Mayor’s Canada Day Message for 2021, Municipality of Centre Hastings
I am pleased today, on behalf of the residents of Centre Hastings, to wish everyone a sincere Happy Canada Day 2021. This has been a truly unique and challenging year in a vastly changing world. Who would have thought we would be celebrating our wonderful country ‘virtually’ for a second summer. We can only hope that by July 1, 2022 that we will be able to gather together and celebrate in person.
I would like to thank you all for helping us survive this pandemic. I was thoroughly impressed with how our people came together on all levels to help others who were struggling and keeping one another safe. The community spirit, volunteers stepping up for their friends and neighbors was, and continues to be truly amazing. We may be small, but we are mighty.
It was also great to see how much progress has taken place, with new homes, new developments, and new businesses coming to Centre Hastings during these times. It speaks well for our future, people are wanting to come here and be a part of an exciting future.
If you can, please tune in to the virtual video package, as we have a great array of speakers, activities, and entertainment for you to enjoy. Also, when you get a chance come down and enjoy our Skate Park. Even if you don’t ‘skate’ or ‘scooter’, there are other attractions at the park, as well as some excellent food options including the Ice Cream Shoppe.
On behalf of myself, our Centre Hastings Council, Staff and our families, please join with us in wishing our great nation a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY CANADA!!!!!!!!!!!
Stay safe everyone!
