Nelson has the right style

It is great to live in a healthy and vibrant community. Our well balanced age demographic and influx of new residents are examples of this. There is something special about Nelson and as the new residents’ survey shows, it has a lot to do with lifestyle.

I moved here 20 years ago and though it has become a little more crowded, I am happy to see the town has retained that intrinsic something that makes this place unique.

A big part of that, in my eyes, is the absence of many of the big corporate names that are found in just about every other town of this size. While me and my kids lament not having a movie theatre, I do not want and they do not need McDonald’s or Tim Hortons.

How many of you caught the free outdoor movies in Lakeside Park on Sunday evenings this summer? My family would get a nice healthy meal from the Lakeside concession, pull up a blanket in front of the screen, and enjoy. A real green drive-in!

Nelson is full of style. Incorporate that into your lifestyle.
