Saturday June 16, 2012

Ladies and Gentlemen

The soft siren call of summer is in the air. It’s time to start winding down a bit – time to get out with the BBQ, a stroll through our parks or simply sitting with a coffee in one of our many summer sidewalk cafes. Midland – yours to enjoy.

Two items for Monday June 18th. At 12 noon the Georgian Bay General Hospital hosts its AGM at the Midland Cultural Centre. Then at 4:30 pm the Town holds a closed meeting to discuss a labour matter.

On Tuesday June 19th another AGM.  This time it’s your MPUC who will hold their meeting at 6:00 pm the MPUC building.

Wednesday will see may people gather in Barrie to say goodbye to Brian Tamblyn, the retiring President of Georgian College.  Brian has been a good friend to Midland over the years, especially with the growth of our own Midland campus.

On Thursday June 21st I will head to Christian Island to participate in the Beausoleil First Nation Signatory Celebration. The celebration recognizes the financial settlement between the federal government the three Chippewa First Nations in our area that has been outstanding for over 100 years. Then at 5:00 pm that evening the four municipal heads of Council will meet in Tay to discuss matters affecting our district of Huronia.

Saturday is very special.  It marks the return of the historic passenger ship Keewatiin to Port McNicoll.  The celebrations run from noon to 5:00 pm, with the official ceremony about 2:30 pm.  You will want to arrive early as parking may be a challenge.

In closing the week, take look at the video recognizing the opening of our new Midland Cultural Centre.  Also please note MCC tours will continue for the public in June from Monday through Saturday at 11:30 am to 1:00 pm and 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm.
