Mayors for Meals was a heart warming success!
I am a lifelong resident of the Bancroft area and so in my role as Program Coordinator at Community Care North Hastings I feel privileged to have the opportunity to help our senior community members thrive in their own homes.
Most recently I had the honor of assisting our local Mayors in delivering Meals on Wheels to two local gentlemen
April 8, 2012
Mayor Bernice Jenkins of the Town of Bancroft and Mayor Vivian Bloom of the Municipality of Hastings Highlands joined with Chief Pat Hoover to announce the agreement to share Fire Administration between the two municipalities.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for both Bancroft and Hastings Highlands. The creation of a Joint Fire Service Administration will ensure the sustainability of our individual fire departments.” said Mayor Jenkins.
Spring Fire Season
The first of April 1st starts the Spring Fire Season. During this time between snow loss and the arrival of green leaves and grass can be a very dangerous time to set open air fires. Dry ground conditions and brisk spring winds can cause a fire to get out of control quickly. The Fire Depts. in North Hastings would like to remind you that many of the municipalities have regulations in effect governing open air burning. Please consult with your local fire department or municipal office before burning.
Landowners can be fined for a out control fire as well the costs to extinguish it.
Please consider the fact that burning is not the only choice, alternatives such as composting, mowing and mulching, chipping or removal to landfill can be the safest, and most beneficial options.
Thank you to all who came out to participate in the Workshop, your suggestions and comments are important in moving forward.
