Elevator first sign of things to come

February at last in Grand Bend! and I am reminded of the big heart and grand spirit of this village.
Although great controversy and vast fundraising has been undertaken, the new public elevator at the beach house at the foot of Main Street is near completion. In this formidable season, it’s a powerful testament to the local economy, and to the service groups that raised the approximate $80,000 to get this first fresh aspect of the beach enhancement underway. Surely it will be completed by the hot summer season that awaits our summer village and the impending onslaught of cottagers and tourists we so love and anticipate. The aged and disabled will soon be equally enabled to view the beach and lake from the upper deck. We all can agree that this will be the first jewel of many planned to enhance and embellish the waterfront experiences we all love to see and be a part of, especially in the dog days of summer.
As I type this letter to the editor, snow is causing tremendous problems around the province, but that signals FUN weather for the winter carnival, celebrating the off season fun and friendship throughout N0M 1T0. Grand Bend will be alive and prospering in opposing weather conditions, but in a very similar spirit as that which the warm summer brings to Main Street Grand Bend.
