Today’s Daily Challenge, Friday Jun. 24, 2011:
Connect to your community and learn one bit of trivia aboutyour city or town.
Why it matters: As people move from place to place, they shed attachments to communities. Knowing a bit about the history of your community will increase your bonds to it and help you feel more connected to your neighbors. It may even help you feel more civically engaged the next time you decide whether or not to take the time to vote on a referendum or attend a town meeting.
Fun Fact: Entire countries sometimes decide to go by a new name. For example, Japan was once Nippon, Belize used to answer to the name of British Honduras, and Thailand used to be called Siam.

Jone K. replied: Great passion! Canada, eh? Got hockey?
Michelle L. replied: I love going to spencer creek for hikes and to take pics! It’s so nice there!
Christina M. replied: I always loved Dundas, at one point, before you were born we even looked into moving to Dundas but settled on Ancaster. (This is my Mom… we do the Daily Challenge together!)
Nikki S. replied: @Jone K. Oh, yeah, we have hockey… Dundas was actually Kraft Hockeyville, 2010 (potential for another yearly festival eh?)… we won a bunch of money to fix up the Arena!
@Michelle L I know… my Hubby and I even go crick-walking… we out on our water shoes and get in! There are some really deep spots… awesome for a really hot & humid day. It’s too deep & fast right now, though… we tried last night, but almost got washed down stream! So, we thought better of it… though we did stop to imagine the headlines in the Dundas News:)
