Volunteers are the lifeblood of our community and National Volunteer Week is April 23 to 29. This is an appropriate time to pause and reflect on the valuable contributions volunteers perform each and every day.
Town of Halton Hills Council and staff would like to extend their sincere thank you to the volunteers throughout our community. Thank you for your time, energy and compassion. An act of volunteerism is like a stone thrown in a lake. Not only does it have a direct impact, but like ripples, a volunteer’s efforts reach far and wide to improve communities. Undeniably, volunteers rock!
April 22 will mark the 47th anniversary of Earth Day. To promote and celebrate Earth Day, the Town of Halton Hills is hosting "Earth Week Celebrations!” Visit www.haltonhills.ca for further details.

Bring the whole family to the newly redesigned ‘At Home in the Hills’ home show to discover the latest products, trends and services from local and regional merchants. This yearly event is brought to you by the Halton Hills Chamber of Commerce. Hours are Friday, April 21, 2017, 1:00 pm – 8:00 pm and Saturday, April 22, 2017, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm.
According to the 2016 census, Halton Region grew by 9.3% over the past five years. Milton has grown by 31% during this same period. Halton Hills population only grew by 3.6%, I think that is reasonable.
Cancer Assistance Services of Halton Hills (CAShh) needs your help with this year’s “Give Where You Live” campaign which runs from now until the end of April. All of the funds raised for CAShh remain in Halton Hills and are used to provide practical services at no charge to Halton Hills residents who are living with a cancer diagnosis. If you would like to volunteer, please contact Marilyn Inglis at the CAShh office, 905-702-8886.
April is also daffodil month for the Canadian Cancer Society. During April, volunteers raise funds for the fight against cancer. Money raised during daffodil month helps local patients living with cancer and their families.
