As we welcome the start of the Christmas season, we look forward to all it brings.
Even though this year is very different, I invite everyone to tune in online at waterdownbia.ca for the virtual Annual Holiday Tree Lighting livestream on Saturday, Nov. 28. The livestream will feature special guests, music, magic, dancing and a lot of holiday spirit.
The new Waterdown Dog Park at Joe Sams Park is ready to be enjoyed by our fur babies. The dog park, which has two separated runs for large and smaller dogs, is located next to the lower parking lot at Joe Sams Park, just north of Waterdown on Centre Road across from St. Thomas the Apostle Church.
A 40-kilometre section of Dundas Street between Waterdown and the Kipling subway station in Toronto has been identified by Metrolinx as a preferred option for a bus rapid transit (BRT) corridor. The BRT route will span Waterdown, Burlington, Oakville, Mississauga and Toronto along Dundas Street.
Originally to be a GO bus connection, requested many years ago, I am over-the-top pleased that it finally looks like Waterdown residents and the businesses in the Waterdown business parks located west of Clappison Corners will finally be connected. Residents with jobs in the GTA will be connected to the east and businesses at the business parks will be connected to an employee base. Find out more at judipartridge.ca.
Healthy Youth Network (HYN) of Waterdown is excited to launch an online youth portal at youth.healthyouthnetwork.ca to connect students to information to help with day-to-day stresses and important career or personal decisions they may face. HYN is here to help youth, students and young adults choose the best path forward. If you have or know of any information, resources, programs or support that should be included, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
December 6 is a National Day of Remembrance and Action. Join us for a virtual candle-lighting memorial on Dec. 6 as we remember the 14 women senselessly gunned down at École Polytechnique in Montreal and honour our missing and murdered Indigenous sisters.
A memorial service will be available through the Interval House of Hamilton YouTube channel. For details, call the Women’s Centre of Hamilton at 905-522-0127.
