Sunday May 10, 2015

Ladies and Gentlemen

The boats are back in the water and the bees are starting their summer rounds. The good ‘ol summertime cannot be far away. Lots to do so I will keep this short.

As a further sign of the new season, Monday May 11th will see the opening of the visitor information centre at the Town dock. Then the meetings start.  At 5:00 pm Council will hold a closed meeting to cover a number of topics including personal matters and the purchase/sale of property. At 7:00 pm at the Town Hall is the general Committee meeting. A short agenda including:
-       Discussion of the Miss Midland lease at the Town dock
-       Development of a policy to determine a fair value for the lease of Town facilities to not-for-profit organizations
-       Request by Habitat for Humanity for a donation of Town land

On Wednesday May 13th is our annual Candlelight Tribute for the fallen at the Midland Cenotaph.  A heartfelt ceremony to remember our veterans.  Please do attend. The ceremony starts at 7:00 pm.

That same evening at 7:30 pm at the MCC is another edition of A Day in the Life featuring Dr. David Goldbloom. Dr. Goldbloom is a psychiatrist who serves as the Senior Medical Advisor at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto. He has served as Chair of the Mental Health Commission of Canada and is a strong advocate for mental health.

Thursday May 14th will also be busy. At 12 noon you are invited by the Peaceworks group to a lunch at the Explorers Restaurant to hear about the projects they are supporting. At 1:00 pm at the Boathouse restaurant is the media launch for the 2015 Midland Butter Tart festival. You are invited out to partake in the sweet festivities. And at 2:00 pm the Downtown Master Plan Steering Committee meets in the Council Chambers to finalize our plans for our new Midland downtown. You are welcome to attend.

And with that we begin the first summer-like long weekend.  May 18th is Victoria Day – enjoy.

One final reminder, the Citizen’s Healthcare Steering Committee is looking for a few talented Board members. This volunteer group will play a critical role in linking the public in North Simcoe with our healthcare leaders in the shaping of our local healthcare systems over the coming years. Please forward your resume to Mr. Claude Marchildon at before May 15, 2015.  The Terms of Reference for the Committee are posted on
