Personal Message from Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie Dear Friends, On behalf of the great City of Mississauga and Members of Council, I would like to recognize all the dedicated and tremendous volunteers and community leaders for helping to organize the 15th annual Paint the Town Red Canada Day celebrations, in our beautiful waterfront community of Port Credit. 2018 marks the 151st anniversary of Confederation and our country’s founding, which is an important milestone in our nation’s proud history. Since then, Canada has grown to become a globally-respected country that safeguards and embodies the unwavering values of peace, order and democracy - here at home and in peacekeeping efforts undertaken around the world. Paint the Town Red is a much anticipated and cherished event enjoyed by residents from all parts of our City, and in communities throughout the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area. As we gather to celebrate the birth of our nation, let us reflect on how blessed we are to call ourselves Canadians. Today and every day, I encourage residents to demonstrate compassion and kindness to those in our community who are in need of our support. Once again, I offer my very best wishes to the organizers and participants who have all come together for the 2018 Paint the Town Red Canada Day celebrations! Happy Canada, Mississauga!

Bonnie Crombie, MBA, ICD.D Mayor, City of Mississauga

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CANADA! Welcome to Paint the Town Red Port Credit’s Canada Day Celebrations! 2018 commemorates our 15th Anniversary of this wonderful event. As Canadians, we have a lot to celebrate and be grateful for. We are the 2nd largest country in the world, a country of compassionate, kind, and caring citizens. Canada ranks amongst the highest in economic freedom, education, and quality of life offering individuality, opportunity, harmony, and inclusion. We should all be proud to be Canadian. Come to Port Credit and join us as we proudly celebrate Canada’s birthday in Mississauga’s most picturesque and vibrant community. What’s Canada Day without a parade? Mississauga’s matriarch, Hazel McCallion will be the 2018 Grand Marshall for the Paint the Town Red Hazel McCallion Canada Day Parade starting at 11am, followed by our opening ceremonies and the cutting of the nation’s largest Canadian flag birthday cake at La Villa Bakery.    Memorial Park will be buzzing with non-stop entertainment on our main stage. Take the family to visit the Kidzone for inflatables, crafts, interactive entertainment and more. Vendors, food trucks, and a licensed beer area in Memorial Park with bar service provided by the Mississauga Credit Valley Lions club and Paint The Town Red Port Credit. The Queenscorp Fireworks show launches shortly after 10pm. Visit www.paintthetownred.ca for a complete list of entertainment and activities. Passion, generosity, and community spirit are a few of the characteristics behind our dedicated Paint the Town Red volunteers. People who work tirelessly to bring you Port Credit’s Canada Day celebrations. On behalf of the Board of Directors, THANK YOU to all of our volunteers for everything you do, for without you, none of this would be possible. We would really appreciate it, when you see a volunteer, to take a moment and say thanks. After all, it is the Canadian thing to do.   As a non-profit community event, none of these festivities would be possible without the generous, dedicated support of our sponsors and our community partners. Some of these supporters include the City of Mississauga, Port Credit Community Foundation, Port Credit BIA, and our government funding partner Heritage Canada. Please take a moment to check our list of sponsors online or in the park, and whenever possible, support the businesses that year after year help to bring you great community events. Most of all I would like to thank my wife, Angela Bozzo, my children Michael and Daniel for their hard work and support in order to make this event possible. Happy Birthday Canada! We hope you will join us for the 15th Paint the Town Red Port Credit’s Canada Day celebrations.

If your situation requires a real estate professional who listens and understands your situation, lets have a conversation.

LYNN STILL Realtor

Are you living in the

RIGHT - SIZE HOME for your lifestyle? No matter what life transition we are in, many of us are asking if we should consider a different size or type of property that would better service our needs now and in the future.

For example: Millennials have different requirements than Baby Boomers, and Seniors are considering how their lives may change in the years to come and how that will affect their lifestyles.

