Eliminating a common Cornwall myth

Rachelle André wanted to eliminate the commonmyth that there never was anything to do in Cornwall. !erefore she created !ings to do in Cornwall Ontario and SD & G. Pictured is the group’s banner girl, Caydence André


André and her daughter often volunteer with several local organisations.!is in turn has led the duo to take part in several events. “Every summer is "lled with activities,” she said. “We simply love taking part in events. We always end up not having enough time to do everything.” !erefore it came as a surprise to the woman when she was approached time and time again by local residents, complaining that there simply wasn’t anything taking place in their town. “!ere’s always some- thing happening here,” she explained. “It’s simply a matter of knowing.” In the hopes of making these said events known, André took it upon herself to create a Facebook group which would, in essence, be a gateway between happenings and eager citizens. Named !ings to do in Cornwall Ontar- io and SD & G , the six month old group is nearing 3,000 members and is constantly growing. “It’s crazy, we never thought it would garner so much attention,” said the proud woman. “It’s crazy, but in a good way.” !e group follows a strict code of rules, which André enforces with conviction. “We make sure that there isn’t any spam on the page,” she said. Following the immense popularity of her idea, André has created a trusted team in order to help her manage her group. Other members include her husband, Paul André, Chrissy André, Sabdra Cryderman, Louise

Rachelle André is on amission; to destroy the common myth that nothing happens in Cornwall. !e Cornwall native woman has made it her personal mission to educate her fellow city residents in the art of “event partici- pation”. “I was born and raised here in Cornwall,” she explained. “I’ve lived here nearly my whole life, but I had to move to Alberta for a year.!at’s when I realised just howmuch our province and city was beautiful!” !e smiling woman outlined that she sat on a park bench for quite a while upon coming back to her hometown. “It’s ama- zing here!”
