet, TV and phone. “We continue to invest to ensure our Internet product is reliable and fast. We have speeds up to one gigabit of internet in these rural areas, and we have a product called Wi-Fi Protected. It takes over the whole Wi-Fi experience in your house so you can manage how much time people are on the internet, different passwords for guests that come over, and you can even say when enough tablet time for the day is and shut it down.” said Mervis. On Eastlink's TV side, they were the first company in North America to offer what they call TV Channel Exchange. This product allows customers to swap out certain channels from their packages for different ones. “It gives you really good flexibility and you can make those changes whenever you want through our web portal.” Mervis explained. Something new for Eastlink is their Smart Home product. It’s security and automation in one. “You can check from work to make sure your garage door is closed or watch through the video doorbell to see if your Amazon package has arrived.” Mervis described this wonderful new feature for Eastlink customers. Eastlink is committed to giving back to the Hanover community and is proud to continue their Platinum sponsorship of Hanover’s Sights and Sounds Festival. “We want to support the events that are important to the community.” So, when you see that blueberry blue logo, remember that Eastlink is from rural Canada and will continue to support rural Canada with its wonderful telecommunication services and products.

Sights & Sounds

The Community Improvement Partnership has been working very hard to plan the 15th Annual Sights & Sounds Festival. From July 25th – 28th, 2019 we will be celebrating Hanover’s Biggest Block Party once again. This year, along with our signature events, we plan to grow and enhance the festival with the help of our local organizations. New events including Axe Throwing and a Lego Block Party will be taking place, and we will be starting the initiative to go green with the help of Culligan Water and a Water Cart – so don’t forget to bring your reusable water bottles to this year’s event. We are currently looking for sponsors for the 2019 festival. This event would not be able to run or grow each year without the help of our amazing sponsors. There are sponsorship opportunities available for businesses of any type and budget. From being a friend of the festival to a presenting sponsor, there is a package to fit your needs. If you would like to volunteer at this year’s festival, we are happily accepting volunteers by filling out the form on the Sights & Sounds Facebook page or by going to www.sights-sounds.ca. There are volunteer positions for every type of person from set up and tear down to ticketing and so much more. We also provide volunteer hours for high school students. Our festival would not be able to run without the help of our many volunteers, and we so appreciate the continued volunteer support. We are looking forward to seeing you and celebrating in the 15th Annual Sights & Sounds Festival this summer in Downtown Hanover.

Business Profiles

Be sure to check out some of our Sights & Sounds Sponsors who have submitted a Business Profile within this edition of Atmosphere. Business Profiles can highlight any aspect of your business with a professionally written article and photo along with social media support. If there is something within your business that you would like to tell to all residents and businesses of Hanover, there are still Business Profiles available in the Fall edition of Atmosphere.

It was also a finalist in the prestigious Lieutenant Governor’s Award for best achievement in the province. We are so grateful that Norfolk County and the person who created the program, Jerry Sucharyna, have allowed us the opportunity to replicate SSUP here in the Saugeen Region. This program is designed to fuel the creativity and business skills of Saugeen Area Students for 2019!

Town of Hanover Selected as a Community Partner of New Rural Ontario Institute Project

The Rural Ontario Institute is partnering with 10 different communities and community organizations from across Ontario on a new initiative: Municipal Internship: Youth Engagement Strategies. Hanover feels honoured to be one of the community partners selected for the project. The other partners include; Timmins Youth Wellness Hub, Perth County, Northern Wellington (collaborative), South Huron, Wellington Big Brothers Big Sisters, Brock Youth Centre, the Municipality of South Dundas, Recreation Outreach Centre – Picton, and the City of Brockville. Each partner has developed their own unique approach to youth engagement, tailored to address needs in the local community. The interns will be tasked with implementing local workplans. ROI will be working alongside the partner communities to provide a collaborative environment for the interns, including an in-person orientation session and an online platform for knowledge sharing. “The workplans we reviewed from all 35 communities who submitted Expressions of Interest have been quite impressive,” says Project Lead, Ryan Deska. “Communities are looking at youth engagement from a number of different angles, from workforce development, to inclusivity, to health and well-being. It’s encouraging to see this kind of energy focused on better engaging youth in the future of their rural communities.” Final reports from this project will be shared publicly following its completion, outlining promising practices and lessons learned. “We are thrilled to collaborate on this initiative,” says Town of Hanover Economic Development Manager, April Marshall. “We will utilize the intern to develop youth engagement plans to further strategic priorities as they relate to youth, find innovative ways to share stories on youth doing cool things in our community, and further engage youth on current community activities and initiatives, as well as assist us in our political engagement efforts.” ROI will be working with these communities as their projects unfold to gather information and help share their experiences. The intent is to share these stories in a way that other communities might find helpful ideas and inspiration for their own well-being projects. Final reports and a final webinar will be shared publicly following the completion of this project. The Rural Ontario Institute is a non-profit organization committed to developing leaders, initiating dialogue, supporting collaboration and promoting action on issues and opportunities facing rural and northern Ontario. The 4-month youth internship will begin in May.

LAUNCH PAD YOUTH ACTIVITY AND TECHNOLOGY CENTRE Emily Morrison // Executive Director, Launch Pad

Launch Pad Tackles Local Workforce Issues through March Break Program Over March Break, Launch Pad Youth Activity and Technology Centre hosted nine youth aged 14-18 in a three day program "Exploring Careers in Health Care" in an effort to highlight all the different careers in Health Care over and above the traditional careers of doctors and nurses.

