Portrait on the Bridge – May 18, 2013 @ NOON

From Gord Willson and Donna Bailey:

“The ‘Village Portrait on the Bridge’ to promote Spring Festival is a way to gain greater attendance at our annual event and it is the foundation of the idea that we must gain greater public support. On 25 May, we all become ambassadors of the village for survival.”

Please join us on the bridge – May 18 at noon for the portrait.  See the attached image below for more details.

Trees for Isobel Thompson

Isobel and Tommy Thompson have been the heart and soul of Whitevale for a very long time.  To commemorate Isobel’s life and dedication, the Whitevale and District Residents’ Association (WDRA) has decided to honour her memory with a bench and three large trees in the Whitevale Park.

Anyone who wants to take part in this project is more than welcome.  We are looking for both labour and financial donations to cover both the immediate and ongoing costs; please see the attached letter for more details.

OMB Decision – Heritage

The decision regarding our heritage issues has been decided by the OMB.  We put forward a strong case and felt that we had won… The board recognized all our issues but ruled against us. Other Heritage Conservation Districts should take note and recognize that Heritage Designation provides no protection from the Province of Ontario.  Click here for the full decision (14 pages).
