Sunday June 22, 2014

Ladies and Gentlemen

It’s officially summer. The Butter Tart festival and Party on the Dock are in the books - both having been incredibly successful.  It’s now time to settle into the lazy hazy days of summer.  Feel the relief…..

Monday June 23rd starts with a closed meeting at 6:30 pm to discuss appointments to various Town committees. At 7:00 pm is the Council meeting.  A relatively short agenda including:
-       Two deputations:
o    Update on our source water protection
o    Tiffin residents concerned about the removal of development covenants
-       Information about the authorities for the Police Service Board
-       A by-law to require citizens to maintain their boulevards

County Council will be meeting on Tuesday June 24th, at 9:00 am in Midhurst.  An interesting agenda for Midland as it will deal with:
-       Establishing an economic development committee, complementing the one we now have in North Simcoe and
-       Launching a transit study to review and implement needed public transit systems in Simcoe County
At 3:00 pm the North Simcoe Housing Working Group meets at Town Hall – if you are interested in our housing future you are welcome to attend. And to close the day, at 7:00 pm the North Simcoe municipalities are hosting a public meeting to provide information for those who are thinking of running for public office in the upcoming municipal election. That’s at the NSSRC. 

Wednesday is a bit quieter.  You are invited to attend the Huronia Players AGM at 7:00 pm at the MCC – it’s an AGM but the Players always make it a fun time.

Thursday is just busy. You may wish to begin by attending the graduation ceremony for the Learning Centre at 10:30 am at the NSSRC.  Then at noon, the GBGH hosts its AGM at the MCC.  That afternoon at 2:00 pm will see the four municipalities meeting at the Tay Town Hall for the regular Huronia Economic Alliance meeting.  You are welcome to attend. 

At 4:00 pm the GBGH provides a “Report to the Community”. The meeting will take place in the cafeteria in the hospital.  The meeting is intended for the public and will bring you up to speed on the challenges facing our hospital.  At 7:00 pm its graduation night.  Both MSS and St. Theresa host their graduating ceremonies. (Do you remember your graduation ceremony? – excitement and energy)

And if you were to have wandered by the Town dock sometime during the day, you may have noticed the tall ship Peacemaker coming into harbor for visit. The Peacemaker and crew will be here until the 30th.

On Friday June 27th, Shelter Now is having a fundraising Car Wash from 12:00 until 6:30 in their back parking lot (850 Hartman Drive, just off of Yonge). For a minimum $5.00 donation and a food donation for the Midland Salvation Army food bank you can get your car sparkling shiny and even enjoy a hamburger, drink and/or a freezie while you wait!


            Come and visit the tall ship Peacemaker, in Midland harbor until June 30


Canada Day is just around the corner. Please take a look at the preliminary schedule (attached.)
