Saturday December 3, 2011

Ladies and Gentlemen

You know that something is out of whack when you hear the sounds of lawnmowers while on your way to the Civitan Santa Claus parade. Fabulous parade by the way.

On Monday a special event takes place in Midland.  The YMCA is hosting its annual “Gifts to Give” event. Unused “re-giftable” items are made available to persons who may not be able to buy their own Christmas gift.  Last year over 300 individuals were helped by this community exchange. If you have a quality item that you would like to donate please take it to the NSSRC on Monday December 5th between and . If you are in need and would like to choose a gift, please go the NSSRC between and that same day.

On Tuesday December 6th at at the Midland Library, La Maison Rosewood Shelter will remember the tragic events of 1989 when 14 young women lost their lives. Please come and participate in this national day of remembrance and action on violence against women.

Wednesday December 7th at at the Town Hall is the Planning and Development Committee meeting. The meeting will not consider the site plan application for the recycling plant at 1001 Franke
