RE: Municipality of Callander Launches Campaign to Remind Drivers to “Take it Slow.”

Callander, Ontario — The Municipality of Callander has launched a new campaign called Take It Slow For Callander, to remind drivers to mind their speed while driving through Callander’s local streets.

“Spring is here and we’re all looking forward to the warmer weather”, said Rob Noon, Mayor of Callander. “This means we’ll all want to get out and enjoy the parks and beaches. We can see it already — more kids are out playing. More cyclists are using the roads. The streets are busier with folks walking and jogging. As we prepare for the summer season — and the many activities we have planned — we’re launching this awareness campaign to remind the community to mind their speed and take it slow for Callander”.

Callander’s seasonal activities begin on May 20th with the opening of Moose on the Loose at Centennial Park, FunFest on June 24th, and Sirens in the Park in August. The Municipality expects large turn-outs for these events, based on the success of this year’s Easter Egg Hunt which attracted over 500 kids.

The Take it Slow for Callander campaign will run for the month of May, with the Municipality sharing more “take it slow” reminders on their social media pages.
