NorthumberlandView.ca is Officially Closed as of September 1st, 2016.
Hello Everyone, Chris Pelletier here.
I have some important news to share with you about NorthumberlandView.ca. This is a bittersweet moment for me.
My wife and I have decided to embark on a new adventure and we are moving to Winnipeg. She has accepted a new position in her field and we'll be leaving towards the end of September.
As a result, I have decided to shut down NorthumberlandView.ca as of September 1st. I feel that this date is appropriate because on September 1st, NorthumberlandView.ca will celebrate its ninth anniversary.
I am hopeful that the site will continue and I have begun discussions to find someone to take it over. I have worked way too hard to let NorthumberlandView.ca disappear like breath on a mirror.
This has been an incredibly difficult decision for me but also very easy. It's terrifying but exciting. Kind of a happy melancholy. It will be difficult to leave Northumberland County where I was born, raised and have lived for most of my life.
It's going to be quite a transition for me going from the known of Northumberland to the unknown of Manitoba. I'm doing this on my own terms. I'm not being forced out, or closing for financial reasons; it's my decision. And it's going to be a lot of fun!
I know I have said this before but I do really want to thank everyone out there who has supported me over the past nine years. I wouldn't have been able to do it without you.
It's not like I won't be back to visit and you all know how to reach me so this really isn't goodbye, more like, until the next.
Before I go, I just want to tell you: you were fantastic, absolutely fantastic. And you know what? — So was I!
Thank you and See you later.
