WELLAND BIA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR RESIGNS

Amanda Macdonald, Executive Director of the Welland Downtown Business Improvement Association (BIA) has submitted her resignation effective as of May 24th as she has accepted the position of the Executive Director with the Oshawa BIA.

Despite a relatively short term in Welland that began in February 2018, Amanda has made a significant impact.

“Amanda is an exceptional young woman who brought high energy, resourcefulness, and an extraordinary work ethic to the position”, said Kelly Jones, Downtown BIA Chair.

Past BIA Chair, Dolorese Wright, stated, “Amanda’s fundraising and friend-raising gifts were quite remarkable.  Businesses within the boundaries of Downtown Welland are its members and pay the BIA levy along with their property taxes. However, despite being our only staff member, Amanda was able to raise $150,000 over and above that levy in grants, sponsorships, and event revenues. Her Wellandopoly fundraising campaign was especially successful.”

Vice Chair, Brenda Herchmer was impressed with Amanda’s community building skills and ability to engage businesses and other partners. “Her New Horizon’s Community Garden project and the Downtown Patios initiatives are examples of that kind of effort.  She also played a key role in the successful coordination of special events including 2018 Feast Street Niagara, Canoe Polo International Championship Opening Ceremonies, Concerts on the Canal, and Canada Day.”

 

Board secretary Alyssa Adams was especially appreciative of the Downtown Community Report Card. “While Amanda is moving on and will be missed, that survey gathered feedback from both businesses and residents and as such has provided a clear direction for moving forward.”

 

While the Downtown BIA Board of Directors is sad to say goodbye to Amanda MacDonald, they extend sincere congratulations and warm wishes for success in her new position.  Please join us at a Farewell Open House that will be held at Matteo’s Ristorante at 125 E Main St on May 24th from 3:30 to 6:00 PM.

For more information on the Welland Downtown BIA please contact Kelly Jones at chair@downtownwelland.ca.

LA DIRECTRICE EXECUTIVE DU BIA DE WELLAND DEMISSIONNE

 

 

Amanda MacDonald, la Directrice Exécutive du Secteur d’Amélioration Commerciale du centre-ville de Welland (BIA) a déposé sa démission qui prendra effet à compter du 24 Mai du fait qu’elle a accepté le poste de Directrice Exécutive du BIA d’Oshawa.

 

Malgré une période relativement courte à Welland qui a débuté en Février 2018, Amanda a eu un impact considérable.

 

“Amanda est une jeune femme exceptionnelle qui a apporté à ce poste son dynamisme, son ingéniosité ainsi qu’une incroyable éthique professionnelle.” Kelly Jones, Président du BIA.

 

L’ancienne présidente du BIA, Dolorese Wright, a déclaré “La collecte de fonds d’Amanda et le respect qu’elle porte à ses collègues sont remarquable. Les commerces qui font partie de la zone du BIA sont ses membres et payent une redevance avec leurs taxes foncières. En plus de ces redevances et en dépit d’être notre seule membre du personnel, Amanda a réussi à récolter $150,000 de subvention, sponsors et recettes d’évènements. Sa campagne Wellandopoly a été particulièrement réussie.”

 

Brenda Herchmer, Vice-Présidente du BIA de Welland est impressionnée par la capacité d’Amanda à développer la communauté et à impliquer les entreprises ainsi que d’autres partenaires. “Son projet de Jardin Communautaire et l’initiative des Patios du centre-ville sont d’autres exemples de ses efforts constants. Elle a également joué un rôle clé dans le succès de la coordination des événements spéciaux tels que le 218 Feast Street Niagara, la Cérémonie d’Ouverture du Championnat International de Canoé Polo, Les Concerts sur le Canal, et Canada Day.”

 

 

La secrétaire du Comité Alyssa Adams a particulièrement apprécié la fiche de rendements de la communauté du centre-ville. “Malgré le fait qu’Amanda nous quitte et qu’elle va nous manquer, ce sondage a permis la récolte de retours de la part des résidents et des commerces, information qui fournit une claire direction pour l’avenir.”

 

Bien que le Conseil Administratif du BIA de Welland est triste de dire au revoir à Amanda MacDonald, les membres du Conseil tiennent à sincèrement la féliciter et lui font part de leurs vœux les plus chaleureux dans sa réussite professionnelle pour son nouveau poste. Venez vous joindre à nous pour le pot de départ d’Amanda au restaurant de Matteo au 125 E Main Street le 24 Mai de 3:30 à 6:00 PM.

Community Gardens

Community Gardens

 

Welland ON le 9 mai 2019 – Le SDAC du centre-ville Welland est fière d’annoncer le lancement du Jardin Communautaire.  En 2018, le SDAC a présenté une demande de subvention au gouvernement du Canada dans le cadre du Programme Nouveaux Horizons pour les aînés. Vers la fin du printemps 2019, nous avons appris que la subvention de 25000$ avait été attribuée.

