Editorial: Nominations pour in! Mag on the way!

Wow! Since last week’s paper The Lake Report has received more than 500 nominations for the NOTL’s Choice Awards.

Thanks NOTL!

The next step after nominations close in January is compiling the nominees for a town-wide vote, and after that hosting an awards ceremony.

The Lake Report is looking for dedicated people to help plan the event, and for eight corporate sponsors who would like to help us make it happen.

We’ve put together a pamphlet that explains what we’re asking for, what we need it for, and why it will benefit the entire community. Those who wish to check out the pamphlet may stop by our office at 496 Mississagua St. and pick one up.

We’re also looking for venues to donate space for the night.

On another note, we’re extremely excited to announce our special winter magazine comes out on Tuesday, Dec. 3. Similar to our extremely well-received premiere magazine released in the summer, the second issue of “NOTL: A Guide for Distinguised Explorers” will focus on Niagara-on-the-Lake sights, attractions, food, wine and everything in between – but this time with a winter theme for 2019/2020. Read about it on Page 20.

Because the magazine is focused on visitors, we will not be mailing a free copy to each household. Copies will be distributed to hotels, B&Bs, numerous businesses around town. However, it is chock full of great stories, stellar photography and spectacular advertisements promoting the best of NOTL. Those who wish to pick one up can do so at our office while quantities last.

Now, back to the nominations.

To nominate a business, organization or professional individual, please visit and go to the nominations page. From there you will be linked to our online survey, which can be taken as many times as needed to get all of your favourites in the running.

Don’t wait to submit — nominations close Jan. 30, 2020.
