Dig Walkerville Keeps You Up To Date On Walkerville Construction!


Construction has begun in the Walkerville Business District! Members of the Walkerville Business Improvement Area Lindsay Gammon (bump maternity + baby, poppy paperie & gifts) & Chris Ryan (Walkerville Brewery) have formed the Walkerville Communications Committee to provide a united voice for the more than 90 Walkerville businesses during construction. The committee hopes to create a positive message during what is normally a difficult time for a business community.

Collaboration and participation within the community is vital during construction. The moniker "DigWalkerville" was created by the committee to convey the message that, while Walkerville is under construction it is still a vibrant part of the city and open for business.

"DigWalkerville" will be used across social media to act as a conduit for keeping the public apprised of construction updates, special events, promotions and everything Walkerville. With the success of the Walkerville Night Market and the Art Walk & Rock, the committee is confident that taking the unique approach of being proactive and positive will set Walkerville apart from other areas of the city that have encountered construction in the past.

If Your Child Gets an A on Report Card, Head to Antonino's Original Pizza June 26 & 27, 2014


Antonino’s Original Pizza has announced that on the last day of school, “A” students can come in for a free slice of their award winning pizza. On Thursday June 26th, and Friday, June 27th, any student that brings in a current, June 2014 report card showing at least one “A” grade or equivalent will receive a free big slice.

Antonino’s owner, Joe Ciaravino, sums up his reasons for this promotion: “My parents grew up poor farmers in Sicily. They didn’t get to go to school much past the primary grades, so they pushed me to get a good education and strive for good grades. This is our way of paying them back by rewarding academic achievement.”

This offer is valid on Thursday, June 26th and Friday, June 27th only and is limited to one free slice per student.

Miss Via Italia Pageant June 21, 2014

The Miss Via Italia Pageant is back for the 2014 Italian Carrousel of Nations Festival on Saturday, June 21 starting at 9 p.m. on Erie Street. This year, the pageant is welcoming 10 women of Italian descent, aged 16-25, to the main stage across from St. Angela Merici Church.

 The pageant, sponsored by FIAT, will be giving away hundreds of dollars’ worth of prizes to the women, including a $500 cash prize for the winner, $200 for the runner up and swag bags for all the girls who compete. FIAT will be providing the girls transportation to the pageant, so they will be arriving in style.
I am pleased to be judging the contest along with CTV's Jim Crichton, Craig Pearson and Anna Cabrera from the Windsor Star and Adelina Sisti-DeBlasis (The first Miss Via Italia winner from 1988 or 1989).
This year, the people of Windsor are encouraged to vote for their favourite contestant on Facebook for a new award called The People’s Choice.
Hope to see everyone out at the Carrousel villages this weekend!

Relay For Life Windsor & LaSalle June 20, 2014

The 2014 Relay for Life Windsor/LaSalle is set to begin with an inspirational roar. Six-year old, two-time brain cancer survivor, Abbey (from Relay For Life team Abbey’s Army) will sing Katy Perry’s Roar the song that motivated her during her radiation treatments. This makes her the youngest survivor to take the stage during a Windsor/LaSalle Opening Ceremony. Relay for Life takes place on Friday, June 20 at 7p.m. at the Vollmer Cultural and Recreation Complex in LaSalle.

Along with Abbey, 68 teams will take turns walking or running around a track overnight. Participants are current and former cancer patients (aka Survivors), family, friends, hospitals, neighbors, businesses, faith-based and civic organizations. Their purpose is to eradicate all forms of cancer and celebrate life.

Following the opening ceremony is the Survivor’s Victory Lap, where all cancer survivors are invited to walk the first inspirational lap. We will have a Luminary ceremony at 10:00 p.m. and a Fight Back ceremony at 3:00am. The remainder of the Relay will be filled with special performances, games, food and music. For additional fun, this year’s theme, Relay through the Decades invites participants to bring items from different decade to relive memories and bring each decade’s unique culture to the Relay. The event concludes on Saturday June 21 at 7 a.m.

“A cancer diagnosis can be devastating. It’s hard on family, physically painful and leaves you with more questions than answers. I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a form of cancer in the blood in 2009 and have been in treatment off and on since then and have more ahead of me. When I heard about the Relay For Life, I was intrigued, it sounds exciting, hopeful and I can’t wait to be a part of it! I just registered for my first Survivor’s Victory Lap and I’ll be playing some great tunes onstage to go with this year’s theme Relay Through the Decades. If you haven’t yet, grab a team, and register! I’ll see you there!” said Thorald Findlay (aka DJThor Windsor).

Relay for Life invites everyone from the Windsor/LaSalle area to get involved. To date, 68 teams are registered with about 600 participants who have fundraised roughly $69,000 so far. Donations are given to the Canadian Cancer Society and benefit cancer research and programs. To register, join a team or donate, go online to Another way to lend support is to buy a virtual Luminary to be displayed on the Relay for Life Facebook page and/or an actual Luminary lit during the luminary ceremony. Luminary bags are $5 each and available at the event.

The Canadian Cancer Society is a national, community-based organization of volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer.
