In this month's (April 2022) issue of our community newspaper, the Lowertown Echo, two of our neighbors have published articles.

Nadia Stuewer, writing with Kelly Butler, introduces several small businesses that managed to make it through two years of lockdowns and other COVID-related restrictions, and hope for a summer that might finally bring a return to business as usual.

Giancarlo Cerquozzi writes about Dillon Orr, a Franco-Ontarian stage director who received the 2021 Pauline McGibbon Award: an award, established in 1981 and honoring former Lieutenant Governor Pauline McGibbon, that is presented annually to a member of Ontario's theater community.

Thank you both for these great contributions to our much cherished community newspaper!
