North Dundas Christmas Fund News Release

Snow Suits and Christmas Food Baskets

As Christmas and cold weather loom in front of us, the North Dundas Christmas Fund is once again gathering funds to purchase snows suits for children aged 13 and under and Christmas Food Baskets for residents in need within the community. In 2016, 150 suits and 200 baskets were distributed.

“It requires generous hearts from a caring community to make these funds available” said Bob Weagant chair of the group. “Snow suits cost an average of $40 each and the cost of food never goes down so the need is real”.

Cheques can be mailed to: North Dundas Christmas Fund, Box 27, South Mountain, Ontario, K0E 1W0 or dropped off at The Bank of Nova Scotia in both South Mountain and Chesterville. The Scotia Bank partners the campaign with generous donations.

If you or someone you are aware of is in need of a hamper or snowsuit then please call either the House of Lazarus at 613-989-3838 or Community Food Share (the Food Bank) at 613-774-0188 to register for the program.

South Nation Conservation — Flood Watch

WATERSHED CONDITIONS – FLOOD WATCH

October 30, 2017                            Time: 11:00am

The purpose of this bulletin is to provide information regarding the forecasted weather and the potential of flooding throughout the South Nation Conservation jurisdiction.

Rain gauges within the region have recorded between 50 and 100mm since October 29, 2017.  Environment Canada is forecasting an additional 20mm of rainfall for today and an additional 10 to 15mm for the remainder of the week.

Water levels are expected to increase, which may cause flooding in low lying areas. In addition, some access roads may need to be closed due to flooding.  There is also potential for blocked storm drains, catch basins and culverts which may also cause localized flooding.

Residents are advised to stay away from rivers as the forecasted weather may rapidly increase river flows, and cause slippery river banks.  Parents are encouraged to explain these dangers to their children.

SNC will continue to monitor the water levels and weather forecasts as part of the Flood Forecasting and Warning Program and will provide updates as conditions change.

SNC encourages the public to visit www.nation.on.ca and to also provide feedback with respect to changes in water related conditions in their local areas. All feedback can be sent to waterwatch@nation.on.ca; posted on our Facebook, or Tweet us your photos.

For more information, please contact Michael Jones at 1-877-984-2948 ext. 310 or Omar Kana’n ext. 309

This statement is in effect until Friday, November 3, 2017
