The water fill stations provide access to free, potable water in public spaces and promote health and wellness in our community. Three Ultraviolet (UV) water purification systems were also installed at three of the most popular locations. “We are thrilled to have received this grant that emphasizes the importance of sustainable and healthy lifestyles in our region,” said Mayor David Evans. “On behalf of the Township of Tiny, I want to thank the Ontario Trillium Fund for their commitment to our community, and for making this project a reality”.

A Tiny Senior Moments

By Carol-Lynn Lepard, Senior Column Writer

Dec. 22, 2023 – For many of us, this week is an extension of the holidays. Many families are still spending time together and Boxing Day sales will run through the weekend, so we’re still busy. We may also be thinking about how we’re going to keep that New Year’s resolution to keep fit and healthy. For some, that means starting into the Township of Tiny’s winter activity programs – maybe relaxing Yoga, spirited Zumba ® or full-body exercise at Aging Backwards classes. Others will take a little longer to decide on an activity best suited to their needs, and our next column will focus on three programs offered free of charge that you can start at any time.

An overview of the Township of Tiny’s events for 2024 follows:

One of the most popular local events to dispel February blahs is the Winter Carnaval d’Hiver, which will be held Saturday, February 10 from 11 am – 2 pm at Perkinsfield Park (43 County Road 6 South, Tiny). This is a day that offers something for just about everyone. We don’t want to spoil the surprise, but some of the activities include family public skating – bring your own skates or borrow some for free – live performances by talented skaters and others, a snow tubing slide, lots of hot chocolate and cider, and a lunch to keep you fueled for fun. For more information, visit the website, www.tiny.ca , or call the Recreation Department at 705-526-4204 ext. 290.

Earth Week – April 14-20 Pretty much everyone is familiar with Earth Day, but not all of us know much about Earth Week. The week offers a longer opportunity for people in almost 200 countries to dedicate time and energy to helping solve environmental issues. The township’s activities and campaigns to promote positive action, from guided walks to local challenges, will be highlighted closer to the time.

National Volunteer Week – April 14-20 What could be more appropriate than turning the spotlight on the more than 150 volunteers who make such a huge impact upon our community and natural environment than celebrating their accomplishments at the same time as Earth Week? The Township will launch its annual National Volunteer Week campaign to increase local awareness of the important roles they play in improving the quality of life for us all.Programs, Activities & Events

Plans are already in the works to highlight special local celebrations throughout the year, including the following:

National Youth Week – May 1 – 7 celebrates youth and their active participation in the community.

Senior Symposium – June 4, hosted by the Township of Tiny’s Senior Advisory Committee, highlights opportunities to help local seniors enjoy good health, happiness and fulfillment.

Mayor’s Charity Golf Tournament – June 14, is an initiative to raise funds for local charitable organizations. Since its inception, the Golf Tournament initiative has raised over $436,000 to support services that improve our community’s health and wellness.

Pollinator Week – June 17 – 23 recognizes the importance of pollinators as part of a strong, sustainable community. The Township is designated as a Canadian Bee City through its involvement in preserving and supporting the survival of bees and their habitat.

Community BBQ – July 13 is THE local celebration of the year. Never-to-be-forgotten fun is had by all, enjoying the family fun zone, reveling in the live music, munching on burgers, hot dogs and much more. Local artisans will be on hand so you can shop for unique treasures and celebrate the creative talent in our community.

Movies in the Park – July 19, August 2 & 16. The Township will be hosting outdoor family movie nights again this summer. All movies are free of charge and registration is not required. Movies begin at dusk.

Farm Crawl – August 24. Guests tour different farms across Tiny, experiencing the rich agricultural history of the community and the importance of supporting local farmers and growers. Ticket prices and availability for this very popular event will be announced later.
