Mayor DeViet's COVID-CUT Haircut
COVID-Cut Challenge Update

The two-week Mayor's COVID-Cut Challenge drew to a close last Friday, and I’m delighted to report more than $5,400 was raised for the Ailsa Craig and Area Food Bank! This is a tremendous response from our community and will go a long way to helping local families.

As promised, since our community raised more than $5,000 in donations, my husband gave me a new "COVID-Cut" hairstyle (see photo).

I’m most grateful for your generosity and efforts on this campaign as well as all of the other ‘projects’ that are happening across Middlesex Centre to help those who need a hand during this challenging time.

Thank-you very much!


Victoria Day Celebrations, Parks & Reopening our Community

We’ve just had our first “virtual” Mother’s Day and now look forward to a very different Victoria Day long weekend. For me, it won’t be the same without fireworks!

While there won’t be any camping, the Premier did announce that Provincial Parks are opening this week for walking, biking and bird watching. It was also nice to see that Provincial Parks will be free until the end of the month.

We've taken direction from the province, and Middlesex Centre parks have reopened as well. Please note that playgrounds, sports fields, tennis courts and other park amenities remain closed for now.

As the Province begins to allow certain businesses and services to reopen, we need to remember that COVID-19 is still with us. We need to maintain physical distances, avoid gathering in groups, and continue to act responsibly to make certain we are taking precautions to stop the spread.

Stay well,
Aina
