Best wishes to all for a happy, healthy and peaceful 2017. As I write this I realize I can see very little out the window - another very stormy day in Zorra’s north end. I always say we are having Perth County weather on a day like this - at least that is where I put the blame.
Tomorrow January 5 at 2 p.m. the first meeting of the 150th Committee will take place at the Township Office. This is a meeting open to all -especially representatives of organizations in Zorra. We want to hear your plans for celebrating this anniversary, share ideas and let everyone know that there will be some funding available to assist groups with plans and hopefully there will be useful assistance offered by others in the Township if help is needed. Following this first meeting we are hoping to organize a committee who will attempt to oversee the plans. One idea is to produce a Zorra calendar of events for the year and to assist with the advertising of the events. The Township will likely plan one special event but we are counting on groups all over Zorra to each contribute an event(s) to the overall celebration. Please try to attend - especially if you represent an organization (even more than one, possibly).
January 16 at 7 p.m. at the Township Office we will be holding a special 2017 Budget event. This is an information meeting for all residents. Council members will be in attendance but will not be discussing the budget. We will be there to hear your ideas and suggestions. The next day January 17 will be the Council meeting where our discussion may begin - although usually most discussions take place at a special meeting held for that purpose. Dates for that will be announced.
