Sunday November 7, 2010

Ladies and Gentlemen

A crisp bright week as we pause to remember our veterans.

The Town meets at 6:30 pm on Monday November 8th in the NSSRC for an in camera meeting. Then at 7:00 pm is the General Committee meeting (Written Input Only). A relatively short meeting including:
- information about new rules allowing landlords to put “suite meters” for electricity into individual rental units. More information at
- work is about to begin on our Town dock. The DFO is doing repairs before they turn dock ownership over to the Town
- work on our skateboard park is to start next week
- Georgian Bay Snow Riders wants to organize a Polar Plunge and Puddle Jump in Little Lake as part of this February’s Winterfest – volunteers?

Thursday November 11th is Remembrance Day. We in Midland have so many to thank on this special occasion. Ceremonies will start before 11:00 am at the Cenotaph. You want to be there just after 10:00 am.

Friday November 12th sees the start of a special “INTO THE COLD” initiative. Katimavik youth will be camping (sleeping outside), in the parking lot of Knox Church, Midland from 6:30 pm Friday until 9:30 am on Saturday November 13th. M&M Meat Shops will be holding a BBQ; music will be provided; money raised will go to Midland Out of the Cold.

On Saturday November 13th from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm Georgian College Midland Campus invites you to an Open House. Learn about academic programs, admissions, housing and residence life, bursaries and general finance, athletic facilities and take a campus tour.

Two closing items.

Our hospital is trying to help our community by purchasing much needed hospital beds through a charitable giving program sponsored by Pepsi. Simply put, between now and December 31st, the community that “clicks the most” wins $100,000 for a worthy cause. This is your chance to buy new beds and not pay a cent. Please log on to and then vote every day. It takes me about 1 minute each day – we cannot win without your help.

Last week I asked you if you wanted to keep News from the Town as it was or change it to include more content. Many people responded (thank you) and asked for NFTT to be continued as it was. And so it shall be. I will look for other ways to get more background material out to those who want it.
