It's Canada's 150th birthday and the Halton Hills Chamber of Commerce is challenging the residents and businesses of Halton Hills to show their national pride by flying the Canadian flag on July 1.
Imagine flags flying on porches, lawns, garages, parks, business and farm mailboxes - anywhere they can be seen from the street! It will be historic!
Garden Flags will be available at selected locations beginning in May.
A $2 donation is welcome for each flag.
Flag locations include:
*Halton Hills Chamber of Commerce
*Downtown Acton BIA
*Halton Hills Public Libraries - Acton & Georgetown Branches
*Downtown Georgetown Farmers Market
Garden flags are Canadian Flags, 18" wide x 9"" tall attached to a 3 foot dowel. Great for planting in your garden or pot.
REGISTER YOUR CANADIAN FLAGS! 900+ and counting!
ALL Canadian Flags count toward this challenge - not just the ones purchased from us! Visit haltonhillschanada150.ca to register your flags!

To celebrate Canada's 150th birthday, the Georgetown Choral Society is hosting a special concert. Canada-150 Eh?! is a celebration of 150 years of Canadian music. The concert takes place on Saturday, May 6th at 7 PM at the Georgetown Christian Reformed Church. Adult tickets are $20 and can be purchased on their website .
The Georgetown Choral Society has delighted audiences with their music since 1971.
Under the direction of A. Dale Wood, the Choir has approximately 100 members, and performs at a level normally associated with professional groups. The choir performs a mixed genre of musical works and has performed at such locations as Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto. We have also performed in Holland, England and Ireland.
We perform two major concerts per year, usually repeated on two consecutive evenings. We also participate every year in Remembrance services in November as well as perform in benefit concerts.
Small groups from the choir are also available to perform at various community events, particularly caroling at Christmas time.
