Niagara’s tiniest patients will have care closer to home thanks to the addition of five new beds on Niagara Health’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). The NICU can now care for sicker babies after Niagara Health received provincial government support for the beds, supporting resources and equipment. 

Following public consultation and approval from both regional and municipal councils, an updated Smoke and Vape-Free Outdoor Spaces Bylaw is now in effect for the Niagara region.

Two photos that came from last year’s calendar published by the Wainfleet Historical Society deserve attention. Both show the Feeder Canal crossing in Wainfleet. One dated 1909 shows the channel at the end of its career while the other is dated in the 1840’s. What is evident when closely viewed is that these photos were shot at the same time and by the same photographer!

When trouble occurs, who do you call?  GHOSTBUSTERS!! Well not really, but Welland Rotary is much like that team, except Rotarians work within the community, very often operating below the radar, to help the community on many different levels. For example, when Rotary discovered that some elementary schools were falling behind in the purchasing of up-to-date equipment, we stepped in and, working with the principals, created the Educational Technology Program in order to make sure that the students had the necessary tools to succeed.

Potential to win $10,000 in time for Christmas! Proceeds support Welland Rotary’s local and international projects.

As summer comes to a close many students will be heading off to school – and we know post-secondary education can cost big bucks – but furnishing your place doesn’t have to!
