Rotary Club of Fonthill in partnership with the Welland Pelham Chamber of Commerce hosted a Meet and Greet for all candidates running for Council,  Regional Council, School Boards and Mayor on Tuesday night at the Fonthill Legion followed by an informative debate with the three Mayoral Candidates.

On Saturday, September 15, 2018, the Meridian Community Centre officially opened its doors to the Pelham community. 

It’s for the kids.

With the doors barely open, they were little more than a blur, pint-sized flashes of lighting zigged while others zagged. Last one in was a rotten egg.

They pitched screams of excitement, releasing the uninhibited laughter found exclusively in children; they were experiencing moments of joy in its purest form. They ran up, down, and around both human and inanimate obstacles, resolved to cross a seemingly never defined finish line. Movement, it seemed, was their only goal. And boy did they move.

If you can exercise regularly, you’ll help yourself feel better, control your weight and even reduce the chances of developing certain diseases. But why not extend the concept of “fitness” to other areas of your life – such as your investment portfolio? And to help maintain a healthy portfolio, you can draw on some of the same principles that apply to keeping your body in good shape.

Older men looking for hairstyles may feel limited by their options. Fortunately, there are plenty of short and long hairstyles for older men – even those with grey hair, thinning hair, or a receding hairline. For example, hairstyles for men over 50 with salt and pepper hair include side parts, brush ups, the modern comb over, or even buzz cuts. Any of these classic styles and cuts would look great for mature men – it’s just a matter of styling and being confident in your look.

Meaty mains dominate the summer grilling season, but these veggie sides will give them a run for their money.

The Town of Pelham, in conjunction with the Pelham Seniors Advisory Committee, is hosting a free active living fair on Tuesday, September 25, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Meridian Community Centre. The fair features a variety of activities, made up of three main components: physical activities, social activities, and nutrition and wellness. Booths, displays, demonstrations and presentations for each of these three areas will be set up throughout the centre.

In addition to his duties as Mayor of Pelham, Dave has been active in his role as Regional Councillor, representing Pelham at the Region.

Dave has earned his reputation of being a prepared, engaged, and hardworking Niagara Regional Councillor taking the time to thoroughly review background material, ask the tough questions, and make mindful decisions

Work with the newly elected Council to quickly build consensus to:

1. Encourage Citizen Engagement and be responsive to all citizens of Pelham:

• Public forums
• Advisory committees • Town Hall meetings

2. Ensure Excellent Fiscal Management to ensure Pelham’s nancial health:

• Manage assets strategically
• Employ strong nancial tools
• Explore alternative delivery methods of core services

Congratulations to the Town of Pelham! On Saturday, residents and guests were invited to 100 Meridian Way for the grand opening of The Meridian Community Centre!

Bianca Tomori stopped by to check out the new 143,000 square-foot multi-purpose facility that boosts two gyms, twin pad hockey arena, community multi-purpose space and much more!

Niagara voters unable to cast their ballot on Election Day, or attend an Advance Poll, have another option: a voting proxy. A voting proxy is someone who will cast a ballot on another’s behalf in their absence. To appoint a voting proxy, voters must complete the Appointment for Voting Proxy – Form 3, which can be found at, or can be picked up at your local municipal Clerk’s office during regular business hours, including  Voting Day.

We’ve all heard the phrase a “Man’s Best Friend” at some point in our lives – and many of us may have witnessed the bond between pets and their owners through personal experiences or Hollywood films like Marley & Me. But can the loss of an animal companion really have a devastating impact on its owner? The short answer is yes.

Looking for a lift to the Meridian Community Centre grand opening? The Town of Pelham is offering a free shuttle, starting at 9:30 a.m. and running until 3 p.m. and then again from 5-10 p.m. The shuttle will run continuously during these times with pick ups at the old Pelham Arena (1120 Haist Street) and Pelham Town Hall (20 Pelham Town Square).

Hairstyle books typically found in salons show few hairstyles for seniors. These books usually feature hairstyles for younger women and children. For this reason, mature women frequently turn to the Internet for inspiration when it comes to their hair. In general, hairstyles that flatter seniors should complement their skin tone, face shape and hair texture--the same rule applies at any age. Just because a woman is older than does not mean she cannot pull off a modern , stylish haircut.
