Non-Medical Fabric Face Masks
Reusable two ply, with a nose wire, fabric masks are available for free at the Milton Community Hall for Miltonvale Park residents who have returned their EMO survey (including those received last Fall/winter). Priority for masks is for seniors, if supplies become more limited. The EMO survey can be found and filled out at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/3MDK2VK?fbclid=IwAR0PW457OMjiC3UZnXOXiVdjW8bsrBApZDZfxA5EWa4YIZX3ni2Gxk3qCg4 or in the paper copy of the most recent newsletter. The electronic copy did not have space to ask if residents have any concerns about a possible second wave of COVID-19, so please feel free to note any suggestions or concerns anywhere there is space in the electronic survey.
Call the Council office 902 368-3090 or email [email protected] to check for availability for masks. There is usually someone at the hall M-F 8:30-5 p.m. during the summer. Child-size face masks can be made to order and will likely be produced in mid-August.
Drop in and Sew, Fabric Donations Welcome!
If you would like to donate your time and help us sew some masks, or wish to donate tightly woven cotton fabric, give us a call at 902-368-3090. We have sewing machines and supplies at the Milton Community Hall, and sewing could occur almost any time. There is also an opportunity for secondary students to participate in the Community Service Bursary program, by helping make masks.
And just a reminder that the Milton Community Hall has air conditioning…. and public wifi – if that helps entice you to any events
For the “Year in France” project, the municipality has purchased a “movies on demand” service for the next year from Criterion, so can show movies on the big screen at the Milton Community Hall. There will be regular showings of movies that have a connection to France, or some may entirely be in French…. suggestions are welcome!
We can also show other movies that are available if people are interested -let us know if you have a favourite!
