Joy Silver's History
Joy was born, grew up and went to school in Ernestown Township (named Loyalist in 1998) as did her children. In her 20s she had purchased 3 properties residential, rental and commercial in Bath and Millhaven. She has ran her own business for 25 years in Bath, giving her a unique understanding of needs of businesses and residents.
With her advertising and marketing company www.loyalist.pro Joy is constantly working to improve communications between local independent business owners and Loyalist Township council, while promoting new businesses to come to Loyalist and welcoming new residents.
Joy is one of the longest running members of 8 years 2006-2014 as a volunteer on the Loyalist Township Recreation Advisory Committee, where she helped bring recreational programs and develop parks for all ages in Loyalist Township.
She has worked hard over the years to bring Loyalist issues to Loyalist Township council, for their help in resolving the problems . Joy ran for Deputy Mayor (Reeve) of Loyalist in 2010 and came within 200 votes of getting the position and set records for turnouts at the poles. She has since then continued to go to Loyalist Council meetings on a regular basis and attend the budget meetings. In 2016 she was the only public at the only 2 budget meetings that were held both in bad ice storms.
She helped bring Bath Revitalization to Bath community in 2006 and worked with 3 levels of government, she also spear headed Bath Spring Pitch in Program in 2007, and sat as Chair of Bath Canada Day Committee on its 50th Anniversary in 2009 that won the Lennox and Addington Economic Development - Tourism Operation of the Year Award.
Since 2012 she has been completely sailing on the 3 man 26ft Soling - now 3 Canadians, 2 North American Championships and the Worlds in 2016 held in Kingston KYC and the only local team that represented Loyalist. Joy was the only female in the Canadians in 2012 and 1 of the 3 woman that have been racing Canadian Soling for the last 6 years. She loves this sport and would love to bring a sailing school to Bath for kids and adults to learn. She was part of a team that brought the Soling Canadians Championships to Bath in 2012 and look forward to bringing the Canadian Championships back in the future !!! In 2018 she now has just completed the Canadians in Hamilton end of June, and will be competing in the North Americans in Montreal in September.
