Message from the Mayor
Aina DeViet Headshot
Hello everyone,

I’m taking an opportunity to spread some cheer! Things are looking up when I can tell you about places to go and things to do …

The weather is decidedly better and maybe someone at your house would like a night off? Patios in Ilderton, Komoka and Delaware opened last weekend. I’d encourage you to check them out and support our local businesses! If outdoor cooking is in your plans, maybe stock up at the Ilderton Farmers Market which opened for business last weekend or the Komoka Community Market which is set to open on July 4.

Good news regarding park facilities and community events is covered in the rest of the newsletter – so get outside and enjoy it all!

Mayor Aina DeViet
