On Saturday May 13th and Sunday May 14th, 2017 from 10 am to 5 pm, you will have the opportunity to visit acclaimed artists working in various fine craft and visual art mediums from Hamilton and the surrounding region.
This tour is nestled under the Niagara Escarpment in picturesque West Hamilton which has become a major destination for art in Ontario. Make a day of it and enjoy one of the local restaurants or cafes while you visit. A great way to spend Mother’s Day weekend! Admission is free!
Last year’s line-up includes 38 artists in 17 locations, from painters to potters, to sculptors and jewelers, to artists working with glass and mixed media and photography.

On Saturday, April 22nd we will be holding our Annual Spring Clean Up of the Rez, a.k.a. Highland Gardens Park, and the Bruce Trails.
There is work to be done and the more help we get the faster we can clean up the winter mess and turn our parks and trails into attractive and safe places for all of us to enjoy.
Please mark April 22nd(EARTH DAY) on your calendar and consider joining us once more on Saturday, April 22nd, for another Reservoir Park and Bruce Trail Spring Cleanup, from 9 am until noon. Why not bring along your family and friends and any new neighbours, as well!
We have been generously provided with a free Bin by Regional Waste Transit Inc., again this year.
The City of Hamilton will provide us with green and clear garbage bags and gloves, but you might want to bring your own work gloves, especially for the smaller children.
Before you start off, please drop by the Registration Table, at the corner of Hillcrest and Mountain Avenues, and sign in.

Mission Services relies on the “Fill a Bus, Feed a Family” Food Drive to keep its shelves at their Good Food Centre stocked for 2 months of the year. That means the Drive provides food for over 1600 families and households who visit during this time period. In fact the “Fill a Bus, Feed a Family” Food Drive is Mission Service’s largest community driven food drive collecting over 17,000 lbs of food each year. 2017 marks our 10th anniversary and the year that the Drive will surpass over 100,000 lbs collected since the Drive began.
