TASTE of FORT ERIE 2015 attracts New Jobs Businesses Building our Local Economy

the idea girl says

One of the great things about the internet is being able to talk to people from all over the world…

Blogging and being part of a “global blogging community” is even better and I’ll tell you why.

Writing about your ideas for your community, and having a bunch of fans read your stories, and tell their friends, families and acquaintances, and then watching them be implemented, is so exciting!

One of the idea’s we blogged was to “introduce” the world to Fort Erie Ontario Canada – not only by blogging on WordPress, and filming videos for our youtube channels about what to do, see and where to eat, but also allowing the “international tourists” to come to our Town of Fort Erie and have a TASTE of our culture, foods and of course to enjoy some shopping!

I didn’t expect to develop a big fan base here, somehow I did. πŸ™‚ Thanks to all of you for sharing my stories, and ideas and putting them to work *wink*.

It’s great to see how people are beginning to LOVE Fort Erie again! It was so sad three years ago when all we saw was ANGER, disappointment and frustration from the community. Now there’s HOPE for a better tomorrow, not only for all the adults, but even the teen’s are realizing that they will have a better tomorrow if they only believe in themselves.

We are also teaching the younger generation (before they become teens and start thinking about what kind of career they might want to have.) that things can change when you believe in yourself, and in the people around you…

Taste of Fort Erie was fantastic! Our favorite Rock n Roll Music, the Arts, Dance, Drawing, Fun & Games, Food!

They did it all on ONE very SMALL street! – Jarvis ST!

Bridgeburg District is coming ALIVE again.. In baby steps! πŸ™‚

Thanks to all the sponsors and people that made it happen. You made me and thousands of my readers smile…. πŸ™‚

Fort Erie Ridgeway Crystal Beach Ontario Canada Community Luncheons Christmas 2015 Dinner Schedules

Fort Erie Ridgeway Crystal Beach Community Luncheons Christmas Dinners

the idea girl says
I’ve asked Mary Anne from Bridges what the schedules are for the FREE community luncheons held every Saturday here in Fort Erie Ontario Canada.

I’ve noted them on my static page that shows you maps of their locations, and pictures of what the churches look like.

The Salvation Army has a sign up for Christmas Dinner for Singles in Fort Erie. For Two or more, families, they are giving out Christmas Vouchers, they only have so many sign up dates for it.

St Vincents does one too, you’ll have to check the store on Jarvis Street for it’s details. You can either sign up with one or the other for a Christmas Meal/Voucher.

Thanks to those of you who donate your time, energy and money to help our local food bank drives, and meals, we really appreciate all that you do!

Please support any of the stores that HELP with the FOOD BANK drives, and luncheons. We help them, they help your local community people!

TREES SNAP, WAVES 7 FEET HIGH HITS Fort Erie’s – Lake ERie, Crystal Beach and OLD Fort Erie – The WEATHER NETWORK TEAM

the idea girl says

oct 29 2015
high winds over 100 km hitting fort erie, crystal beach, ridgeway ontario canada

lake erie’s 7 feet high waves are crashing and flooding the shores.

the powers out in places on dominion rd, to nigh rd due to a transformer being knocked down with a tree

that snapped in half from the wind.

It might be back up now! (later in the afternoon)

Harry & I headed out to the Palmwood BEACH area along crystal beach, we spotted some of THE WEATHER NETWORK camera’s crews filming and shooting pics of guys trying to surf the big 7 foot high waves in over 100 km winds

I got out and took some selfies, and pictures of tree’s that snapped in half due to the wind storm.

I uploaded those on my webpages on THE WEATHER NETWORK Β it should be showing in the next 24 hours.

Harry lost his favorite hat and the weather network guy was filming in our direction, so not sure if he caught me having a temper tantrum yelling at harry to get away from the crashing waves, (his hat flew across 20 feet right into the Lake’s big waves LOL) he was TICKED!!! lol

I was like YAH!!!! arm up in the air, hooray for the universe, I’ve tried to throw that old 15 years old holy hat out in the garbage for years, finally the universe did it. LOL

poor harry he’s lost without his hat, one less argument for us! (now to work on those 25 holes jeans he’s got! lol)
