Carnivals and Collingwood Days

You know that summer is in full swing when there are public events and carnivals at every corner. This year’s Collingwood Days was a huge success (and not a drop of rain!). The sun was shining brightly at Gaston Park (relocated from the Carleton School grounds) and it was a fantastic turnout. Thanks to Angela Evans and the Collingwood BIA for bringing together the community every year in celebration. This May and June, we celebrated and fundraised for so many local establishments: Bruce, Beaconsfield, and MacCorkindale Elementary Schools, Gladstone Secondary School, and Kensington Cedar Cottage. I want to applaud everyone on their successful events!

Congratulations to High School Graduates

My congratulations go out to all graduating students from Gladstone, Windermere and Killarney Secondary Schools. This is an exciting time for all of you and your families and I wish you all the very best in your future endeavors. I am proud each year to sponsor scholarships for graduating students and look forward to attending this year’s graduation ceremonies!

Join me on Canada Day

Come out to Renfrew Park Community Centre on July 1st to celebrate Canada Day (12-4pm)! The cake cutting will be at 3:30pm. The Youth Celebrate Canada Day Festival is organized each year by a terrific group of volunteer Windermere high school students.
