Last Wednesday was World Autism Day and Goderich marked the occasion by raising an autism awareness flag in front of town hall.

Mayor Deb Shewfelt pointed out autism is a growing presence in our communities and a Goderich couple just recently found out their child has autism.

Shewfelt believes it’s important to remind people of the issue and that many people are struggling with it.

Joining Mayor Shewfelt and Deputy Mayor John Grace for the flag-raising, were staff members Andrea Lobb and Tom Crawford and Goderich resident John MacKenzie who’s child has autism.
