August 4th, 2014 marks the 100th Anniversary of the beginning of Canada’s involvement in the First World War.  “Mississauga Remembers” is an ongoing Heritage Mississauga program that recognizes and acknowledges the contributions made by our community during wartime. Both at home and on the front, local men and women have served from as early as the War of 1812 until today. As the anniversary approaches of the First World War, much has been done to research and record the local fallen and the work done at home to support the soldiers and the war effort. Help us remember, preserve and share the story of Mississauga’s sacrifices in the First World War. The first in a series of exhibits, publications and presentations, the“Soldier’s Kit-Bag”exhibit examines the life of a soldier on the front.

 

 

This exhibit brings to life some of those items a local soldier would have carried in his “kit-bag” as well as a number of the gifts he may have received from home. This travelling exhibit will be located in libraries across Mississauga and at First World War commemorative events over the next four years.

The Friends of the Museums of Mississauga are pleased to announce another summer of great music “On the Verandah” at Benares Historic House.

Come early and enjoy the beautiful grounds of this magnificent house, wander the lawns, enjoy the flowers and the atmosphere of peace and serenity.

Every Friday evening we welcome a new musician or musical group; some love playing “On the Verandah” so much that they return season after season. This year we celebrate our 10th anniversary of these concerts and some of our musicians have been with us each year. We have a wonderful selection of music; something to suit all tastes. With thirteen concerts it is impossible to name them all, but we have a brass sextet, several folk singers, A Children’s Choir and a Youth Orchestra, a clarinet quartet, acoustic guitars, a jazz vocalist, a classical violinist, an award winning guitarist and more. You will hear music from Beethoven to Gershwin; from the 18 century to the 21st. Our musicians have performed around the globe and have won recognition and awards for outstanding concert performances.

Jane’s Walks are happening near YOU!

for the people, by the people. Jane’s Walk festival is taking place internationally
over the weekend of Friday May 2nd, Saturday May 3rd and Sunday May
4th across Canada and in cities around the world.

Walks are taking place near your neighbourhood. In particular, one is taking
place in taking place in Jack Darling Park on Saturday May 3rd. The walk begins

Who

City of Mississauga Forestry staff in partnership with BioForest Technologies Inc., a company that specializes in developing pest management strategies and tools, will provide

 

•             information to answer questions about the steps residents can take to treat Gypsy moth on private property

•             hands-on demonstrations

•             City update on proposed plan for combating this pest

 

What    

The European Gypsy moth is a pest found in many locations throughout North America. The caterpillar eats the leaves of trees which damages the overall health of the tree. Gypsy moth is most commonly found on species such as maple, elm, oak, willow, birch and aspen.  Gypsy moth will always be present in the City of Mississauga.  Treatment will not eliminate the Gypsy moth population but will reduce its population and the destructive loss of leaves on trees.

 

More Information          

Pre-registration is not required.  Participants will receive a free moth trap (one per household).   To learn more about Gypsy moth, go to mississauga.ca/gypsymoth or call 311 (905-615-4311 if outside city limits).

 

As Canada’s sixth largest city, Mississauga is home to 741,000 residents and 55,000 businesses, including 63 Fortune 500 companies with Canadian head offices or major divisional head offices. A diverse, progressive and award-winning municipality located on the shores of Lake Ontario in the heart of the Greater Toronto Area, Mississauga is “Leading Today for Tomorrow” by focussing on delivering services, implementing its Strategic Plan, delivering value for money and maintaining infrastructure.
