Ladies and Gentlemen
Matthew, a precocious eight-year old who I know well, put a donation box in his father’s store to raise Christmas funds for the Midland Children’s Toy Drive. On Remembrance Day someone stole the box. Matthew’s response “maybe they were desperate”. If you can help Matthew and the Toy Drive, toys can be dropped off at the Elegant Gourmet.
The Town continues its budget discussion on Monday November the 15th at 5:30 pm at the NSSRC. (You May Not Speak) This should be the last budget discussion under the old Council. Monday also sees the start of the Out of the Cold season at Knox church.
On Tuesday November the 16th Simcoe County Federation of Agriculture is sponsoring the “Alternate Energy and the Family Farm Symposium”. The event starts at 6:30 pm at the Simcoe County Museum.
On Thursday November the 18th from 4-6:00 pm you are invited to attend the Midland Area Reading Council opening of its new book store in the Midland library.
Friday is special as we get into the Christmas spirit by lighting our Community Christmas Tree. The procession starts at 6:00 pm at the corner of King and Yonge, then down to the tree lighting at the Town Dock.
And on Saturday get set to kick-up your heels at Rosewood’s Sparkle ‘n Spurs fundraising dinner. A lot of fun and an excellent cause.
