We will be meeting at the NSSRC at on Monday May 9th for our General Committee.  (Soon we will be moving to our new Town Hall Council chamber – its looking great).  Likely a long agenda including:

Some of your favourite politicians will be at McDonalds on Hwy 93 though the day on Wednesday May 11th to raise funds for Community Living Huronia. Please drop by. That same evening is the Planning and Development Committee meeting at at the NSSRC.  Two major items on the agenda are;
