There were a couple of group cancellations to report about this week due to no turnout or poor turnout. The first one was the Township of Georgian Bay sponsored Smart Serve course that was to be held at the MacTier Library on February 20. The second one is the four-on-four men’s hockey tournament that was to take place on March 1 and 2 at the MacTier Arena. Again teams not available, this was sponsored by the MacTier Lion’s Club.
So, let’s hope some from this area attend the free job fair sponsored by the Township of Georgian Bay on March 7. This takes place at the Baxter Ward Community Centre from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Bring your resume, network, and explore employment options. For details on this contact Jennifer Whiston at 1-800-567-0187, ext 261.

MacTier Public School recently held their winter whirl outside activities for all the classes. It was a rare nice day for the event. Here is a bit of school nostalgia. The first
Methodist Church was built in the summer of 1911, and opened in August of that year.
The first school was located at present day Muskoka Station Store and the old MacTier Library site. When the second school was built in 1920-21 on its present site they converted the old school into a town hall.
There is a free Family Movie Night on Sunday, March 10 at 6:30 p.m. This is at the New Life Fellowship Church. Feature film comes from the Love Comes Softly book series.
Spring is just around the corner, let’s hope we are not flooded out with all this snow melting. Have a great week.
