3) 150 Facts about Welland - Trivia Program

Nature of the Project Reach
For local Welland residents.
It is the desire of Welland's 150 Committee to instill a deeper understanding of not only Canada's 150th Celebrations but also to reflect upon Welland's role as a community.
Welland's 150 Committee will encourage community participation at the launch event of the 150 day countdown through outreach to local schools (elementary and secondary) as well as various cultural and community groups such as indigenous, francophone, youth, seniors and persons with disabilities. Inclusivity and accessibility will be paramount features of the launch event and the 150-day countdown.
