The lucky winner will be announced in December. Last year, a similar contest featured gift cards to various local businesses with Dorene Williams being the lucky winner. Williams said the contest allowed her to not only support businesses she was already familiar with, but to also find new businesses in her community. “It was a thrill to be the winner in your 2016 contest,” said Williams. “I have enjoyed getting to know some new businesses as well as keeping in touch with my regular ones. Studio 2 was the receipt that was drawn and I feel they are a great group of ladies in the business of keeping ‘us’ looking our best as we shop about Quinte West. I shared some of my winnings with my family and they were very enthusiastic to shop local.” Mayor Harrison said, “We should always try to shop local first, it supports locally owned businesses which use local resources and employs local workers which feeds back into our community, it’s a win win.” & HOW TO ENTER?

    AD{TS5372569} AD{TS5223933} AD{TS5222360} AD{TS5372435} AD{TS5198074} Fresh appeal at the Quinte West Farmers’ Market From farm to fork, the importance of the farmers’ market helps the community embrace its local farming economy as well as small businesses. You can expect a little bit of everything at the market. Every Wednesday and Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. between May and October, a variety of vendors set up ready to share their products with the community. Each week vendors can differ depending on seasonal produce and crops. From asparagus to tomatoes to fresh berries, you can’t find anything fresher than buying from the very people that grew the produce with their own hands. Visitors will also find locally made maple syrup, baked goods, knitted products, chain jewelry, lavender products, bee producers, preserved jams and jellies, crafters, and pizza dough including some gluten-free products, and so much more. There’s always something new down at the farmer's market, always something exciting to discover and help support. New to the farmers’ market is the exciting addition of VQA wines. “Over the winter, council approved VQA wines to be sold at our market. So we’re seeking VQA wine producers,” said Christine Edwards-Scott, the City of Quinte West’s economic development coordinator.. Partnering with the DBIA, on Sept. 23, the farmers’ market will be participating in the Downtown Trenton’s Fall Market Fest. Vendors will be extending their hours and setting up shop from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., being able to offer their unique and fresh ingredients throughout the day during this special event. The name itself was created in collaboration with the vendors, showcasing the close-knit community the market prides itself on. During the summer, visitors can expect a complete experience at the farmers’ market. “We’re encouraging customers to come down and By Christine Drage for the Trentonian experience our market, it’s very vibrant and the vendors have so much to offer, both in product and knowledge. Also, the market showcases live local entertainment on Wednesdays and Saturdays from June to September.” Community is the key in bringing together Quinte West and the creations that these farmers and small businesses are able to grow and produce. It’s a process from start to finish. From seeding to growing the product, to washing and packaging, it’s a long, always moving process in order for products to show up in your kitchen or in your jewelry collection. It’s the hard effort, the strong passion that these vendors have, that shows the true heart of the community and how it can come together to showcase the incredible hard work and talent of the region. While walking through the farmers’ market, the atmosphere is high energy and filled with delicious smells and infectious laughter. It’s that sense of coming together that brings such significance to the market. Creating that relationship between vendor and customer is made so easily as you browse through the different products that are offered. Regulars come weekly for their produce, while first comers enjoy learning and discovering something new. It’s an adventure every time you arrive at the market, always being able to expect something new and something different. The importance is focused on promoting and pushing shopping local, and you cannot shop any more local than picking up a bunch of asparagus or spinach right downtown Trenton. With the natural spectacle of the river right along Front Street, the farmers’ market offers a natural beauty along with the locally grown and created offerings. Always looking for new vendors, the market encourages farmers and small businesses to take part in helping to bring the community together. Authorized Bradford Dealer Wedding Gifts That Wow!

    AD{TS5372551} , Jumpstart Charity Stays Right in Our Community “As a Canadian Tire Dealer for 20 years now, I am proud to be back in the Trenton market! It means very much to me to be a resident of Trenton, living right here among my valued clientele, and as well, being a proud member of this robust business community right here in Quinte. The sheer benefits of shopping locally and supporting local business-large or small, cannot be overstated! Here at Canadian Tire Trenton, we employ up to 90 personnel. Like you and me, these staff members are consumers and spend their dollars locally as well! It is worth observing that those 90 people employed here don’t include the “spin-off” of other personnel who provide other goods and services to us. These other personnel include electricians, plumbers, cleaners, security, specialized repair, snowplowing, landscaping, and the list goes on and on! All of these “extra” people and services we employ are always local where possible. So again, those dollars spent stay right here in the area, where more local economy is supported and hopefully sustained. If we all endeavor to keep our dollars local, we are ultimately helping OURSELVES! As well community participation is a huge component of what we do here in Trenton. I am very passionate about supporting local fundraising efforts. While every single request cannot be met, we endeavor to be there for a variety of fund raising events as well sponsorships of many local organizations. As well, all money generated here for Canadian Tire’s national JUMPSTART charity stays right here in our community! This means that through Jumpstart, hundreds of local kids have had a chance to get between the lines and play sports. The Military and their fundraising events are important to us and I happily route fundraising resources to our friends at CFB Trenton! None of these things would be possible without our valued clientele shopping right here! Shopping locally, be it Big Box, Ma & Pa, or anywhere in-between, spending your money where you live is a huge win for everyone! I would encourage every consumer to be very cognizant that a local hockey, soccer or baseball team; that figure skater two doors down, or that barbeque or auction to raise money for cancer research was very likely supported by a local business or volunteer who lives and works in your community!” I thank all of our loyal customers and look forward to serving you and our community in the future!

