A few years ago, stay at home moms made up a large part of our volunteer pool. Now, many households need two incomes to function.

You see the issue. The demand for volunteers increases while the availability of volunteers decreases. Adding to the issue, is that people sign their kids up for s...
Quality of Life Survey Results in New Projects

What's Up Around Oxbow
I love the Oxbow Herald; it is such a well done local paper. In just this issue alone, (Monday, February 6, 2012) there are features about the Southeast Starletts, a synchonized skating team, a history page going back 100 years, a story about a local lottery winner, and tons (or should I say tonnes?) of photos about the puppet show held at the Expressway Family Centre, a feature on the Lightning Project, and articles of regional interest, I could go on.
