It’s gratifying when people support local charities that improve our community; it’s fun when people get dressed up for a great time. The Annual Mayor’s Gala combines both opportunities! On Saturday, May 26, 2018, community volunteers will host the Tenth Annual Pelham Mayor’s Gala. This year’s magic-themed gala will appear “right before your eyes” at Lookout Point Golf & Country Club at 6:00 PM.

If you're an investor, you know the impact that volatility can have on your portfolio. Ups and downs in financial markets, individual securities and even mutual funds can have you smiling one day, worried the next. However, it is possible to manage volatility so price fluctuations won't be such a concern. When you understand volatility and how it works, you can take steps to manage its impact. 

We look forward to about ten artists who will be here for the first time and to about 65 artists who have been here before and they will be bringing their most recent creative talent for you to admire and to purchase.  We also have invited past scholarship recipients to let us know where their path has taken them and received a lovely response from one of them that demonstrates the influence that art can have.  You will see some examples of reviewing the past since this is our final year in this arena location.

Grilling is a year-round pleasure for Canadians. Of course we do it at the height of summer, when our backyards are filled with family and friends, but we’re also out there on the coldest winter days, when we need a little taste of sunshine on our plates. The greatest thing about grilling – other than keeping the heat out of the kitchen! – is that you can do it night after night, and you’ll never run out of possibilities for new and delicious meals. One secret: You can switch things up with a variety of marinades, rubs and sauces.

​Spring branch collection starts next week on May 7 and continues until June 1.  Curbside branch collection is available across the region to all residents living in single-family homes and apartments with six units or less.

And Summerfest would like to help you help yourself.  We have many volunteer roles available throughout the festival weekend from greeting guests at the gates to manning the bike valet.
