Ladies and Gentlemen

Another beautiful weekend in Midland. In talking with local merchants, it seems we are already attracting many spring visitors to our community. Looks like a great summer shaping up.

Monday April 30th sees a closed meeting at 4:30 pm at the Town to discuss a personnel matter.

Tuesday the first of May it gets downright busy in the afternoon and evening:
-       At 5:00 pm at the Boathouse restaurant, its Community Living Huronia’s Promo Bonanza, where all sorts of fundraising ideas will be launched
-       At 6:30 pm at the Brooklea is the YMCA discussion “Does Canada Work for All Families”. Please RSVP
-       7:00 pm has our local marina operators meeting at the NSSRC

Wednesday May 2nd starts out early in the morning as I participate in the McDonalds McHappy Day event.  Come by for a friendly breakfast and to help raise funds for Ronald McDonald’s Children Charities. 

Then at 12:00 noon, I have been invited by Midland Rotary to speak to them about our Town’s vision and challenges. Immediately following that at 2:00 pm our second Healthcare Summit will convene.  These summits are considering the business and employment strategies that will guide our area’s future. At 7:00 pm that evening is a lengthy PDC meeting at the Town.  Items include:
-       Discussion of deeming bylaws affecting two properties
-       Consideration of four Site Plan proposals (The Site Plan is usually the last step before you get your building permit) Site Plans include:
o    Hugel Lofts condo development on Hugel Ave.
o    Tim Hortons and a new office building on Bay
o    Pro Oil station at 483 King St
o    A new office building on the Canadian Tire property on Hwy 93
-       Discussion of our planning options for the Unimin site

Thursday May 3rd at 7:30 am, Canadian Tire celebrates the re-launch of its newly renovated store. At 7:00 that evening you are invited to the NSSRC to work with the Town to develop a new “special event” for Midland. This is your chance to bring new ideas and life to our community.

Friday May 4th, everyone is up early for the Mayors Day, in support of Family Physician Recruitment. The featured speaker is OPP Commissioner Doug Lewis. There are breakfast (7:00 am) and lunch (noon) sittings.  Please contact Sue Robillard at 533-2757 for tickets.

And continuing the food theme into the evening, at 5:30 pm is the Heritage Dinner at the NSSRC. Alan Taylor will fascinate us with his perspective on the War if 1812. For tickets contact the Huronia Museum.

Saturday May 5th is Treasure Day. This is your chance to put good reusable items out to the curb for someone else to pick-up and use. Please put items out at 8:00 am and take those remaining back inside by 4:00 pm. This is not a heavy waste pick-up day.

Sunday May 6th:
-       Steps for Life, supporting those injured in the workplace, is holding its walk at Peter Petersen Park at 10:30
-       CLH will host its annual Golf tournament at Brooklea at 11:30 am

 And in closing, your County has decided to go creative with its Blue Grew campaign:
