Crystal Beach Local Food Project is an Advancing Crystal Beach community development initiative. Designed to bring local affordable accessible fresh fruits and vegetables to the tables of our community.
A local businessman suggested a welcome package of Crystal Beach information for new residents. We liked the idea and have followed up on it; collecting information from local Crystal Beach businesses, a map of their locations and a variety of pertinent data about Fort Erie for newcomers. We are putting everything in a "swag bag"; made of reusable, locally sewn colourful bags which we plan to begin distributing in late April 2016
We are in the process of devising ways to promote and attract more cyclists into our village off the Friendship Trail. We will be mounting colourful bicycles near the Trail intersection at Ridgeway Rd, with signs indicating the route to Crystal Beach and what amenities are available in Crystal Beach. We are working in co-operation with the Crystal Beach Beautification Committee to promote their beautiful bicycles theme.
We welcome your input to help plan a "History Discovery Walk" of Crystal Beach. Crystal Beach is rich in historical events, places and people. Imagine in 1919, the first Canadian to parachute out of a plane was in Crystal Beach, into Lake Erie. The parachute was made in the Irwin parachute factory in Fort Erie.
