All doses of the vaccine are available to those who are eligible.

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.

Pollinator Community Art Project

Join 250 King residents and help us create a work of art worth celebrating! Paint a puzzle piece to help us create our Butterfly Puzzle Mural to be hung for all to see at the King Township Municipal Centre.

The project continues all summer until Flight of the Monarch Day on August 21. Puzzle pieces will be available to paint at select community events and at the King Heritage & Cultural Centre, Tuesday- Saturday, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

The Pollinator Community Art Project directly supports the Township of King’s Bee City Certification and Mayors' Monarch Pledge actionable goals. Municipalities participating the Mayors' Monarch Pledge are required to complete a minimum of three actions annually from the National NWF list of 24 actions for municipalities. One of the actions King has committed to implement for 2022 involves creating the Pollinator Community Art Project. The project aims to engage residents and promote monarch and pollinator conservation as well as cultural awareness and recognition.
