The New Life Fellowship Church service held at the MacTier Public Beach on Stewart Lake was received with good attendance; this was on Sunday, Aug. 26.
It was great weather and everyone enjoyed the fresh air.
The Township of Georgian Bay Children’s Day Camps are now finished, and into the next week its back to school. MacTier School is quickly being cleaned up and finished with a new room and some other rooms modified. Another school term begins!
Here is a few notes from MacTier Royal Canadian Legion Branch 507. They would like to thank MacTier Bait, Tackle, and More for supplying the snacks for the CNIB visitors on Thursday nights throughout the past summer months. It was very appreciated.
And the first general meeting for MacTier Legion after summer will be on September 24 at 8 p.m. Show your support. Also the legion is holding a mini dart tournament on September 9, starting at 1 p.m. This is mixed doubles and the cost is $25 per team.
This includes your darts and a light snack. First 20 teams will play. Call the legion to enter at 705-375-2810.
The Township of Georgian Bay September basket of vegetables for $15 will arrive on September 18. You must be paid up by September 11. Contact Joanne Nicholson for details at 705-375-5572.
Here is some Township of Georgian Bay Council highlights from Monday, Aug. 27.
The new public Planning Committee will be made up of Elizabeth Halpenny (Cognashene), Michael William (Go Home Bay), Armin Grigaitis (Honey Harbour), Rudolf Kurz (Stewart Lake), and Jack Hope (Go Home Lake), Councillor Paul Wiancko and Coun. Kennedy. Introductory meeting will be September 21. Twelve Township properties will be sold to raise up to $600,000 to pay down a good portion of our existing debt; most properties are building lots. They should be debt free next year.
An exploratory meeting will be held this fall with all Township stakeholders to discuss the potential value of a Municipal Heritage Committee. Of the 498 septic systems to be inspected this year, 360 are completed with 47 requiring repairs. Council approved the review of a four-ward option. To date, the Township consultant hired to redraw our electoral wards has only looked at a two-ward and three-ward options. A four-ward system would see one more councillor for a total of seven council members (including the mayor).
Remember to attend the Parry Sound Area Municipal Airport’s 9th annual fly-in on Saturday, Sept. 8, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Lots of old and new planes coming and going: classic cars on hand, lots of food, and the Northern Lights 80 piece steel band will entertain you during the day.
MacTier Curling Club Men’s Horseshoe League play-offs are underway and I will have full details as to who overall winners are of ‘A’ and ‘B’ divisions next week.
Another holiday weekend is arriving, remember drive safely, please do not drink and drive whether in the car or boat. Have a great weekend.
