From the Mayor
A Community Thank You from Mayor Rick2019-10-07 11:41:002019-10-07 11:41:00Mayor Rick Bonnette's Monthly Column
This past weekend marked an historic moment for our Town as we hosted Rogers Hometown Hockey. Halton Hills didn't just host a festival; we hosted a showcase of what our community is all about – camaraderie, pride and family. In a remarkably short time, staff put the call out to businesses, schools and volunteers….and the community responded with a resounding 'Yes we can'.
Honestly, I couldn't be more proud to be your Mayor but more importantly, I couldn't be more proud to be your neighbour, your colleague, your friend and your fellow resident in this great Town of Halton Hills.
Together we showed Canada what we are all about – small town living at its best.
Thank you to Rogers Hometown Hockey for selecting our Town to be your host for this season's launch;
Thank you to our Town staff who did such a tremendous job with professionalism, humour and grace;
Thank you to the 20 elementary schools who participated in the 'fill the net challenge', collecting over 22,000 food items;
Thank you to the over 40 businesses who participated in the 'paint the town red and white' contest;
Thank you to the 163 teams (and notably minor hockey) who participated in the record-breaking 'Parade of Champions';
And finally, thank you to the residents who came out by the thousands to celebrate, cheer and demonstrate that 'Halton Hills LOVES Rogers Hometown Hockey'.
