Coldest Night of the Year Walkathon


If you can, please help support west-enders Rita Higgins and Joan Mavrinac in their participation in the Coldest Night of the Year Walkathon. Below are emails I received from Joan and Rita, respectively.

Hi Everyone!

My team, West End Walkers, is participating in the Coldest Night of the Year Walkathon onFebruary 20th!

The Coldest Night of the Year is a Canada-wide winter walk-a-thon to support local homeless ministries in each participating city. It's a fun and chilly event, and it provides much-needed support and awareness for homeless organizations that often face a decline in funds during the coldest months of the year. Here in Windsor, we're walking the West end for The Windsor Downtown Mission.

Will you please sponsor me?

Note: The Coldest Night of the Year is operated under the charitable oversight of Blue Sea Philanthropy, (BSP), a registered Canadian charity (public foundation, 819882655RR0001) in partnership with approved registered Canadian charities who serve the hungry, homeless and hurting in communities across Canada.

Car Break-Ins in Bridgeview Neighbourhood


Two residents have notified me that their cars were broken into between January 6th to Janury14th. One lives on the 1100 block of Josephine and the other on Vercheres. I asked if they contacted the police and they said that they did. From the several town halls that we've held over the years, Windsor Police have always emphasized the importance of reporting crime, irrespective of it's nature or relative importance. This information helps them in many ways.

Please be on the lookout and please notify police if you see anything suspicious in your neighbourhood.
