What a year 2020 has been. It is difficult to put words to the past year which served as one of the more challenging in some time. However, during the holiday season it is time to look ahead with hope for the next year.
There has been good news with the COVID-19 vaccines on their way, some light at the end of the tunnel. At the Municipality we are looking forward to new projects that will help serve our community. We know the challenges that our residents can face, as many of us have faced them as well. It is our hope to continue our hard work to make South Dundas an even better place to live.
We encourage you to continue to participate in the community, raise your voice for the issues that are closest to your hearts and help us do what is right for the region.
We thank each of you for your efforts in reducing the impact of the pandemic. While there is still work to be done, it will get better. The holidays are set to look quite different from previous years, but this too can be something hopeful. By protecting ourselves and others, we can give each other the gift of a recovering community, sooner. Our commitment to the health of our neighbours is what the holiday spirit is all about.
On behalf of Council and staff, I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Stay safe.
Steven Byvelds, Mayor
Municipality of South Dundas