And that’s the focus at the fast food chain, farming their ingredients with care and putting those high standards into their menu items. Locally owned, the A&W located on Dundas Street in Trenton brings the same great taste while continuing with the chain’s focus on hormone- and steroid-free beef patties, and chickens raised without the use of antibiotics. Flavour is never compromised, however, and instead offers a healthier take on the old-fashioned hamburgers and sandwiches. A&W, while moving toward a greater and healthier future, still remains in the heart of what makes the fast food chain excel. “While we try to definitely keep up to date with trends and certain things, we definitely still stick to our TOWNE & COUNTRY LIQUIDATION 10 % MILITARY DISCOUNT Always On Huge Savings On Name Brand Products!

With old school fry baskets, A&W offers a fun and memorable presentation that coincides with their great taste. It’s that atmosphere that the local A&W offers that draws the customers in. Between their staff, the care they put into their food and presentation, and the belief system behind their ingredients, the chain is charging forward in the competitive fast food world with their own spin and take on how quick service should be. They even now offer 24-hour drive through, ensuring no matter the time of day, morning or night, customers will be able to enjoy their favourite burger.

    AD{TS5372573} AD{TS5372572} , Another promising year for the annual Festival on the Bay Just getting into the swing of sunshine and warmer weather, the Trenton Downtown Business Improvement Area (DBIA) puts on the event of the summer. From July 13 to 15 this summer, Festival on the Bay will take place downtown Trenton with a variety of activities for all ages. It’s an event that has taken place in Quinte West for decades, dating back to the year the hurricane swept through Quinte West. That year, after completing construction, the town wanted to celebrate with a sidewalk sale featuring local businesses and open up the street once again. From there, it became a yearly tradition to help celebrate the community. “It brings the community together,” said Lisa Kuypers-Schroedter, the executive director of the DBIA. “It gives a sense of belonging to a community.” With the help of the new state-of-the-art marina, the event also has drawn tourists to the festival to enjoy the activities that take over the town. Face painting and balloon animals are a hit with kids, while acoustic performances line the streets throughout the festival. The street is filled with businesses and vendors hoping to draw customers in, and with the crowds that attend, it’s a fun-filled stroll downtown checking out the deals and the sights. By Christine Drage for the Trentonian On July 14, the Bay of Quinte Cruise will be operating twice during the day, once at 1 p.m. and another evening cruise at 7 p.m. Each will be three hours in length, with the evening cruise enjoying live entertainment, wine tasting, cheese, and desserts. Nearing the end of their time on the water, cruisers will be able to enjoy the booming spectacle of the Mystical Distributing Company Ltd. large-scale firework show. It’s a show that’s boasted to be the largest of its kind. The extravaganza will be bursting with colour, and the sounds of awe will be heard all over town as the community comes together to enjoy the show. The fireworks will take place at 9 p.m. on July 14, and it’s a can’t-be-missed event. July 15, the last day of the event, brings the Dragon Boat Festival back to Quinte West. The exciting event is a must see, and many will be cheering on their favourite team to see who will be able to race across the finish line just in time. The Festival on the Bay event looks to have another successful event, with excitement that will bring the community, and even tourists, coming back year after year for the fun atmosphere and plenty of activities. Between the sidewalk sale that will run the duration of the event, the boat cruise, the fireworks and the dragon boats, it’s bound to be an event that will be remembered for many years to come. Memories will be created as friends and families come together to enjoy what Trenton has to offer. The striving festival will bring old and young out for a full weekend, and you won’t want to miss a single moment of it this July. www.ybuynu.ca Visit our indoor showroom in Trenton (Hwy 2 West of Walmart) or Apply On-Line www.YBuyNu.ca 2005 PT CRUISER CONVERTIBLE 4 cyl, automatic, all power options, 135,000 km.

