Lots of community events in Erin

There’s a great deal going on in the next few weeks in the Town of Erin.

On Oct. 30, councillor John Brennan noted that with recent circumstances in Ottawa and Quebec, Remembrance Services this year will be especially poignant.

He noted the Erin Legion’s veteran’s dinner on Nov. 8 at 6pm and a public service on Nov. 9 starting at 10:45am followed by a community service at the legion at noon.

Another service will be at the cenotaph on Nov. 11.

On Nov. 13 the Rotary Club is holding its annual pasta dinner fundraiser at the Hillsburgh Community Centre from 5 to 8pm.

Then on Nov. 14, Erin’s Window Wonderland gets underway, with decorated windows being unveiled at 6pm.

“The merchants go through a great deal of trouble to make their windows very attractive. They usually have some good deals as well as refreshments.”

In addition, the tree lighting in McMillan Park is at 6:30pm.

Brennan also made note of the Upper Credit Humane Society’s second annual Empty Bowls SoupFest at Centre 2000 in Nov. 15 from 11:30am to 2pm.

Mayor Lou Maieron called Brennan “a wonderful resource … given we’ve lost Erin Radio.”

Brennan quipped “I’ve been told I have a nice face for radio.”

Maieron added “we can continue to count on you to keep our community informed.”

Councillor-elect Jeff Duncan was unable to attend the session.

CAO Kathryn Ironmonger noted Duncan attended the service for Nathan Frank Cirillo and on behalf of the town signed the book of remembrance.
