Bower Technical Institute to Host Guest Students

(April 27)-According to a recent government report, the demand for diesel mechanics is expected to increase by 15 percent in the next ten years. There is a growing need for diesel mechanics in the construction, oil, and power industries. Most of the positions pay very well and only require a high school diploma and technical training. Bower Technical Institute in Centerville provides that training.

On May 1, Bower Technical Institute invites you to be a guest student from 9 AM to 2 P.M. After a question-and-answer session about the profession, guest students will observe actual diesel mechanic classes that focus on power trains and engine management systems. Later, guest students can participate in hands-on sessions to experience some of the day-to-day tasks involved in the field.

The event is free, but space is limited. Participants must have a high school diploma or equivalent credential. E-mail Taneisha Hill at thill@bowertech.com to reserve a spot.

Yes, but it has been years. I think there's a new editor now. Let me check.

E-Mail Message

To: All staff
From: Carol Yates
Subject: CCS Conference
Date: 1 June
Attachment: Conference schedule

Dear Staff,

The 12th annual conference of the Caribbean Culinary Society (CCS) will take place here in Jamaica from 16 to 20 July. I have received a request from Chef Regina Tufton, chair of the organising committee, to conduct two workshops. It is an honour to be invited by such an accomplished culinary expert, someone who is also the author of five cookbooks on Caribbean cuisine. More importantly, it is a wonderful opportunity for Yates Restaurant to showcase some of its award-winning delicacies.

The first workshop will focus on cooking techniques inspired by French cuisine. As Assistant Chef Duane Munroe has distinguished himself in this regard, I have asked him to help me with this presentation. The second workshop will address the challenges and rewards of running a food establishment. Since Zavia Pinnock has been doing an outstanding job of managing our restaurant, I have requested her input on the topic.

I encourage each of you to attend one or more conference sessions. Of course, the restaurant must remain open and be well staffed during the conference period. So that I can be sure that we have enough staff on hand during the period of the conference, please let me know by 21 June the day(s) and time(s) of the session(s) you wish to attend. For your convenience, a copy of the conference schedule is attached.

Date: June 1
Subject: Baseball night


You may remember that we recently discussed ideas for an outing for the employees and their families. I think the best idea is to go to a baseball game. I have always enjoyed taking my family to see the Billington Buffaloes, our local team. You might have noticed that several of the photos in my office were taken at the stadium! And since I usually see other staff members at the games, I think this will appeal to most of our group.

Could you please set this up for June 28? I believe it can all be done online if you prefer. By my calculations, we will need 45 tickets in total, but please double-check this number. Also, I would like food to be provided. Let's limit our cost to under $20 per person and make sure the seating is covered just in case the weather is poor. Please send me the details as soon as the tickets are purchased.

GRI Ready for Action

By Antoine Williams

Although considered by many to be the running capital of Ontario, the city of Barrie is also home to several public swimming establishments, including the Galewood Recreation Institute (GRI). The institute boasts two indoor pools, one used for recreational swimming and the other reserved for special programmes, such as swimming lessons and lifeguard certification.

This summer, the institute will add intensive swimming and safety certification classes. "It is our high season," said Herbert Gagnon, institute director. "Our pools are indoors, which allows for swimming all year, but in the summer people naturally have more time for recreation and new activities in general." Summer classes will be offered mornings, afternoons, and evenings. "We hope that we can accommodate everybody's schedule," continued Gagnon. "Our classes aim to serve not just children, but all age ranges and levels of experience." For additional information, please call 905-555-0142 or visit www.galewoodrec.org.

Regal Properties

January 3

Dear District Council Members,

My firm is interested in purchasing the building at 1210 Prince Street. Since this property has been on the market for almost five years, it has fallen into disrepair. Regal Properties is willing to invest what is necessary to udpate the building.

In addition, we would like to convert three of the apartment units in the ground floor facing the street into space for business. However, the property is zoned only for residential use. Would you consider rezoning the property to allow for mixed residential and business use?

New business
Community resident and building manager Carla Phillips spoke to express opposition to the rezoning of 1210 Prince Street under consideration by the council.

The council agreed to consider the zoning issues at their February monthly meeting to give additional residents on Prince Street an opportunity to voice their opinions.

Hello everyone,

I am reaching out to you to determine when we can meet. Since news about the creation of our Business Alliance is generating interest within the community, it is time to create some written materials to promote ourselves.

I would like to spend time at our meeting formulating an action plan for soliciting members. I have attached a draft agenda. It should not take long to coordinate our assignments for speaking to local business owners, but we could probably save meeting time by doing this online before the meeting.

Please send me an e-mail with your availability for the next few weeks. I understand that Sasha Zimmer is out of town until early July, but I still hope we can find a meeting date and time work for everyone.
