Titbits – Don’t forget that today is the last day you can order your Meat Pies ‘with veggies’ from the Wawa Goose Senior’s Club. You can sign up at the Drop-In Centre or call 705-856-7394 this afternoon.

 

It is also the last day you can order a rain barrel from the EDC. For $45, it is a great way to harness some of your rainfall and use it to water your garden or lawn.
