Ladies and Gentlemen

Thanksgiving weekend is upon us. The weather is glorious. I will keep this short.

Town staff is now working out of the new Town Hall. Construction work is still all around but we are open for business.

This Sunday October 10th SHARE will plant two apple trees as part of the 10/10/10 Global Work Party Day. The ceremony takes place at 2:00pm at the Penetanguishene Community Garden on 144 Fox Street.

On Tuesday October 12th at 12 noon you are invited to share a free chili lunch with the people who provide Out of the Cold. The lunch will be provided in the shelter at Knox Presbyterian Church.

Then at 7:00 pm at the NSSRC the Town will host its General Committee meeting. (Written Input Only). A very short agenda including:
- a petition by the Little Lake Village Condominium Corp. to consider reducing their taxes
- Georgian Bay Snow Riders requesting trail access in Midland

Friday the 15th is the annual Wye Marsh dinner and fundraiser. For tickets please contact the Wye Marsh. Festivities start with a silent auction followed by dinner at 7:00 pm.

2010 is the 400th anniversary of Etien Brule’s arrival in Huronia. A special commemorative event will take place at the Huronia Museum in the Huron/Wendat Native village longhouse shortly after 1:00 pm on Sunday October 17th.

And finally Sue Bannon and the good people at the Midland Area Reading Council need your help. Sue is trying to get funding from the AVIVA Community Fund and needs you to show support by signing onto the contest website. Please help by registering at After your confirmation email arrives, follow the links to finalize your registration. Please do this soon – time is short.
