Check out this recent post by Windsorite.ca news. It looks like the old Price Chopper on Crawford (closed in 2012) may become a new grocery store.

Bridgeview Community Outreach for Youth pasta fundraiser a success!

Friends,

I was able to briefly attend the Bridgeview Community Outreach for Youth fundraiser on Saturday, March 21 at 1636 Tecumseh Rd. W. It was a success where many residents from the neighbourhood attended to show their support. Here are some pictures from the event.







Hidden Treasures moves to 1940 Tecumseh Rd. W.

Friends,

I got an email from the founder of Hidden Treasures, Danielle Meloche. Hidden Treasures is an education and resource centre that was formerly at the corner of Felix Ave and Girardot.

They are having a March Madness sale where all season clothing goes for $1. They are also willing to further help if money is tight right now.

Hope you check it out and spread the word.

Some Upcoming Events



Ambassador Bridge Moving Forward to Twin Span the Bridge

Friends,

Please see these two article links below. There are many more articles surrounding this new development and I encourage you to read up on them. The Ambassador Bridge is looking to twin span and it is crucial that your voices be heard.

Sandwich Towne is the most historical neighbourhood in our region. It is where our community really began and we must protect its heritage, history and livability.
