News from Community Voices of Fort Erie, a citizens group dedicated to protecting and preserving the Waverly shoreline area

Posted December 1oth, 2019 on Niagara At Large

A Brief Foreword from NAL’s Doug Draper –

Join the citizens effort to protect and preserve the Waverly Beach area from wrongly placed urban development.

This nice book has been published just in time for the Holiday Season and also comes at a time when the Fort Erie-based citizens group, Voices of Fort Erie, continues its effort to protect a Waverly Beach and Woods area that is full of history and natural beauty from urban development that can and should go somewhere else.

Consider buying a copy of this book and do what you can to support the efforts of this group of citizens and others across Niagara to save what is left of our region’s  most precious green places from the word kind of urban sprawl.

We can grow and prosper in smart ways that don’t destroy forever what we have left of our region’s natural heritage.

Now here is the news about this new book from Community Voices of Fort Erie –

The “Bumpity Bump”, the old Waverly Hotel, and the “Brickplace” – these are a few of the memories shared by local residents in a new book entitled, MOMENTS IN TIME: STORIES OF WAVERLY AND ERIE BEACH.

The book, compiled by Community Voices of Fort Erie, Inc., contains personal stories, as well as photographs that depict the history and beauty of the area.

The historical photos highlight the heydays of the Erie Beach Amusement Park and the ruins that remain as a testament to this era. There are also pictures of the natural beauty that makes this place so special.

In addition, there are photos of the construction of this portion of the Friendship Trail, as well as the incredible destruction it has suffered as a result of the recent Halloween storm.

With the holidays fast approaching, the book will make a perfect gift for friends or family members who enjoy this popular place.  Copies are available for sale through members of Community Voices of Fort Erie, Inc. or by emailing