    AD{TS5372430} AD{TS5372558} , Home away from home With its strong focus on watching a child grow and learning their own interests, Kinder Learning Centre takes a very childoriented approach to its daycare centre. The Trenton location opened in 2010, offering an extended hour daycare centre to the region. With early drop-off and late pick-up available, it’s a wonderful environment families can be comfortable leaving their child in during the day. Parents and guardians never have to worry about missing a moment either, with Kinder’s unique ability to log the daily growth of the children at the centre. Families can download an app that stories from the day are uploaded to, keeping families and friends in touch with the developments of their children. With the rapid growth and changes that can happen in only a day or two, it’s Kinder’s ability to always keep families connected with their child’s progress that helps set them apart. Kinder helps focus primarily on the child’s own interest with their play and teachings. “The classroom is the main environment and the teachers are there to make sure the environment is going well and the children have lots to do and have lots of learning going on at the same time,” said centre manager Danielle Bilous. With programs ranging from infant to toddler and preschool, Kinder is able to offer services to such a wide range for children. It’s able to give parents the peace of mind that while they’re away for the day, their children are in a safe, happy and loving environment. It’s a home away from home atmosphere that Kinder hopes to provide for families and their children. “We follow a lot of elements where there’s a sense of belonging in our classrooms. All of our classrooms are a homey-based feel too, so it make it a comfortable drop off for everybody. By Christine Drage for the Trentonian Everyone is comfortable in the classroom, we encourage the kids to use their words and speak and tell us how they feel, very much like a home base.” Bilous explained. That comfortable atmosphere is what Kinder strives for, wanting every parent and guardian to feel like they’re at home. For the children, it’s ensuring their environment is full of play to fill their days as they grow and develop in those important years. With their extended hours and focus on the children’s interest, Kinder provides a fun and safe place for children to explore and have daily adventures. They encourage the kids to use their play as a way to learn more about themselves and develop as they get older. From a day old until they’re five, the children can create bonds with one another and forge life long memories with the high quality staff at the Kinder Learning Centre.

    AD{TS5199851} , Riverside Music strikes a chord with student lessons By Christine Drage for the Trentonian (613) 394-4891 16 Dundas St W, Trenton, ON K8V 6V9 The focus is on teaching at Riverside Music. When Jason Wryghte purchased Riverside, it was heavily leaning on the retail side of the business. But Wryghte wanted to help revitalize its teaching element. That is where the heart of the business is today, utilizing Wryghte’s 20 years as a teacher who taught instrumental music to many kids within the walls of schools, and bringing that same teaching belief to Riverside. With over 100 private students, and over a 100 group students, Riverside has been able to achieve that goal already. Their teachers are knowledgeable and help work with their students, whether they are children or teachers looking for lessons in an instrument they’re not proficient in. Between the five teaching studios, there’s plenty of space to be able to conduct the half hour lessons that focus on the student’s learning and interests. As for the retail side of the business, it’s about the quality they can bring to their students and the relationships they can create with those instruments. “We’re about beginners and intermediates. We really put quality things into their hands so that they can learn to play, or play better than they already do, and continue to grow in their love for music” Across the 4,000 square foot facility, a community comes together with different groups being able to rent out space. Whether it’s a ukulele group, or something even more unique and different, Riverside has the large space available for members of the community to utilize. The building has transformed from a simple retail store to an entire community experience. Located downtown Trenton, Riverside Music is at the very heart of Quinte West. With its quality instruments, and even higher quality teaching standard, Riverside is able to provide an engaging atmosphere every time a student of customer walks through the doors. It’s here.

    AD{TS5231490} AD{TS5231494} , The clients are the focus at Whitley Insurance By Christine Drage for the Trentonian The full service brokerage company offers more than just insurance and financial services; they offer a sense of security to their clients. No need is too small for Whitley Insurance and Financial Services. They have the backs of their clients, always working for them to make sure they have exactly what they need in order to make the right financial decisions. Since 1949, Whitley Insurance has been insuring the community of Quinte West. “We cover the whole spectrum of insurance. We offer financial services, so mutual funds, life insurance policies. We offer employee benefits to companies,” Louise Clarke, president of Whitley Insurance, said. They offer a little bit of everything that the community might need. Because of their ability to work for the client directly, the staff at Whitley Insurance is able to create the right package for the needs of their clients. They’re able to search through multiple insurance plans in order to find the right price and right coverage that will fit with the financial abilities of those they’re serving. “When we’re going through looking at your policy, whether it’s a homeowner’s policy, a business policy, an auto policy, we can go through and look at 20 different companies to give you the best price, the best coverage,” Clarke explained. With their 24-hour claim service, there’s always a voice at the other end of the phone when something unexpected happens. It’s that kind of service that helps elevate Whitley Insurance. Service comes first in every situation, ensuring their clients are at the focus. Being locally owned and locally staffed, it’s easy to put themselves in the shoes of whomever they might be working with. It’s that sense of community, that relationship they’re able to form, that continues with their dedication to volunteering and donating to a variety of causes. Paul Whitley recently was awarded with the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Quinte West Chamber of Commerce, the company being recognized for its tremendous efforts in giving back to the community. While so much has changed since the first day they opened, from technology to different forms of insurance, one thing has remained the same, and that’s the heart of the company. Whitley Insurance has never strayed from the root of their serviceoriented business, always serving however they can to get the customer the best possible deal. Even after a purchase of the company four years ago, Whitley Insurance never strayed from the core of who they are and what they believe in. “At the heart of every Whitley policy, is our policy service,” Clarke said with pride. Whitley Insurance provides every insurance and financial need anyone walking through the door might need. But it’s that security that they provide, the customer service and the family oriented atmosphere, that has helped shape Whitley Insurance into a company clients can count on.
