Hosting an open house is a wonderful way to entertain during the holidays. Guests can come and go as their schedules allow, hosts can relax and enjoy the celebration, and the whole thing can be planned in a matter of days. With festive appetizers, desserts and drinks taking centre stage, we have a delectable selection of recipes and in-store choices that save you time and stress. Here’s how to bring the flavour to your fête.

uring the summer, we all seem to understand that we need to care for our hair. We know we need to wear sun block, hats and sunglasses. We keep ourselves, and in turn our hair, moisturized. However, when it comes to winter, we tend to forget to care for our hair. We experience the frizz, the static and the dryness, but do we know we can do something about it? Let’s take a look at winter hair care.

Welcoming 24 teams to the Meridian Community Centre this weekend as part of Silver Stick hockey tournament - hosted by Pelham Minor Hockey - the Town of Pelham is offering FREEshuttles from the Old Pelham Arena and Town Hall to help alleviate parking congestion.

They are unsung heroes. They are dedicated and selfless. They are the heart of Pelham. They are volunteers. Celebrated during the annual Volunteer Appreciation Gala on November 21, at the Meridian Community Centre, volunteers from various groups and committees were acknowledged for their invaluable contribution to the Town of Pelham and its residents. “Each of you – our volunteers, our corporate citizens – give of yourself, without any personal benefit, to help other people and to make Pelham a better place for all,” said Mayor Dave Augustyn. “And, that’s why our theme “Imagine, Believe, Achieve” is so important. First you had to imagine something better, then believed that you could do something about it, and then worked to achieve it.”

Registration for the 2019 season is open and teams are filling up quickly. Pelham leagues are typically filled by early March, as fields need to be booked and teams set well in advance of season kick-off. We don't want to have to turn anyone away so please register early!

The Town of Pelham’s public works department is preparing for the upcoming winter season and wants to remind residents what to expect, and what to keep in mind, when the snow starts falling. When snow accumulates, snow plowing operations commence. Pelham is divided into “routes”. Each route is assigned one piece of equipment and is made up of priority roads that are plowed and treated first.

When you’re viewing a property that’s on the market, you’ll probably try to imagine how your furniture will fit and look in that space. Where will your desk go in the home office? How will you position the sofa and chairs in the living room?

First, it’s often larger furniture that creates the most concern. Make sure you have those measurements on hand when viewing a property. That way, you can use a measuring tape to get a clear idea of how that particular piece of furniture will fit in the room.

Enjoy 25% off in-stock paintings at Beverly Sneath Art Gallery & Classroom. One day only from 9am - 9pm.

Are you falling behind on your Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) or other financial goals?  The solution to the problem may be simpler than you think. It's possible to increase savings and investments just by ensuring that you set aside money before it's used for other purposes. This technique, often called "paying yourself first," is a simple and painless way to boost savings. 

Styling your hair should be simple, and it starts with having the

right product. First, ask yourself what it is you want to achieve:

How much hold do you need? How much shine do you like? How

long is your hair? Ask Tracy Strycker at Salon Allegra which hair

product helps you land on the perfect style for your needs.

Always remember to apply product to the roots of your hair.
