Your support ensures Canada never forgets
The autumn weather is slowly setting in, and the Remembrance period is almost here. It’s an important time to stop and think about the sacrifices Canada’s Veterans have made for us, and plan ways you can continue to give back throughout the coming year, like volunteering for the Poppy Campaign or other activities at our local Branch, Dundas Valley Branch 36.

Dundas Community Services (DCS) is organizing the second straight COVID-19 impacted fall community food drive for Dundas Salvation Army Children and Family Services food bank on SATURDAY SEPT 25th.
Organizers are asking people to call 905-627-5461 to sign up for a route. The one-day effort has typically required about 200 volunteers driving the prepared routes and picking up donations left outside homes.
Dundas residents are asked to put their donations of non-perishable food items, with expiry dates later than 2021, at their front door or porch around 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 25. Volunteers start their routes at 10 a.m. and will pick up groceries, but refrain from knocking on doors.
THANKS FOR HELPING OUR COMMUNITY!
Please on behalf of volunteer groups like ours take the time to complete the survey below. A Seniors Centre in Dundas is something we all would like to have. Maybe enough replies on this survey will help us to achieve this goal. Thanks.
The Recreation Master Plan will evaluate a wide range of service and facility types, including outdoor recreation amenities, indoor recreation facilities, and recreation programs and services to help identify needs and priorities across the City of Hamilton in the next 10 to 20 years.
Your input will help the City understand the services that Hamiltonians need. This survey is intended for Hamilton residents aged 16 years and older. Please only complete one survey per household. It should take between 10 and 15 minutes to complete.
After an unprecedented absence, we cannot wait to come together once more for the inspiring communal experience of live orchestra music. We are overjoyed to share with you the details of the first half of our 21-22 Season.
Tickets for these concerts go on sale on Friday, September 10 at 10am. Be sure to get your tickets - seating is limited!
