Beaches Living Guide Spring/Summer 2015


letter from the director

Everyone of us has their own way of looking forward to Spring and Summer time. For me, winter is usually not a big deal ? I love it for many reasons. But still I’m happy for the warmer days. In the past 12 years, signing off on this Spring/Summer edition that you are reading is my way to welcome the new season! I know now that I will be able to have some personal time, and enjoy everything nature and our city have to offer.

As you read on, you will learn that our city is really a city of the Great Lakes. Water is life, and sustains all our lives. From our own great lake, Lake Ontario, to the rivers, creeks and ravines around us… everyone and everything is connected with the water. At the very minimum, we live on the fresh water around us. Our taps serve us well, delivering the water to our cups, but we all know it doesn’t make the water.

So many other living creatures are dependent on the same water as us. Their health is our health, and their co-existence is an important part of our healthy environment.

Whether you are a world traveler or come from a very small town, the most common landmark in all places is the water, be that a river, creek or lake… We are all connected through the water around us, and the water beneath the ground.

For all these reasons, we call this issue the Water Issue. We believe the stories in the Water Issue will inspire all of us to be thankful and appreciate the significant value of the water, especially living in a city by the lake.

Water is life, and the reason for life. This is the time, to get out and enjoy our water, and keep it healthy for all and forever.

Happy Spring, Happy Summer!