Le Programme Nouveaux Horizons pour les aînés fournit des subventions et du financement à des projets qui font une différence dans la vie des aînés et de leurs communautés en renforçant leur autonomie ; en les encourageant à partager leurs connaissances, leurs compétences et leurs expériences avec les autres membres de la communauté ; en plus d’améliorer le bien-être social et la vitalité communautaire des aînés.   Gardant cela à l’esprit, la SDAC centre-ville Welland a présenté une demande de subvention en vertu des paramètres voulant que le financement soit utilisé pour aider la population locale de personnes âgées à concevoir, construire et entretenir un jardin communautaire dans la zone de chalandise du SDAC centre-ville Welland.               Nous sommes ravis de communiquer que le projet Jardin Communautaire sera situé au noyau de la zone de chalandise sur la propriété de Niagara Regional Mortgage Services Inc., au coin de l’avenue Hellems et rue Young à Welland. Le propriétaire de terrains et d’entreprises, Gary Neumann, s’est montré incroyablement généreux en permettant aux personnes âgées de son quartier d’utiliser son bien comme lieu d’implantation du projet Jardin Communautaire.               Ce projet ne serait pas possible sans la ville de Welland qui, avec l’aide de ce dernier, aidera à l’installation de tous les éléments fixes dans le jardin.               Le Jardin Communautaire sera un projet collectif piloté par la SDAC centre-ville Welland, en partenariat avec le Centre de Lancement du conseil scolaire du district catholique de Niagara, qui nous aidera à construire et à installer les éléments fixes du jardin. Aux côtés de l’enseignant Joseph Sciarra, deux classes d’élèves de la neuvième année de l’école secondaire Collège Notre Dame réfléchiront et construiront avec les aînés de notre communauté afin de créer un espace accessible et approprié.               De plus, Renée Delaney de Fermes Petite Tailles (Small Scale Farms) s’est associée au SDAC centre-ville Welland pour ajouter des compétences en matière de jardinage et d’alimentation.               Bien que le projet Jardin Communautaire soit le principal lieu de participation, nous organiserons également des ateliers et des séminaires en partenariat avec des entreprises locales et offrirons des conseils avisés au jardin lui-même. Nous organiserons également un atelier occasionnel directement dans les maisons des personnes âgées locales pour permettre aux personnes qui ne peuvent pas venir au Jardin Communautaire d’y participer.               La participation au projet Jardin Communautaire et à ses programmes est actuellement ouverte à toutes les personnes âgées de la ville de Welland. Des ateliers et des séminaires seront annoncés sur le site Web du SDAC centre-ville Welland et sur les réseaux sociaux dès qu’ils seront disponibles.               En tant d’un jardin communautaire collectif, nous travaillerons à partir du principe suivant : «une récolte pour un, une récolte pour tous», ce qui signifie que les jardiniers partageront sa richesse, avec un excédent de nourriture à donner aux organisations locales ayant besoin de produits frais.               Notre objectif pour le projet Jardin Communautaire est qu’il devienne une source de fierté communautaire, de réconfort, d’amitié et d’engagement collectif bien après la dernière récolte d’automne. Pour de plus amples renseignements, communiquez :SDAC centre-ville Welland Carly EckhardtCoordinatrice Programme Communautaire Courriel: community@downtownwelland.caTel : 289-228-7785

Snacks, Sacks and School Supplies Campaign

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

#SnacksSacksandSchoolSupplies Campaign
Thursday, August 9th – Sunday, August 19th

Welland, ON, August 9th 2018 – The Board of Management of the Welland Downtown Business Improvement Area, in partnership with the City of Welland, is excited to announce that the community-wide #SacksSnacksandSchoolSupplies campaign has begun! School appropriate non-perishable snacks, backpacks, and school supplies are welcomed at the various drop-off sites around Welland until August 19th. Donated items will be collected for The Hope Centre to give away before the school year begins.

With the new school year beginning soon, many families are going back to school shopping. For some families in Welland, the added expenses of new school supplies and snacks are not affordable. In Canada, 1.3 million children live under the poverty line, with 35% of children attending school without the proper school supplies on their first day.

The Welland Downtown BIA, City of Welland, and Hope Centre have come together to launch the #300ChildChallange for the #SacksSnacksandSchoolSupplies campaign for Welland children. We invite you to share in our vision to have enough supplies for 300 children for back to school, and we ask the community to be a part of the solution with this local campaign!

There will be multiple drop-off sites around Welland for community members to donate non-perishable snacks, school supplies and backpacks. Sites include City of Welland Civic Square, the Black Sheep Lounge, Mr. Mikes, and the Welland Community Wellness Complex. Bins will also be available at the St. George Family Day on Sunday, August 19th. Healthy non-perishable snacks for students include whole-grain crackers, dried fruits, oats, applesauce, and granola bars. Donations will be collected until August 19th, and The Hope Centre will distribute them on August 22nd.
