Ladies and Gentlemen

Election Day is October 27th. Your vote does matter.


Monday October 13th is a day of Thanksgiving and a chance to enjoy some turkey with family and friends. It’s also the start of the County yard waste and leaf pick-up in Midland – check your County calendar.

On Tuesday October 14th it’s back to the regular fare – more meetings.  County Council meets at 9:00 am in Midhurst.  At 6:00 pm Council has a closed meeting at the Town Hall.  The meeting will address the OMB appeal respecting the Guesthouse rezoning and labour relations.

At 7:00 pm that evening is the October General Committee meeting. A relatively light agenda including:

Thursday is senior’s day.  At 10:00 at the NSSRC is the monthly Seniors Council meeting. I will be there to update on recent developments from our area’s healthcare discussion. Also from 10 a.m. to noon, more than 30 health organizations from North Simcoe will offer displays and information. Lunch will be served at noon and will be followed by guest speakers Dr. Glenn Cameron and Kristy Murphy from Waypoint Centre for Mental Health Care. All taking place in the Askennonia room.



The 9th annual Georgian Bay General Hospital Foundation Gala presented by "Your GBGH ER Docs" will whisk you away to vibrant Brazil, for Carnival - Night in Rio! – 7:30 pm at MCC.  You'll be able to sample the tastes of Carnival prepared by the top local chefs as part of our chefs' showcase; samba in the famed Sambordromo Parade; and eat your sweets atop Sugarloaf Mountain at sunset while sipping your Brazilian coffee.
