The Premier of Ontario has declared a province-wide state of emergency and issued a stay-at-home order in response to rising COVID-19 variant infection rates.
Given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the town’s commitment to slowing the spread of the virus, our Community Spirit Awards event originally scheduled for June 11 has been cancelled.
Nominations are no longer being accepted and any submissions received to date will be considered for next year’s event. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience and understanding.
