Best wishes for a happy holiday season!
The Council office is closed for the holidays until Tuesday, January 3rd. If you need to get in touch, please reach out by email to [email protected] as the phones may not be monitored regularly. The hall still has lots of Covid Rapid Test Kits, if anyone is in need. It doesn’t look like anyone will be needing to borrow snowshoes before the office is open again, according to the weather forecast.
Coffee Club will resume on Friday, January 6. The next Yoga classes will be on Tuesday, January 3rd – Mat at 9:00 a.m. and Chair Yoga at 10:30 $6 for Miltonvale Park residents and $7 for non-residents.
Exercise classes return on Monday, January 9 at 9 a.m. and if you are making a New Year’s resolution to get more active – there is space available in both yoga and exercise classes -and remember that all Miltonvale Park residents can try one yoga class for free.

Thanks to all those who helped with the Milton Community Hall during the recent community turkey supper. We appreciated all the help getting the meals out 24 hours early due to the storm that was expected. The next Community Meal will take place on Thursday, January 5 and will be turkey vegetable soup, with an alternate choice of squash soup. Take-out suppers will be available from 5-5:45 p.m. while people will be able to eat-in at 6:00 p.m. Delivery can be available within Miltonvale Park, if necessary. There are 125 free meals available and preference will be given to Miltonvale Park residents. Please register at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/QSYHSST -and you can also sign up to help out there as well. For more information, contact the hall at 902-566-3154 or [email protected]
These meals are funded by the Island Community Food Security Initiative, which also just provided the Milton Community Hall with additional funding so they can distribute food boxes over the winter.
