Maureen Trenkler was a community champion who was always looking for ways to bring the community together. Unfortunately, she left us much too early. Please join us for the 1st Annual Festival of Floats, a free community event in celebration of Maureen’s life and community spirit, on Friday, December 9, 2022 from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. at Kilbride Park (behind Kilbride Public School). Chat with neighbours and friends, and enjoy refreshments. Please consider entering a float of your design in the stationary ‘parade’ and reserve your float spot by emailing: festivaloffloats@gmail.com. View the event flyer, visit the Facebook Page, or contact Tina or Helen for more information. We look forward to seeing you at the park!
