pile of blankets is growing … let’s collect more for the homeless

If you have blankets taking up space in the back of your linen closet, or under a bed, or otherwise not needed by you and your family, pls consider donating them.  A wonderful young woman from Newboro is spearheading a Christmas drive for the Kingston area homeless men and women.

You can add to the blankets on my front porch at 15 Rideau St, Westport or drop them at St Paul’s Anglican Church tomorrow and next Sunday.  Our goal is to collect 60 blankets.

Thank you for your consideration.

It will be an especially scaaaary night in the village this Hallowe’en

Thanks to the many people who have decorated their haunted houses with ghouls, ghosts, witches and our very own Game Of Thrones!!!!  Rain or shine – the kids and parents will be out later today to ‘trick or treat’.  Have fun finding these outstanding haunted houses.

Please wear bright clothing and drive carefully and watch out for our children.  Be safe everyone.

Emergency Management Training

The Village recently put a call out to the community for volunteers to bolster their ranks during an emergency.  To assist the Westport Emergency Operations Centre, support is needed in three areas – note taking (scribe), canvassing residences and setting up reception centres.  Several people responded to the call, including all members of Council.  Training was provided in the morning of October 28 by Mayor Robin Jones, Councillor Barry Card and Alison Tutak, Director of Social Services for the United Counties of Leeds & Grenville.   A full scenario exercise involving all of the students occurred in the afternoon, which gave the students an opportunity to apply what they had learned.  Many thanks from all members of Council to those who stepped up.  Your commitment will provide much needed support during an emergency.
