The 12 Days of Positivity in Chatham-Kent is into the home stretch – and there is definitely a positive vibe happening around the community, organizers say.The third annual free community dinner organized by Chatham’s Breakfast House & Grille Churrascaria at its Armoury banquet hall attracted another big crowd on Monday.“I love seeing everybody from the community coming in here with smiles on their face,” said Matt Harlick, a partner in Chatham Breakfast House & Grille. “Everybody’s excited to just come in and enjoy a meal and just have some camaraderie between the community.”He said having 12 days of positivity “gives a light at the end of the tunnel” in a day and age when there is a lot of negativity.“We feel it in ourselves when we see all these positive faces and smiles,” added Brian Machado, a partner in the business.He gave credit to Pie-Zano’s Pizza and Community Living for helping make the event a success by providing pizza and desserts, as well as Just Grin Productions, which was taking free photos of participants.Machado said doing things to help make your community better is part of what being a small business owner is all about.Ginny and Brian Steptoe of Chatham, who were among the local residents who enjoyed the free lunch, are big supporters this local initiative.“The 12 days are a great way to spread positivity in Chatham-Kent,” Ginny Steptoe said. “We hope everybody can get on board.”When asked what they do to be positive, Brian Steptoe mentioned helping out their neighbours, friends and family, “We just try to smile and be the best people we can be,” he said.Jason King, co-ordinator of the 12 Days of Positivity, said this year’s campaign has been great across the community with many different people and groups getting involved.“Positivity is growing in Chatham-Kent,” he [email protected]@Chathamnews

Jett Villarin, SJ announced the news on Monday after team management and the Thai coach met several times the past week.ADVERTISEMENT “The meetings have not been in vain since a number of valid concerns were raised and will be addressed systematically by the Ateneo de Manila. One important common denominator in these gatherings is what I saw to be the shared desire of both Coach Tai and the Lady Eagles to apply themselves wholeheartedly to representing our school and doing their best to play for the championship. And to achieve this, they know that they have to make the needed adjustments and mutual accommodation in their preparations,” he said in a statement.“In view of all this, I am happy to announce that both Coach Tai and the Ateneo Women’s Team will continue to work together to make this season’s campaign successful.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSBoxers Pacquiao, Petecio torchbearers for SEA Games opening Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Villarin, however, has put his foot down to resolve the issue and get the team’s act straightened up as Ateneo prepares for its campaign in the coming UAAP Season 80.Villarin also called for unity as the Lady Eagles try to put the issue behind.“I know that much has been said in social media about our coach and our Lady Eagles. With people taking sides, no one has emerged from all this unscathed. I request everyone to be more careful with their social comments, to be more understanding of how terribly painful it must be for the coach and especially the women to have their character impugned in public based on speculation. The team’s concerns, I must say, are legitimate, and so we will address these moving forward,” he said.Villarin has then tasked the school’s Athletics Office to take part in addressing the said issues.“I am asking the Athletics Office to assist in addressing these concerns and to help in the healing process,” he ended.ADVERTISEMENT PSL imposes 1-year ban, P50,000 fine on Soltones after playing in PVL All-Star Game Palace: Robredo back to ‘groping with a blind vision’ View comments Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
