Flamborough E-NEWS
June 2020
Welcome to the June edition of ENEWS. There are many important updates to share with you this month, including a new combined Police and Fire Station proposed for Waterdown, an Internet Survey, Interim Control By-Law and more.

June is the month of student graduations, prom parties and family celebrations. Although 2020 graduations will look different this year, it is no less a time for students to celebrate. Make your celebration memorable. Wear that prom dress or debonair suit and decorate your graduation caps as only you can. Cross the stage on your front lawn, make a video. COVID-19 cannot take away all that you have learned and accomplished. Your future will be bright, just follow your shining star. I wish you all the best for your future.
 
If you have any questions please join me on Facebook at Judi Luxon Partridge for video updates, visit my website judipartridge.ca , or send me an email at Judi.Partridge@hamilton.ca.

Please keep safe and protect yourselves.

Kind Regards
Councillor Judi Partridge
