Have your say on Main Street

View from the Strip
By Casey Lessard

We’ve been through this process before, but now that funding is coming through, it seems a good idea for anyone interested in the future of Grand Bend to attend next week’s meeting concerning the Main Street Enhancement Project that is set to be completed by next summer. The meeting is Thursday, August 13 from 4 to 7 p.m. at Grand Bend Public School.
I’ve talked about this in the past, but I think it’s important for you to attend to have your say on a project that will change the face of the Main Street for years to come. The project will likely consist mostly of roadwork and new sidewalks, but there are always surprises.

I actually took two days away from the paper this week, spending time at Angela’s cousin’s camp on the Bruce Peninsula. It was heavenly. Even the busiest small business owner should take a day away during the summer to appreciate the weather and our fortune in living here. Even a day at the Pinery, which we do often in the winter, is a nice respite from the business of staying busy.
