Sunday November 28, 2010

Ladies and Gentlemen

You may expect me to be waxing eloquently about the delightful first snowfall that we received in Midland on Friday – don’t count on it.

A busy week ahead, with a splash of Christmas. On Monday November 29 the YMCA is offering Gifts to Give at the NSSRC from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm. This event re-gifts unused items for those who need a helping hand this Christmas.

On Tuesday November 30th, the Province will be hosting an information session on its recent “growth plan” decisions. The briefing takes place at 2:30 pm at the Southshore Community Centre in Barrie. You can expect to hear a lot about growth and economic development over the next few years.

Wednesday starts the inauguration ceremonies for the new Councils:

- Tiny inauguration – Wednesday December 1st at 1:00 pm

- Penetanguishene – Wednesday December 1st at 7:00 pm

- Tay – Thursday December 2nd at 7:30 pm

- Midland – Monday December 6th at 7:00 pm

All inaugurations take place in their respective Town Halls, except Midland’s which will be held at the NSSRC.

On Friday December 3rd the Silver Stick Hockey tournament comes to Town. If you love youth hockey this is the event to see. Puck drops at 1:45 pm at the NSSRC.

On Saturday December 4th get ready for the Civitan Santa Claus parade in Midland. It starts at 1:00 pm downtown. Dress warmly.

And in closing our Georgian Bay General Hospital challenge team has now moved up to 8th spot. If we are to get the $100,000 prize for new beds we need you to get clicking. Please vote every day at We need those hospital beds.
