Need some rejuvenation following this long and lingering winter? This year, the Rotary Club of Acton turns 70 years old, and we would like to celebrate with you. Come join with friends and strangers at our Spring Gala, including dinner and auction. One of the premier annual social events in town, this year’s gala will once again be held at the Acton Town Hall Centre, 19 Willow Street, Acton. The evening starts at 5:30pm, on Friday, May 4, 2017, with tickets available for $60 per person.
So come and enjoy a fabulous tapas meal, prepared once again by the Everton Academy of Culinary Arts – we’ve changed the dishes, but as always, they will be delicious. Between servings, participate in our live auction, with that fabulous auctioneer, Doug Donaldson, encouraging your bids. And don’t miss out on our silent auction, or the chance to mingle with old and new friends. You can even take a chance on one of our many prize draws.
For more information or online ticket purchases, head to Rotary Club of Acton. Tickets can also be purchased at Acton Optical (519-853-5133), located on the southeast corner of Mill and Elgin Streets, or from any member of the Rotary Club of Acton.
And don’t forget, not only will you have a great time, all the funds raised go to supporting the local and international causes to which Rotary has been committed for 70 years.

Halton Hikes: Loops & Lattes
with a Foreword by singer-songwriter and Niagara Escarpment admirer Sarah Harmer
Want to reduce stress, spend time with friends and family, feel healthier and have fun? Then lace up a pair of walking shoes and hit the trails.
Building on the success of Caledon Hikes: Loops & Lattes, Nicola Ross’s latest hiking guide, Halton Hikes: Loops & Lattes, expands into new hiking territory.
Nicola describes 37 routes that will appeal to casual walkers as well as seasoned hikers. Her loops all begin and conveniently end at the same location, so there’s no need to drop a car or to retrace one’s footsteps. Ranging in length from 3.6 to 24.8 kilometres, each is accompanied by a detailed map, precise directions, loads of colour photos and a smattering of local lore.
Halton Hikes features routes in Oakville and Burlington, along the cliffs of the Niagara Escarpment near Campbellville, Milton, Acton, Georgetown and Glen Williams, and into the rural areas just across the border near Eden Mills, Rockwood, Erin, Cheltenham and Terra Cotta. If you live in or visit the Greater Toronto Area and the Golden Horseshoe, Halton Hikes: Loops & Lattes will provide you with days of enjoyment.
