Winter to Spring in Richmond Hill

Richmond Hill was a great place to celebrate Winter during the first weekend of February with the Richmond Hill Winter Carnival. The Winter Carnival is always chock full of fun outside activities. Many of the attendees have participated in this event as they have for generations. 
Like many of you however, I now will look forward to the fading of winter and the beginning of spring. Another distinctly Canadian tradition happens every spring – Maple Syrup season. On March 23rd I will be proudly hosting my 3rd annual Maple Syrup Festival at the Elgin West Community Centre. Please feel welcome to join us at this event. There will be pancakes available with real Maple Syrup, horse and carriage rides to a demonstration Sugar Bush, sap boiling, and lots of fun activities for the family to enjoy. Details of this event are contained below in this e newsletter.
Also below in this e newsletter are details of recent deliberations and decisions from your Richmond Hill Council, including upcoming Operating Budget meetings. I am happy to hear from any residents with comments or concerns about these issues or any other issue in our community.


I hope you find the e newsletter informative and I would encourage you to share this with your friends and neighbours (there is a forward to a friend button at the bottom of the e newsletter).
