FREE TAX CLINICS

Every Friday in March and April, we will have free income tax clinics at our office at 67 Industrial Drive in Almonte. The free clinics are targeted at families and persons of modest income. For more information read the poster from Lanark Community Programs. 

NOMINATE YOUR GOOD NEIGHBOUR!

We all know someone who is a good neighbour – that special someone in your community who helps a senior or an adult with a disability take out their garbage or shovel their walkway, who welcomes newcomers to their neighbourhood, who takes someone their favourite pie “just because”, or who takes the extra time to make sure a shut-in is well.

We have 2 pairs of tickets to the Folkus concert in April to give away to a good neighbour you nominate!

MCS is inviting the community to send in a good neighbour nomination by April 14th, either by dropping in to the MCS office at 67 Industrial Drive in Almonte and filling out a ballot, or emailing your nomination ballot  to  info@themills.on.ca. Name, contact information, a description of why they are a good neighbour, and your name should all be included.
