Saturday September 17, 2011

Ladies and Gentlemen

Those beautifully crisp bright days of autumn have arrived. The kids are back at school. Summer tourists have fled.  We should all breathe a sigh of relief - except there is so much to do!

This Sunday September the 18th at will see a Legion remembrance ceremony at Lakeview Cemetery. All are welcome.

Wednesday September 21st at at the Penetanguishene Town Hall is their public meeting on police services for Penetanguishene. Penetanguishene is trying to decide whether to continue to contract with the OPP or join with Midland to create a new joint police service for our area. Information publicly available indicates that the new joint service will be less costly and will likely provide better control and a local focus to policing. This meeting will give the residents of Penetanguishene their say as to how they wish to be policed.

On Thursday September 22nd at is the Huronia Community Foundation luncheon and AGM at the NSSRC. If you intend on going please call the HCF ahead of time. 

Later that day at is the official opening of our new Town Hall. There will be number of presentations and tours will be available. Please do come out and join us for this important event.  It’s a busy evening. The Chamber All Candidates debate takes place that evening (6) but over at the Native Friendship Centre.

Friday is the start of the Coldwater Fall Fair which runs until Sunday September the 25th. The opening parade takes place at on Friday September the 23rd.  Come and see one of the best fall fairs in our area.

Saturday September 24th will see an eco-event called “Moving Planet”, meant to remind us that we don’t always need to use the car to get around. There will be a number of events including a walk from the Native Friendship Centre at and a gathering at our Community Garden in Little Lake Park starting at . 

In closing, an update on the Hugel roadwork. The first phase up to and including
Second Street

Second Street
