September 12th, young Madeleine Wallace, accompanied by Mayor Dave, spoke about the Mayor's Youth Council.   Madeleine spoke eloquently about MYAC and its objectives - identifying Pelham Youth issues and bringing them to council's attention for action on important issues.   This is a great leadership experience for youth.
Ideally, there is one representative from each class at each school in Pelham.   They hold road clean-up days, an annual skate and pumpkin carving contest at the arena.   They brought in bands for Canada Day celebrated at Harold Black Park.   They also displayed art work during Summerfest, and held movie nights at Peace Park during the summer.
This great bunch of kids raised $300.00 for the United Way, during the year, while having fun. 
It was a pleasure to hear Madeleine speaking about MYAC with such enthusiasm.
Thank you very much Madeleine - Keep up your good work.
