Sunday May 19, 2013

Ladies and Gentlemen

Its summertime.  Our Sunday farmer’s market is back for the season, the Legion is hosting its first BBQ and our dandelions have never looked better. Time to get out there and enjoy the best Town on the planet.

Two items for this long Victoria Day weekend:
-       Please join our Legion Branch 80 as they have a good old fashioned beef BBQ this Sunday afternoon starting at 5:00 pm at our legion
-       The first working ship of the season to make port will be honoured on Monday May 20th at the ADM dock at 10:30 am.

On Tuesday May 21st Waypoint is holding a special event to inform you about the research and development that they are undertaking with a number of universities. That’s at 1:30 pm at the Oak Ridge activity centre.  Then at 5:00 pm that day you are invited to the wrap-up of Artsvest program at the NSSRC. This special program has seen a number of artists and businesses come together to see how they can support each other. Stronger arts and more vibrant businesses – great for Midland.

Wednesday brings a very special personal event to Midland – the retirement of Mr. Fred Hacker from the leadership of his law practice. Few of us need any reminder of the significant and extensive contribution to our community from this native son – Rotary; Habitat for Humanity, our Santa Claus parade and many more. The good news is that Fred has no intention of retiring from his many philanthropic activities. I know you will join me in recognizing this milestone for a great civic leader.

Also on May 22nd you may wish to join Garfield Dunlop at Ste. Marie Among the Hurons at 6:00 pm as they establish the OPP Youth Foundation.  Please call Garfield`s office for tickets – tickets are $100. 

Thursday will be a busy day for me as I participate in a full day strategy session at the County. We will be discussing items such as transportation links, social housing and waste collection - matters that will affect our quality of life in Midland. Let me know if you have any input for the County agenda.

On Friday, Huronia Players launches the third play of its season – Communicating Doors. We have a remarkable theater company in Huronia Players. This is your chance to come out and enjoy exceptional theatre. Tickets are available at the Midland Cultural Centre

And as for the week-end:
-       Saturday May 25th (10:00 am to 5:00 pm) and Sunday May 26th (10:00 am to 4:00 pm) you will want to come to the NSSRC for the Model Train Show. A great collection of model train displays and folks who truly love what they are doing
-       Sunday May 26th at 1:00 pm at the Town dock, the Lions host their annual event to promote guide dogs.

Now back to enjoying the weekend.
