Tim Horton Kid Zones in Caledon

October 22, 2014

Caledon Parks and Recreation skating program launches “Tim Horton Kid Zones”

The generous support of Tim Horton’s in Bolton has helped Caledon’s parks and recreation department provide skate aids to help preschool-age children feel comfortable on the ice. The Bolton donation added 40 skate aids to the town’s inventory.

“Across the country, Tim Horton’s plays a key role in countless community events,” said Brad Stafford, franchise owner. “And, personally, Liz and I are proud to be able to help Caledon’s preschoolers learn this quintessential Canadian sport.”

As well, this partnership with the Bolton Tim Horton’s has made it possible to launch the Tim Horton Kid Zones for young skaters at all of the public skate sessions in the four town arenas. The Kid Zone is a sectioned-off area of the rinks where young skaters can feel comfortable learning skills in an interactive, fun environment.

“As this community continues to grow, and the need for community-based recreational programming rises, partnerships like this become even more valuable,” said Mayor Marolyn Morrison. “We are thankful to Brad and Liz, and Tim Horton’s, for their support and help in meeting a need in our community, and we will continue exploring opportunities to work with our business community in delivering even more services.”

To view the entire public skating schedule, including holiday skate times, visit the town’s website at www.caledon.ca and type “fall public skate” in the search bar. For Learn to Skate programs, view the town’s fall and winter recreation guide by following the “Parks and Recreation” link on the town’s home page.

Town of Caledon 2014 advanced voter turnout strong to date; More advance voting opportunities to come

In the Town of Caledon, the first two advanced voting opportunities have led to strong voter turnout. Percentages shown below are based on “Count”, or number of eligible voters in the Ward(s). A total of 3.52% of eligible voters have already placed their votes.

Ward Count Votes to date Turnout
