Be Safe This Halloween

pumpkinPumpkins, skeletons, candy and treats, all Halloween fun, but according to officials, it is a good idea to take special precautions before hitting the streets.  According to St. Clair County Sheriff Tim Donnellon trick-or-treaters should always be dressed in reflective clothing and carry a flashlight or maybe a glow stick or necklace.   It is best he says to stay on the sidewalks where available, and remind children to never go into the home of a stranger for their treats.  He also reminds motorists to drive with extra caution during those witching hours of trick-or-treating.  Children are known to be a bit careless in their excitement and could forget about road safety.  And, finally, be sure to check your children’s candy – be sure to throw out any unwrapped, open candy, and if you are suspicious of any of the treats, you can take them to your local law enforcement agency for inspection.

Tourism Sarnia-Lambton Moving To The Douglas G. Keddy Building

tourism sarnia lambtonIt was announced on Wednesday that the Tourism Sarnia-Lambton office is moving from its current location at the Sarnia-Lambton Chamber of Commerce on Christina Street, Sarnia to the Douglas G. Keddy building at 1455 Venetian Blvd, Point Edward. The building, known locally at as the Ontario Travel Information Centre, was named in honour of Douglas G. Keddy, Chairman of the Blue Water Bridge Canada. Tourism Sarnia-Lambton (TSL) will be relocating there in January of 2015.  Tourism Sarnia Lambton chairman, Ken Hoare, revealed the exciting news at the TSL Annual General Meeting Wednesday night at the Lambton Heritage Museum in Lambton Shores. He commended board member Doug Woods for spearheading the project and leading the relocation subcommittee.  Ken Hoare noted, “The board recognizes that a greater visibility for TSL to those travelling through Lambton County will result in more visitor traffic for all of the county’s tourism partners.”  The building will undergo leasehold improvements to outfit the TSL space with offices, a possible retail area, enhanced visitor services and meeting room rental.  Marlene Wood said this of the move, “We are thrilled with this opportunity and with the TSL board of directors’ support and vote of confidence.  We have been working hard to achieve our strategic goals and this move aligns precisely with the next steps needed to develop further sustainable funding and enhance services available to our visitors and our county tourism partners.”  Tourism Sarnia Lambton has fostered a long-term and mutually beneficial relationship with the Sarnia Lambton Chamber of Commerce.  This ongoing and collaborative relationship will be maintained, and in fact grow, as each organization moves forward to achieve its goals.
