Monday's Music & Movement moved to Old School

Due to an outbreak at Centennial Place, Monday's Music & Movement class will take place at the Old Millbrook School, 1 Dufferin Street.  Sorry for any inconvenience!

Music & Movement class is a free drop-in program for children under the age of 5 and their parents/caregivers.  Two wonderful volunteers run the sessions, which include song, moving to the music, and lots of fun!

Earth Day at the Old School!

Did you know that Millbrook has an Earth Day event each April to celebrate the environment?  A small extremely commited group of volunteers has been planning earth-friendly festivities in our lovely village for years (decades?!).  Past activities at these family-friendly events have included canoe rides on Baxter creek, tree planting, scavenger hunts, guided hikes, singing, eating and much more.  

Please join us on Sunday April 26th at the Old Millbrook School for the 2015 Earth Day celebration which will include:


12-12:30: Nature photography workshop for kids


12:30:  Medd's Mountain hike on the gorgeous Millbrook Valley Trails, led by Millbrook Time's nature columnist Glen Spurrell

1:30:  Planting a children's Earth Day garden 

2:00 pm:  Earth day cupcakes

This will also be the location and the place to collect your new and environmentally friendly rain barrel!  Please note that rain barrels must be ordered in advance!  You can order your barrel here at www.rainbarrel.ca/millbrook and proceeds will benefit the Family Centre!

Thank you!

Thanks to everyone who attended our fabulous Oktoberfest Fundraising event!  The evening raised more than $2,500 for the Family Centre - much-needed money that will stay in our community and help support local families!

Congratulations to Julie Dodds, the lucky winner of the 50/50 draw and to all the people who got great deals at our incredible silent auction.  Huge thanks go to all of the many companies and individuals who donated items for the silent auction, and thanks too to the Legion for hosting us.
