Weekend Activities

Don’t forget there is going to be Remembrance Day Ceremonies this weekend at Milton Town Hall on Sunday November 6th at 1:30pm.  Join myself and other members of council as we honour those who have served our country, fought for freedom here and around the world and thank those who came back.

I will also be at Metro this evening from 7PM to 9PM on my Poppy detail for the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 136 so stop by, say HI and grab a poppy to support our veterans.

On Saturday there is the Volunteer Fair at the Milton Sports Centre from 10AM to 1Pm.  You can find out about a number of organizations in Milton that are looking for help and volunteers and get a good feeling of the work that is being done by Miltonians.  You can contact Carol Fuhrer at 905-878-0955 or email cfuhrer@cdhalton.ca for more details.

Also on Saturday is the Milton Seniors Centre Christmas Craft Sale at the Milton Seniors Activity Centre from 9Am to 12PM.  The Seniors’ Centre’s Creative Fingers Craft Club and Fund Development Committee invite you to drop by their annual Christmas Craft Sale and Bazaar.  There will be a wide selection of crafts, baking and preserves, jewellery, Christmas crafts, white elephant table and much more!  You can call the Seniors Activity Centre for more details at 905-875-1681.

After the Remembrance Day ceremonies, head on dow to the Italian Canadian Club of Milton (104 Tremaine Road, north of Steeles) at 5 pm for a spaghetti / meat ball dinner with special guest, the world’s most famous “hockey dad”….Walter Gretzky!!!  Call 905-878-3462 for more details.  Costs ONLY $10!!!

So, lots happening in Milton this weekend as we ramp things up toward the Santa Claus parade on November 20th.

Also, you can stay up to date on my Movember activities on my page http://mobro.co/MikeCluett I have decided to try to grow a handlebar mo’ so we’ll see how this one goes.  Should be a blast.  All for a good cause so I’m glad to donate my mug to help change the face of men’s health in Canada.

I’ll see you this weekend.
