Have you wanted to see the Tony Award-winning musical THE BOOK OF MORMON? Everyone is invited to join us on the Tues. Sept. 30/14 bus trip to the Princess of Wales Theatre.
Bus will leave at 2:30 pm, arriving in Toronto in time for you to enjoy a relaxed dinner before the show at a restaurant of your choice. Bus and show tickets cost just $95 (compared to current ticket prices of show alone for $85).
If you are old enough to see this biting religious satire (warning: swearing and explicit language) then you are old enough to purchase your tickets at Askennonia Senior Centre, Midland – (705)526-7609 or
www.askennonia.com for more info.
Please pass this along on to anyone you think might be interested. Thank you.

The HFA is proud to contribute funds to support two talented dancers, Rebecca Martin, 15 and Rachel Commodore, 16, after they were selected by the Quinte Ballet School of Canada in Belleville to “eat, sleep and dream- and of course dance” ballet during the professional summer intensive program, which serves as part 2 of their audition for admission to this prestigious school.
Rachel and Rebecca danced leading roles in The School of Dance and Musicianship’s production of "Hansel & Gretel" last summer. Recently the young ladies participated in the 2014 Midland Music Festival in the Ballet Solo and Trio categories and were awarded gold for all their performances. Both girls assisted in choreographing their dances.Read more: The HFA supports dance students ...
Help Celebrate Canada’s Birthday
In appreciation of the great country in which we live, our community will again be hosting Canada Day Celebrations. The Midland Civitan Club has been asked to co-ordinate the Canada Day parade for the Midland festivities.
Everyone loves a parade; however, it takes the participation of groups and individuals to form a parade. An entry could be a decorated float or small trailer, a family walking or riding, decorated bicycles, or anyone with a unique entry of quality. Remember red is the colour of the day and enthusiasm is the key.
Please consider entering so that we may continue with this customary lead off to the Canada Day activities in the Park.Read more: Want to be part of a Parade?