SOME CONSIDERATIONS MIGHT BE: • Redefining what is important to you. • Right-sizing may be the path to creating a lifestyle that uniquely fits what your hearts desire. • Sometimes even more important than square footage of a house is the layout and location.

lynnstill.com

• Baby Boomers are seeing children leaving the family home and are wondering if it makes sense to continue living in a large property. • Perhaps you are looking at redeeming some equity from your family home to enable you to embark on a new venture. • Many Baby Boomers want to travel more and not have to worry about the upkeep of an empty large family home. • You may be recently retired and looking at planning the next steps in your life what does that look like to you? • Perhaps you are worried about aging parents. How long can they continue to live in their current homes safely and happily? There are many, many different options to consider and I will assist you every step of the way with my extensive knowledge. In addition, I have excellent preferred services, such as: de-cluttering, staging, renovating, moving, legal, whatever you need to make the transition to your right sized home go smoothly.

When considering what is the Right-Size home for you in the next stage of your life,

DEDICATION TO THE GREAT JIM TOVEY

community tribute was held for Jim Tovey by friends and family at the Small Arms Society, on June 2nd, after his tragically passing away at the age of 68 in January. Jim’s best friend, Robert MacAskill, planned the dynamic tribute and introduced the many people who shared memories of Jim. Video, live music performance and kind words were made for a heartfelt afternoon honoring Jim’s impact on our community. Jim was elected in 2010 as Ward 1 Councillor in the City of Mississauga, serving for 6 years. In that short time no other politician has made such an impact in a community and the environment with his legacy being the transformation of the Lakeview Waterfront Connection. The Credit Valley Conservation Board of Directors announced the decision to name the new Lakeview Conservation Area after Jim. The Lions Club presented Jim’s wife with the prestigious Melvin Jones Award for his exemplary accomplishments. Jim would have said, “How cool is that?” He will be deeply missed.

The Mississauga Waterfront Festival forms an important part of the cultural fabric of our wonderful City.

Our Sponsor a Child program is supporting 25 Social Service Agencies and Community Outreach programs in Mississauga. This insures the inclusion and opportunity to join in and enjoy the Carnival Rides, as well as a free meal on site. The tremendous success, growth and expansion can be attributed to remarkable sponsors like Ristorante Aielli, who have generously hosted our annual kick off since our inception. The Port Credit BIA has been extremely instrumental in our continued success. Please check out all of our sponsors on our website and support them, as they are the reason we can offer this event with free admission. Our support has come from many wonderful people in the community, such as our Former Mayor Chancellor Hazel McCallion, (our Honourary Chair) M.P.P. Charles

Sousa, who has always been a big advocate of community events, our City Mayor Bonnie Crombie and our late beloved Councillor Jim Tovey, whose continued belief in the arts helped make this all possible. We share a wonderful bursary program, in aid of students, with Metalworks Institute through the generous collaboration of the owner Gil Moore, who has become one of our greatest sponsors and partners. There is something for everyone on Mississauga Waterfront Festival Weekend. On Saturday and Sunday, kids can enjoy an interactive Sci-Tech Dome, Monkey Movers Gym Bus, Kiddie Zooms, try their hand at Pottery, Rock Climbing, Face Painters, have their photo taken with characters from PAW PATROL, Hotel Transylvania and so much more!

ST. STEVEN’S ON THE HILL SPRING FLING

It was a perfect sunny day for St. Stephen’s on the Hill’s Annual Garage Sale, held on May 5th. Every nook and cranny in the church, as well as the expansive lawn, was filled with bikes and sports equipment, plants, baked goods, furniture, household wares, jewellery, clothes, toys and so much more. The proceeds from the sale helped St. Stephen’s on the Hill maintain their programs, such as their Junior and Youth Choir, as well as many local community outreach programs here and around the world. The Girl Guides held a BBQ to help support their UK trip. No one left empty handed!

aya Charbin, a recent award winner at the Marty’s, showcased her SS18 collection on May 23rd, in Mississauga, at the beautiful Harding Estate. The fashion show, which was more of a gala, brought together over 150 fashionable ladies to a night of fun and glamour. The theme was Summer Dream, which was a literal inspiration for Maya, after the long winter we endured. The designer is starting to establish herself well in the Mississauga fashion scene especially with dressing her city’s Mayor and having her in attendance at the show as well. For this collection, Maya allured her audience into a world of pastel hues and dainty denim pieces, a kind of celebration fit for fairies. It was a beautiful day with the venue decked in flowers, the tent with runway transformed into a garden and the lake for backdrop made for a truly memorable experience.

