A late spring did not dampen the enthusiasm at the three Spring Open Forums which wrapped up last week. More than 100 RAHB members attended the three events, which visited Dunnville, Caledonia and Grimsby. Local presenters included Haldimand OPP Constable Rod LeClair, and town of Grimsby Deputy-Mayor, Kevin Ritchie and acting Director of Planning for Grimsby, Walter Basic.
