Diane and the kids spent the night at the Kitchener Ranges Game and in Apperson Insurance Private box. They had a great view of the Kitchener Rangers scoring a goal and the local support of everyone from the area throwing Teddy Bears and stuffed animals onto the rink. Those gifts will be delivered to deserving kids throughout the region.

It was quite a sight. Six thousand local students, yes 6000… filled The Aud today for the fourth We Day to hit the area. Featured speakers included Martin Luther King III. One of our kids went to the event and she told me she had an amazing time!

If you are looking to enjoy more of the historic old charm of downtown Galt there may be another new walk way coming to that area of the Grand River system. Plans are in the works for a new walk way to be ready for October of this 2012. Some of the flood wall is failing and the city plans on doing some extensive work to make this part of the downtown a nice place to enjoy the sights. For more information check out the link below.
Fall is a wonderful time of year and one of the best ways to spend some time outdoors is hiking along the Grand River Trial. This morning I took my dog “Shiva” out for an hour long walk and she dragged me through some of the prettiest scenery along the grand river. The colors have changes and some of the views were just wonderful. I got some much needed exercise after a great weekend and Shiva got out and did her thing of sniffing, engaging with a couple of dogs we met along the way and enjoying the fresh air.
The Grand River Trail is a 18 kilometre (11 mile) trail that follows the Grand River through lush Carolinian Forest with spectacular river overlooks en route. The Trail runs from Paris to Cambridge and is a great place to spend an afternoon.
