Sunday November 18, 2012

Ladies and Gentlemen

A quieter week as Midland steps towards Christmas. The Town Christmas tree is now lit. Out of the Cold has again opened its doors for our homeless citizens. The Salvation Army has placed its kettles in the stores. Can snow be far off?

The YMCA is organizing its annual “Gifts to Give” event. If you have any good quality items (except clothing and furniture) that you would think of re-gifting to others, you can donate them to the event at the YMCA offices at 334 King Street. They will be receiving gifts during the periods November 19th to 23rd and November 26th to 30th from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm and on Saturdays November 24th and December 1st from 10 am to 1:30 pm. 

Then on Monday December the 3rd from 9:00 am to 11:00 am at the NSSRC, the YMCA will offer your gifts to needy families who want to give a gift to their loved ones, but do not have the means to buy their own.

On Tuesday November 20th at Town Hall at 6:00 pm, we will receive the second draft operating and capital budget. Our 2013 budget should be ready for Council approval in December.

Thursday November the 22nd, the YMCA Employment Centre hosts its annual Peaceworks awards ceremony. These awards honor those who have made a significant contribution to making Midland a better place for all.  The ceremony takes place at their office at 334 King Street starting at 7:00 pm.

The evening of the 22nd is also the Rotary TV auction.  This popular annual event is one the major fund raisers for our Midland Rotary club, a great service club that does so much for our community. The bidding opens on-line on the 19th of November and wraps up with the TV broadcast on the 22nd.  Get ready for Christmas by checking out the on-line bidding at:

Every time I visit our new Cultural Centre I become more convinced it is one of the best things that has ever happened to our Town. You have another chance to visit Midland’s exciting cultural centre on Friday November 23rd when “Red Chamber” performs starting at 7:30 pm. These performances are brought to us by John French’s Brookside Music. Tickets are available at the MCC or on-line at

This Saturday November 24th you are invited to attend the opening for the new expansion at the Georgian Bay Native Friendship Centre.  The ceremonies start at 2:30 pm.
