See below: 3211 SANDWICH MEDICAL LABORATORY   Did you know that a Lab opened at 3211 Sandwich Street? The same building as the IDA pharmacy. They do blood work and heart monitor tests and specimen collection. Parking is FREE The wait time is minimal.  Why are you still going downtown for your blood work?

Garage and Car break-Ins

Friends, I received two separate emails from two residents over the past month, one on Bloomfield and the other on King St., stating that there were a few break-ins occurring in the neighbourhood.
