I can’t imagine living anywhere but here.
I love this town.

Hi, my name is Iain Lovatt. 

My wife, Mary, and I fell in love with Stouffville when we made the move from Unionville in 2007 with our children Maizie, Aidan, and Ellie.  Our love for this community has only grown over the years as our family began to participate in the community through the kids' schools, my son's hockey teams and my daughters' involvement in the Stouffville Steppers. We love walking down Main St. and bumping into people we know–people who love this town as much as we do. We have made W-S not just a place to live, but a place we call home.
