-       10:00 am to 5:00 pm - Sweetwater Festival at the Wye Marsh. Pancakes with maple syrup are always a highlight

-       8:00 pm - Tartan Terrors at MCC. Tartan Terrors are their own Celtic Invasion, mixing rock’s energy with traditional folklore, dance, and humor. With an arsenal featuring classic pipes and fiddle, driving drum tones, and signature guitar styles, we can see why Dig This Magazine declares “The Terrors - one act to keep an eye on!”

Council Issues Update


This past Friday our 13 MPS officers who transferred to the OPP graduated from their initial training. The ceremony was moving and clearly showed the professionalism and character of our returning officers. The Town of Midland and the OPP would like to thank the families, friends and residents for their overwhelming support of our former MPS officers. We would like to congratulate the officers on completing their training, and look forward to having them back on patrol for the OPP in Midland starting Monday!


The MPUC sale process before the Ontario Energy Board slowly continues. The good news is that all is proceeding as expected. It looks like a couple of more months before the process completes.


Georgian Bay General Hospital is actively recruiting for several new candidates to hold positions on its Board of Directors.  The deadline for applications is April 7, 2018 at 4 p.m. Further details regarding requirements can be found at . If you have questions, please contact Jacki Dumont at (
