Going grey is a fantastic way to explore new options. There is more that meets the eye when you make this transition. For some people going grey is the end of constantly colouring your hair on a regular basis. If your hair is a dark colour the process takes time and you need to use products that prevent any damage to your lovely locks.

Summer is in full swing and I hope you're making the most of it getting out and enjoying all that Pelham has to offer in dining, shopping, events, and exploring.

Matt Davis is the Kitchen Manager at Iggy's Pub and Grub, where the focus is on elevated, scratch-made pub fare. Matt cut his teeth under Juan Tribianni at the 90's smash hit Mexican Restaurant, Amigos. He then tried his hand at molecular gastronomy under the French chef, Walter Blanc, at the now defunct, Pinkmans.

At Iggy's, Matt makes great use of the restaurants outdoor smoker - he brines and smokes the bacon, pork, and wings used in many of Iggy's menu features. They also make 3 different types of sausages in house, including a smoked chorizo.

This week, two skunks in an urban area of Welland, and one raccoon in rural Lincoln have tested positive for rabies.  Niagara Region Public Health has seen an increase in the number of animals testing positive for rabies in Niagara.  So far, in 2018, there have been six raccoons and four skunks test positive for rabies.  In 2017, there were a total of 21 animals that tested positive for rabies (19 raccoons, two skunks) and 12 in 2016 (10 raccoons, two skunks).  Residents should not approach any wild animal, including those that appear to be in distress, as they may put themselves at risk for injury or contracting an infection like rabies.
