Looking forward to the 43rd Annual JCI St. Catharines’ Mayor’s Invitational Grape Stomp in September 2016!
As host of the 43rd Annual JCI St. Catharines’ Mayor’s Invitational Grape Stomp, I have again challenged Niagara’s Mayors to support local charity organizations and help “stomp out poverty” at this year’s Grape Stomp.
Niagara’s Mayors will be working together to help stomp out poverty by collecting non-perishable food items between Sept. 1st and 15th. Members of the public are encouraged to donate and help raise the most food for food banks in each community.
Then on Saturday, Sept. 17, 2016 at 12:00 p.m. at Montebello Park, we will take to the grape barrels for the traditional stomping of the grapes and compete to make the most grape juice. The volume of the stomped grape juice plus the total volume of donations will determine the winner of this year’s Mayor’s Grape Stomp.
Barrels from Community Care of St. Catharines and Thorold have been dropped off at City of St. Catharines City Hall (50 Church Street), please bring in non-perishable food items and help me get a head start on the competition and help our local food bank.
There are 4 barrels at City Hall:
• One is located on the first floor, James St entrance in the Planning and Building Department
• Two are located on the 2nd floor near Citizen’s First
• One is located on the 3rd floor outside the Mayor’s Office
Come out and cheer as I defend my title!
