Thorold Age-Friendly Committee launches free calendar

The calendar will be handed out during the Canada Summer Games; 'The committee hopes to distribute the calendars to visitors as a reminder of the time they spent in Thorold'

The Thorold Age-Friendly Committee has put together a free 2023 calendar called ‘Thorold: A Community For All Ages,’ in an effort to promote the city.

The chair of the committee, Jean D’Amelio Swyer, was on hand at Tuesday’s city council meeting to present the calendar to council members.

“The calendar depicts the many facets of living in the Thorold community, highlighting active living for all ages,” she said during her presentation. “Thorold is compromised of both urban and rural hubs, all with a home town friendliness.”

The giveaway calendar will be distributed during the Canada Games this summer.

“The committee hopes to distribute the calendars to visitors who will be attending the Games as a reminder of the time they spent in Thorold,” D’Amelio-Swyer said.

Councillors applauded D’Amelio-Swyer for the effort she has put into the endeavour.

“She’s done an excellent job over the last years regarding the committee,” said councillor Fred Neale. “This is a coup de grâce for you, Jean. It was hard work, but I think it was worth the effort.”

Calendars will be available to both visitors and residents of Thorold at the Canada Games 13 for 13 Festival in the Battle of Beaverdams Park on August 9, at the free swim and movie night on August 27, at the Lock 7 Tourist Information Centre, the Ontario Paper Thorold Seniors Centre, Thorold City Hall, and at other venues during the year.
