On behalf of King Township Council, welcome to the July edition of the King Bulletin.
Our next big community event takes place today (Friday, July 1) at Kettleby Park on Kettleby Road between Keele and Jane streets.
The event kicks off at 5 p.m. and there will be entertainment on the stage, historical tours of Kettleby, children’s games and free cake. Food will be available to purchase or bring a picnic before the spectacular fireworks take place at dusk.
If you haven’t received your COVID-19 vaccination or booster shots yet, the GO-VAXX Bus will be at the King City Branch of the King Township Public Library on Wednesday, July 13 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
All doses of the vaccine are available to those who are eligible.
Appointments can be booked starting at 8 a.m. four days before the clinic through the online portal at covid-19.ontario.ca/book-vaccine or by calling the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre. Walk-ins are accepted while supplies last.
Indigenous Peoples Day
I was happy to attend the unveiling of an interactive trail marker at the King Heritage and Cultural Centre as we marked Indigenous Peoples Day last week.
Indigenous Artist Don Chretien, of the Nipissing First Nation, created the trail marker “Memengwaa” which means ‘butterfly’. The project is a collaboration with York Region Arts Council, King Township Public Library, King Heritage and Cultural Centre and King Township. Thanks to all of those who attended, and to members of King Council for helping with the unveiling.
Please continue to stay safe, volunteer and shop locally as much as you can.
Mayor Steve Pellegrini
