    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    There’s a new leadership structure at the Niagara Parks Commission.

    NPC chairwoman Janice Thomson announced Friday that Reegan McCullough will begin his tenure as chief executive officer of the provincial agency, effective Nov. 7.

    McCullough is currently the executive director of Oil Sands Community Alliance in Alberta. Prior to that, he served as assistant Deputy Minister of Tourism, Parks and Recreation for Alberta.

    “Reegan’s exceptional experience in executive management positions within both the public and private sector, focused on large scale operations, strategic policy and regulatory development, capital construction and financial accountability, make him the ideal candidate to assume the responsibilities of CEO,” Thomson said.

    Making memories on Family Day in Niagara Falls

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Niagara – It’s not so much what you do on Family Day, it’s more about having fun and spending time with all those who are so important in your life.

    Mario DeVellis was planning to spend the day at home just relaxing, but his son, grandson and son-in-law had a better idea. They convinced him to go along while they enjoyed some free family skating at the Gale Centre.

    “Winter is very long so it’s really nice to have this Family Day,” said DeVellis. “It gives people a bit of a holiday, especially people who like winter sports like skating, skiing and snowboarding. I think it’s wonderful and I’m all for it. I hope that everybody enjoyed their long weekend.”

    Family Day is the third Monday of February. It’s observed as a public (or statutory) holiday in the three Canadian provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Ontario.
