Crime Stoppers Guelph Wellington Day

KENILWORTH – Wellington North is proclaiming Jan. 8 as Crime Stoppers Guelph Wellington Day.

On Dec. 2, Sarah Bowers-Peter, Program Coordinator, Crime Stoppers Guelph Wellington wrote to council making the request.

Her letter notes January is Crime Stoppers month and as we recognize this awareness initiative with a flag raising in Mount Forest (Wellington North) we would ask that the township council consider naming Jan. 8 Crime Stoppers Guelph Wellington Day.

“This will enhance the message we are putting forth, – Creating Partnerships Against Crime.

“Crime Stoppers Guelph Wellington has been active in the community since 1988 with more than $37.5 million in drugs, personal property and cash recovered as a result of our anonymous tipsters and their confidential information. We have enjoyed support from the Township of Wellington North and appreciate the consideration you are giving this request.”

Additionally, she  hoped members of council are able to join us for this flag raising in front of the Mount Forest Museum & Archives.

The plan is to have a flag raising at 3pm on Jan. 8.

Council adopted the request with no discussion.
