    Dollar Day returns to Niagara Falls

    From Niagara This Week:

    It all started with a cough that wouldn’t go away for Angela Morris.

    “They started thinking I had pneumonia,” Morris, a Grade 9 student at Stamford Collegiate Secondary School says.

    As it turns out, doctors at Niagara Health’s St. Catharines site found it was something completely different — and life changing — for the Niagara Falls teen. It was discovered she had cystic fibrosis or CF for short…

    Since being diagnosed last year, Morris has had to make a few changes in her life.

    “I can’t sleep over a friends’ houses. I can’t play sports,” she says.

    But according to Nancy Clayton, vice-president of CFC’s Niagara chapter, situations like Angela’s can now be avoided.

    Clayton is busy putting together the finishing touches on this year’s Dollar Day, which raises funds for cystic fibrosis research. Niagara Falls residents can get into a 13 different attractions — wax museums, haunted houses and others — on Clifton Hill for just a loonie. This year’s event — the 29th annual — takes place on Jan. 15 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with the exception of the Ripley’s Moving Theatre, which closes at 3 p.m.

    From Niagara This Week:

    Polish off those loonies because Dollar Day at museums in and around Clifton Hill is here again.

    And as it turns out, residents are already chomping at the bit, one of the women organizing the Jan. 13 event says.

    “The phone has already been ringing. People are calling wanting to know the date,” Rosemary Croteau, who handles publicity and is the right hand for organizer Nancy Clayton.

    Now in it’s 25th year, the event allows Niagara Falls residents entry to a selection of Clifton Hill museums and attractions for $1. All proceeds will go to Cystic Fibrosis Canada to be used toward research into the fatal disease.
