Thank you to all who attended last evening's The Commons: Meet the Candidates event.
Candidates in the new Pickering-Uxbridge riding were able to introduce themselves, outline the main objectives of their party, and answer questions.
The Pickering crests, located on the east and west faces of the central tower at the Central Library and City Hall, are being replaced with new, LED-backlit, pin-mounted, stainless steel crests, set on new masonry to match the rest of the building.
History of the Crest
The crest was designed to represent the municipality. The following list explains each aspect of the crest:
The Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hungers (OFAH) and the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR), together with many partners (including the Library!), are working to bring Atlantic Salmon back to Lake Ontario.
The Central Library will house a salmon hatchery in participation with this program.
The Pickering Public Library would like to extend an invitation to the Syrian refugees in our community. Please visit us to obtain a library card and to let us know about your needs. We have a translation service, if language is a barrier.
To Pickering residents, if you want to learn more about the Syrian crisis, sponsor a Syrian family, provide assistance or help to create a welcoming environment in the Durham region, please visit the Region of Durham’s web site.
We asked Pickering to come out a celebrate with us the Central Library's 25th Anniversary, and bring cake!
You came for live musical performances, free family activities, backroom tours and more, last Saturday as part of Pickering's Doors Open.
You also brought cakes, cakes of every size and description to be part of our Great Cake Showcase, and you voted your favourite.
Congratulations to Siani, who won the People's Choice award, see above.
To see more of the cakes, please visit our Facebook Page.
