The Town of Niagara-on- the-Lake is asking people to make some noise on Saturday at 6:30 p.m. to show appreciation for the area’s front-line workers.
The idea came up during an emergency control group meeting last week, said Lauren Kruitbosch, the town’s community engagement co-ordinator.
“We wanted to think of a creative way to thank front-line workers while engaging the whole community. We hope the community will participate,” she said.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for the town to continue our message to stay home while getting the whole town to express their thanks to front-line workers and essential businesses that are putting our lives before their own,” said Lord Mayor Betty Disero.
The NOTL fire department will participate by driving trucks out of the bays and honking their horns and sounding their sirens. Town staff will also be participating from home with their families.
