“Flowers don’t worry about how they’re going to bloom. They just open up and turn toward the light and that makes them beautiful.”
Author: Gustav Mahler
Even in these days, with wearing a mask, a smile can go a long way and be a highlight to your day and others.

New Horizons Thrift Store
The Welcome Inn is looking forward to the grand reopening of New Horizons Thrift Store.
Our goal is to reopen the store in the coming year, adding more community space and a lovely café.
The store has been packed up and we are just waiting to re-open the store in a new location. We are currently not able to take donations until we obtain our new location.
We are proud to announce that our online auction will be taking place on April 14-19th. All proceeds from this online art auction will support our local food bank.
This auction celebrates art and artists while providing much needed funds for our food bank program.

In honour of Volunteer Appreciation month, Welcome Inn would like to thank ALL of our volunteers – those who have regularly volunteered before the pandemic, and those who have jumped in during this last year. Your hard work, commitment, and compassion changes all of us and helps our community to SHINE. Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. We vote at election time, but when we volunteer, we vote every day about the kind of community we want to live in.
To each of our volunteers………THANK YOU