"Launch Pad's foundational funding comes from the Town of Hanover's Economic Development Department which means Launch Pad has a mandate to contribute to the economic and workforce development of our local community. When it was brought to my attention that health care, and in particular our local long-term care centre, was in need of strengthening their workforce, I knew we could help and it was an honour to help." Emily Morrison, Executive Director, Launch Pad YATC. The first activity on their first day was a meet and greet and tour of the Hanover & District Hospital followed by interviews with many different practitioners at the Hanover Family Health Team. That same afternoon, three volunteers from our local St. John's Ambulance let the youth check out their ambulatory vehicles and discussed what it meant to be a paramedic and a St. John's Ambulance Volunteer. The second day was led by Sandra Hong, Public Education Coordinator of the Alzheimer Society Grey-Bruce. The youth learned about and discussed Alzheimer Disease in addition to completing the certificate program Gentle Persuasive Approach, a 'must have on the resume' in today’s health care employment opportunities. The final day was a full day spent at The Village Seniors Community by Revera. A hands on experience offered youth the chance to understand what long-term care means and tour the facility, in addition to dressing wounds and giving needles - all in mock situations of course! The youth also achieved Introduction to SALT (Safe Ambulation Lifts and Transfers) training – another highly recognized skill that can be added to their resumes. Dylan Subject, Executive Director Revera - The Village Hanover commented on the March Break program: "The opportunities Launch Pad YATC is providing the students in our community is just one of the many reasons why this is the best place in the province to live. Being able to partner with Launch Pad during the ‘Exploring Careers in Health Care’ Program and have the students come into our home was so important to the Village Seniors Community by Revera because it allowed us to play a role in building that sense of community. We were thrilled with the chance to lead our local youth, connect with them and provide them with meaningful and tangible training that will better prepare them to succeed as they move forward with their education and into their respective careers." April Marshall, Economic Development Manager at the Town of Hanover was instrumental in bringing a partnership between Launch Pad and Revera together. “We are very proud of the partnerships formed with our business community to cultivate our workforce. By exposing youth to local career options we are showing them our investment in their future, while supporting business in their labour force attraction efforts. Developing a skilled workforce and retaining our youth is essential to strengthening and nurturing our evolving local economy.” Launch Pad intends to continue developing the local workforce by continuing to add skill development programs and unique opportunities for our youth. The summer 2019 schedule for full-day programs is now online and registration is open! 20 / ATMOSPHERE

P & H Centre

Time

9:00am - 4:00pm (supervised drop-off from 8:00am - 9:00am and supervised pickup from 4:00pm - 5:15pm)

Ages

Mini Me’s - 4 & 5 years | Crazy Critters - 6 & 7 years | Super Troops - 8 & 9 years | Teen Adventures - 10 to 12 years

Things You Should Know About Camp! 1. Camper Pick Up and Drop Off Campers 9 years and younger MUST have adult supervision at all times during morning drop off and afternoon pick up. Please ensure that regular escorts and emergency contacts are recorded with your registration. Only those adults listed will be permitted to pick up your child(ren). Please notify us of any changes in your child’s pick up routine by calling 519.364.2310 x 2134. This is our safe arrival hotline. Children are NOT allowed to leave early without written consent from a parent or guardian. 2. Ages See specific camp description for ages. Participants must have turned the minimum age and not exceed the maximum age by the first day of the camp week that they are registering for. Camp leaders will take age difference into account when programming activities. Our camp ratios offer a maximum of 1 leader to 10 participants. 3. Lunch and Snacks Due to the life threatening allergies that children in camps have to peanuts/nuts, our summer camps have become a “nut aware” environment. We therefore request all parents to avoid sending peanut or nut products to camp. Please send energizing foods including fruits, vegetables and drinks. Limiting “sugary” foods is highly recommended. 4. Medical Information Health and safety is our number one priority. Please ensure that we have up-to-date information about your child’s medical conditions including doctor’s name and an emergency contact that can be reached during the hours of 8:00am - 5:15pm. 5. What to Bring Parents will receive a “Parent Handbook” which outlines specific policies and details as to what campers should bring. 6. Swimming Campers enjoy 1 hour of pool time daily. 7. Payment Plan If registering for 2 or more weeks, a credit card payment plan may be utilized. Credit card payment for the first week registering must be processed on the date of registration. The remaining dollar amount will be divided evenly and processed on your credit card the week prior to the start of the program. (i.e. If registered for camp July 22-26, the payment will be processed July 15). Subsidy is available. 8. Behaviours Kamp K utilizes the stoplight system for discipline. Depending on the situation, the following steps will be taken: a) Green Light: You are having a GREAT DAY! b) Yellow Light: A verbal warning: Child has explained to staff what they did wrong and how this behaviour can be corrected in the future. c) Orange Light: 10 minute time out: Staff removes a participant from the activity. d) Red Light: Meeting with Camp Supervisor and/or Program Supervisor and note home to parents. Depending on the severity, may result in removal from camp. Children are to follow the guidelines and rules that will be discussed each morning, remain with their program leader at all times and play cooperatively. Any offensive language or actions will not be tolerated. Safe Arrival Hotline If your child is NOT attending camp for any reason, please call us at 519.364.2310 x 2134 prior to 9:30am so we can inform camp leaders. 32 / ATMOSPHERE
