Editorial: Ambassadors program a novel idea

Kudos to the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, members of the Shaw Guild, particularly Laurie Harley and Cheryl Morris, and Couns. Wendy Cheropita and Gary Burroughs for working to establish an ambassadors program to meet and greet people who visit Old Town – and to remind them about COVID-19 safety protocols.

For now it is just a pilot project, but we hope it proves successful and is carried on past Sept. 8.

In the COVID era, it is a simple but important way to encourage people to maintain masking, distancing and other safety measures. 

Longer term it is the sort of program that can help boost NOTL and promote its attractions and amenities to visitors.  

It is inspiring – though not surprising – that already about 30 people have volunteered to be “a friendly face to welcome visitors to our beautiful community,” as Cheropita noted.

We look forward to seeing the ambassadors out on the street starting next week.
