Let’s start with celebrating International Woman’s Day with my beautiful daughter Adelaide (pictured above). It was a great night celebrating woman in our great city! Lots of entrepreneurs and startup businesses on display with an inspirational message from Ginger Grant! One of the slides from her talk I took a picture of here which I really liked:
How about the basketball OFSAA winners from Bishop Mac high school ! They came home from Timmins so the parents and I greeted them with cheers when the bus rolled in! Way to go guys! Guelph is proud of you!
It was my first time attending and I was really impressed! Lots of good information available! One of the booths had an Innovation Guelph client (Angela Liu) who has developed a really unique product to wear that connects people with outside help but does much much more. She started Smart Home Health. Check it out: http://www.ezhealthcoach.com
Now let’s go celebrate Sikhism with students from the University of Guelph! It was a good showing with lots of sudents coming by to learn more about being a Sikh and having the opportunity to Turban Up! They wouldn’t let me say no, but I’ve always wanted to try one on anyways so I was honoured to have two students put a traditionally wrapped turban on me!
Their campus group has many members and was very welcoming to everyone that stopped by their booths to help break down barriers, misunderstandings and give answers on their beliefs.
Let’s start with Grosche Tea & Coffee Shop!
A wonderful team working here folks! They are joining other Guelph businesses (like Flow Office Wisdom) as a business paying a living wage along with being a B-Corp! They’re located right on Wyndham Street north. I tried out their tea (they have lots to choose from) and it was great!
Let’s thank Daniel Moore now! He retired from being the director of Guelph & Wellington Children and Family Services. There were so many people there to thank him for his leadership and devotion to children and families! A great job he did for our city!
Their grand opening was fantastic! More jobs and more choice for our community which helps our economy! There was a long lineup of people trying out their burritos in support of the United Way today! Thank you for giving back to those in need! Some happy customers!
I’d like to thank the students of Conestoga College today from the Integrated Marketing & Communications program! They, along with Zehrs and other sponsors stepped up today at the Imperial and Paisley Zehrs with a BBQ to raise funds for the Special Olympics!
Let’s end this looooong blog post with more great Guelph news! More stats released yesterday continue to show Guelph having a great economy with the lowest unemployment in Canada at 3.9%! We had great coverage on CTV here: (copy and paste) http://kitchener.ctvnews.ca/mobile/video?binId=1.1147261