SCHOOL LIFE CLARKSON

away. Now I’m near the end of my first year at Clarkson and the school feels like home. The second-half of the school year gave us the most magical time of the year, Cancer Drive.

We are proud to hear that Clarkson Secondary School has been awarded the Premier’s Award for Accepting Schools. The award recognizes the extraordinary efforts of just ten schools throughout the province. Clarkson’s team of students, teachers and the school’s admin team shared compelling ideas to create a climate that was inclusive and accepting of everyone in the school’s community.

For the lead-up to Cancer Drive, students were encouraged to wear a specific colour to recognize a type of cancer that still affects us. On the Thursday, we had a Camp Ooch representative come to the school to talk about what Camp Ooch does for kids and how much our donations help. On the Friday of the lead-up week, we welcomed our feeder schools to the SAC Carnival and BBQ. It was a fun afternoon, full of good food, fun inflatables and dunking teachers.

SECONDARY SCHOOL

When reading about the Premier’s Award for Accepting Schools on the Ontario Ministry of Education web page, the site notes Clarkson’s focus on overall wellness. For example, Clarkson provided a Mental Health Awareness Week (May 7-11) where students relaxed while engaging with the activities that took place during the week. Some of the activities that took place were bath bombs, peaceful yoga, meditation, Zumba and Paint Lunch. We also had St. John’s Ambulance therapy dogs come in for the students and staff, so that they could reduce some stress. Additionally, Charger’s in Charge Day (CICD) at Clarkson is an opportunity for students to promote inclusivity and equity by celebrating diversity within the school. For the 2017-2018 school year, Clarkson students chose “Diversity is Power” as a theme for the year. Our school also received a $5,000 “Dare to Dream” grant, to turn an office into a wellness space. The room is made especially for the students and staff for school-wide activities, such as yoga, workshops and lunchtime “Mindful Mondays.” The mindfulness room has a gorgeous mural of a lotus flower and has a plant wall, which was created by students here at Clarkson. It is incredible having our school, Clarkson, receiving the Premier’s Award for Accepting Schools. From Chargers in Charge Day to our Mental Health programs and activities, we have truly made a huge impact on our community. BY KRUPA PATEL A YEAR IN REVIEW This year at Clarkson has been a great one. As a grade 9 student, I was intimidated going into Clarkson for the first time, however, everyone was so helpful and kind, which took the nervous butterflies 44

To kick off Cancer Drive, we started with Clarkson’s Annual Milk Chug. Principal Zammit and Mr. Kontos participated along with many students from all grades. On the second day, there was also a dodgeball buyout. It was nice to see so many grades playing on teams with each other and having friendly competition. The third day’s theme was beach day, which included karaoke and leg waxing. The fourth day of Cancer Drive gave us decades day, with the activities including an art auction and the CAA’s annual mud run. The conditions for the mud run were a bit cool but it was still a fun event. The course was very muddy, yet I ran it three times. I will definitely do this event every year, rain or shine. The final day of Cancer Drive included tricycle races and the wrap up assembly that had us pie our wonderful teachers. The good sports this year included Mr. Russell, Mr. Cowan, Mr. Arduini, Ms. Garlock, Ms. Boruvka, Mr. Prosser, Ms. Gonzales-Fadel, Mr. Sembay, Principal Zammit, Mme Héneault and for the first time, Mr. Kontos. Our very own Mr. Grover even decided to participate in the head shaving fundraiser. Clarkson is a school where there’s no such thing as being too young or too inexperienced for real world education. Everyone here, including teachers, are learning every day and that’s what makes this school so special. BY KENDRA JOHNSTON


