The Homecoming Countdown Is On!
The countdown is definitely on for Mildmay-Carrick Homecoming 2013, with it only a year away!!! The committee has been meeting monthly and the last regular meeting before a summer break was held on June 25, 2012 at Harley's Pub & Perk.

The meeting opened with the introduction of Heather Weber as the Sponsorship Collection Committee chairperson. Heather will be out and about contacting anyone (businesses and individuals) who may be interested in being a sponsor for this fantastic community event.

A presentation was then heard from the Special Events Committee and the Teen Committee, outlining the various events they are planning and the tentative schedule of these events. Sounds like a fun-filled weekend is being planned for our young people to look forward to and enjoy! 

Committee Reports were given with ideas and updates given, including a discussion on which parades our float could participate in over the summer. It has been decided not to have an official Homecoming Campground, however Accommodations Chair Len is checking into the many different options available for those visitors who may need a place to stay.

Exciting news! Tickets for the New Year’s Eve Dinner & Dance, or dance only, will be available starting on Friday, August 3rd at Surroundings and Ship2Shore or by calling Carolyn Borth at 519-367-5519.Souvenirs will also be available soon...the logo looks great and Chair Connie and her committee are getting ready to set up shop and start selling once the souvenir store location has been finalized.

Lottery Draw Chair Jackie Danko gave a report on the fundraising draw for amazing prizes, including a travel voucher, diamond necklace, BBQ and Mildmay Business Dollars, which will take place on August 5, 2013, with an early bird draw for a leather recliner at the kick-off dance. These bright orange tickets are now on sale and available from committee members and at various Mildmay businesses. Please support this awesome draw!
