Volunteer Appreciation Awards

Do you know someone who makes a positive difference in the community through their volunteer work? Now is the time to recognize them for it.

The deadline for submissions is March 13. For more information or to submit a nomination, visit

Schomberg Community Hall Open House

I’m so excited to share the news that there will be an open house to celebrate the completion of renovations to the Schomberg Community Hall.

The renovation of the hall at 325 Main Street has created an energy-efficient, environmentally conscious and fully accessible space designed to meet current accessibility standards.

We’re now inviting the community to see the hall at an open house on Friday, Feb. 3 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The Township has also started accepting booking requests for events by email at

Safe Community Project Zero

I was fortunate to attend an event on Jan. 24 that will make our community a lot safer.

Enbridge Gas and King Fire and Emergency Services are working together to improve home safety and bring fire and carbon monoxide-related deaths down to zero.

King Fire and Emergency Services received 252 combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarms through Safe Community Project Zero, a public education campaign with the Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council that will provide more than 8,000 alarms to residents in 50 municipalities across Ontario.

This year, Enbridge Gas invested $250,000 in Safe Community Project Zero, and over the past 14 years, the program has provided more than 76,000 alarms to Ontario fire departments.

When properly installed and maintained, combination smoke and carbon monoxide alarms help provide the early warning to safely escape from a house fire or carbon monoxide exposure. Carbon monoxide is a toxic, odourless gas that is a by-product of incomplete combustion of many types of common fuels.

This donation from Enbridge Gas and the Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council will help the King Fire and Emergency Services team continue to do its great work in fire prevention and safety awareness. Safe Community Project Zero focuses on what businesses and fire services can do together to make our homes safer, with the goal of no lives lost.

Please continue to stay safe, volunteer and shop locally as much as you can.