LORNE PARK

SECONDARY SCHOOL All the best to the Mississauga community for a warm and wonderful summer of 2018 from the staff, students and parents of Lorne Park Secondary School. We have much to celebrate from a very successful 2017-2018 school year. We are very proud of our excellence in academics, with more than half of our students achieving honours in each semester and an amazing number of students achieving an average of 95% or above! Many of our Grade 12 students are off to some of the best post-secondary programs in the country and some traveling internationally to further their studies. We are very proud of our excellence in athletics that included 9 teams and approximately 200 athletes advancing to OFSSAA. We also had multiple students receive athletic scholarships to post-secondary institutions that include Queen’s, Waterloo, Ottawa and Seton Hall in the United States. We are very proud of our excellence in the Arts, that included our Senior Band winning a silver medal at both the regional and the national competitions at Music Fest 2018. Our drama program entered 4 productions into the Ontario Drama Festival and had one production advance to the Central Ontario Regional Finals. Finally, our greatest achievement in the Arts this year was our production of Grease: The Musical, which we performed for approximately 1000 audience members over 5 performances. If you are interested in supporting our Arts program, please donate to our Red Band Jacket fundraiser, which can be found at our website lpspartans.ca We are very proud of our student leadership programs that include more than a dozen student leadership clubs and highlighted by our Model United Nations Team competing in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver. Lastly, we celebrated our tradition of excellence at our 60 Year Anniversary celebration, on June 16. We look forward to sharing more great news with you next year! Have a wonderful summer.

STREETSVILLE HIGH SCHOOL

With only one month left until two glorious months of summer vacation, excitement flows through the halls. The past few months have been full of fun events and these festivities continue in the month of May and June. Streetsville Secondary School’s Interact club, hosted its annual community garage sale on May 5th. The cafeteria was overflowing with items to be sold and the school raised a total of two thousand

dollars to be donated to the Dare Arts First Roots program. This program supports at-risk indigenous youth in remote communities in northern Ontario. This event would not have been so successful without the help of Rotary, which hosted a charity barbeque. The generous donations from local businesses also played a large role in the event’s astounding success. In order to spread awareness and support for the victims of bullying, Streetsville Secondary School put together their annual Pink Week. The students showed up to school wearing pink and the Tiger Leadership Council set up multiple sales and events for the students to take part in. Pink lemonade, pink cake pops and pink t-shirts were sold throughout the week. Staff and students enjoyed the week of awareness and it culminated with a Pink Week barbeque. Hot dogs, cotton candy and various other goodies were sold at the barbeque. With the help of Metro and Superstore’s generous donations of hot dog buns, this event was a success. The cafeteria was teeming with students as they participated, supporting this hugely important cause. The wait until the end of the school year is causing a vast mixture of emotions to surface in the students, but these mixed feelings are even more intense for the graduating class. They have only one month left before they must say goodbye to the school they love. The arrival of the annual Grad Breakfast makes this approaching departure all too real for the grade twelves. It was a beautiful morning full of friends and delicious food. That same afternoon, the graduating class gathered on the school’s field to participate in their annual Grad-a-palooza. Various blow-up obstacle courses and challenges were set up under the clear blue sky. The graduates’ beaming smiles were bright enough to put the glorious sun to shame but underlying it all was the sadness of getting ready to leave that which they have come to love. A major topic of discussion at Streetsville Secondary School is the upcoming sixtieth reunion. The reunion will took place on June 2nd at the school. Hundreds of alumni, as well as former and current staff members and distinguished members of the school community, gathered at the school to celebrate sixty years since the school’s opening. It was a blast, with decade rooms where former students got the chance to catch up with their former classmates. Sporting events, as well as food, drinks, and entertainment were also at the reunion. Streetsville Secondary School students also be participated in the Bread and Honey parade, as a way to commemorate the school’s sixtieth anniversary. For additional info, the school can be contacted at 905-826-1195. Do not hesitate to visit txhe website at www.streetsvillesecondary.com or follow them on Twitter @StreetsvilleSS. BY AMBER FOLEY
