Message from the Mayor
National Volunteer Week in Canada, a time to celebrate the many volunteers who contribute their talents to make Middlesex Centre a strong, vibrant and fun place to live.
On behalf of Council, I want to recognize all of you that volunteer your time to better our community throughout the year. Thank-you!
This year, I would like to specifically acknowledge and thank all those who have stepped up in the last month or so to help front-line workers, friends, neighbours, and those needing to self-isolate.
We’ve all seen the stories on the news and on social media about the amazing contributions of the Medway High School student who is fabricating medical face shields, the Kilworth Heights family who is raising funds for London Health Sciences Foundation through the “the biggest bottle drive ever,” and the many local knitters and sewers that are making helpful items for essential services workers.
I’m certain that for every story we read about there are many more that are silently happening in the background. It seems everyone is putting up their hand and doing what they can to make life more bearable for friends and neighbours at this time. It’s wonderful that everyone is using their skills, talents and knowledge to help out. It seems little acts of kindness inspire others and ultimately add up to make a big difference in our community.
Thanks to all of you for volunteering and doing what you can to make a difference!
Mayor Aina DeViet, Middlesex Centre
