Grape and Wine fun in downtown St. Catharines

Looking forward to seeing friends out and about for the Meridian Credit Union Grande Parade today in downtown St. Catharines, starting at 11am. This is one of the few civic events that I choose to spend with my kids; Mayor Sendzik always gracefully extends and invite to City Council to join him in walking in the parade, but given that I walk in the Merritton Labour Day Parade and the City’s Santa Claus Parade, I give this one to my kids.

A reminder to anyone and everyone who may be coming out – FILL A BAG for Community Care! This time of year the shelves start to get bare – every little bit helps, be it food donations or monetary contributions (if you can fill a bag with money, EVEN BETTER 😀 ). My awesome wife will be out leading the charge with her colleagues at Community Care, at the front of the parade picking up donations.

Hope to see you out! I’ll be on St. Paul in front of Form & Affect where my awesome friends will have a pop-up shop set-up selling ‘Niagara Rises’ merch. It’s an awesome idea with proceeds going to charity in the Region, so come by! Say hi! Buy!
