Ladies and Gentlemen
Just back from the Terry Fox run. Must have been 400-500 people - running, cycling, walking, horseback riding - from babes-in-arms to great grandparents. We are regarded as the 14th most successful run in the province in terms of fund raising. A great testament to Terry, the event organizers and to our community. And was it warm - summer is back with a vengeance.
The Week Ahead
Monday the 18th starts with our Fire Department being recognized by Enbridge Gas for their excellent service. A ceremony will take place at 10:00 am at the Fire Hall on Bayshore. At 11:00 am Big Brother and Big Sisters raises their flag at Town Hall. Then at 6:00 pm you are invited to join them for a social hour at Brooklea as they celebrate the many volunteers who help the children of our area.
On Wednesday September 20th the Service Delivery Review committee meets at Town Hall at 1:00 pm. The Committee is going through the operations of every municipal department to see if there are better ways of serving our customers and/or for improving efficiency. This process is part of the Midland Forward strategy adopted by Council and led by staff. A “change champion”, one from each department, will make sure that recommendations are based on insights from our staff. Look for a formal report to Council in October/November.
Thursday the 21st sees the Heads of Council meeting at 5:00 pm in Tiny. This gathering of the mayors and deputy mayors of the four municipalities reviews issues that affect all of North Simcoe. At 6:00 pm you are invited to attend that Gateway AGM, taking place in the Quest meeting room at MCC.
On Friday the 22nd Bruce Stanton and Patrick Brown are inviting all seniors to their Seniors Day at NSSRC. The event starts at 9:30 am and features a seniors oriented trade show, presentations and complementary lunch. At 7:00 pm Quest Art invites you to witness their 2nd annual Art Slam. This creative event will feature 24 artists who are given a theme and 30 minutes to create a work of art. A crazy good time.
