The historic trestle bridge on the Georgian Trail by the Town Hall was renamed The Bridge of Kindness for one year. This renaming is a part of T-C Rotary’s Community Kindness Challenge initiative, and it received support from the Georgian Cycle and Ski Trail Association, Beaver Valley Outreach and Blue Mountains Chamber of Commerce. The Blue Mountains Council approved the temporary name change on October 4th. Mayor Soever will be attending the ceremony and cutting the ribbon to open The Bridge of Kindness which will have new Kindness banners flying at both ends. The ceremony was held at Town Hall Park and included a greetings and a water blessing and teachings from a Traditional Anishinaabe Grandmother, music, the first TCR Community Kindness awards to several local residents, and the ribbon cutting.

Local students have been busy the past couple of months drawing what kindness means to them. Later in November, we will announce the student winners from BVCS and GBCS whose kindness artwork has been selected for a 2022 Kindness Calendar and greeting card sets. At that time, we will also provide information about how you can get your own calendar and greeting cards.
