2020 Milton Rotary Online Auction

The pandemic has forced everyone to re-think and re-evaluate how to operate, how to survive as a business or organization and most importantly how to thrive. “For Milton Rotary, the year got off to a rocky start in terms of fundraising with the cancellation of our annual Denim and Diamonds Spring Gala,” says Rod McLachlan, Milton Rotary public relations director.

With a commitment to aiding and focusing on Milton youth, projects and programs with decades of historical success were suddenly at risk. But fortunately for the local charitable service organization, one long-time fundraiser is well positioned to stem the bleeding – the annual Rotary Online Auction, says McLachlan. This year’s auction runs from November 7-21 at www.RotaryOnlineAuction.ca

Milton Culture Days Goes Virtual

For the past eight years, Arts Milton has hosted Milton Culture Days. On the last weekend of September each year, in partnership with the Town of Milton and hundreds of local Activity Organizers, Arts Milton has opened the doors of the FirstOntario Arts Centre Milton to thousands of community members. Together they have enjoyed a wide selection of free arts and culture activities.

In 2020, it was clear that this type of gathering was not going to be possible. But Arts Milton did not disappoint Miltonians! This year’s Milton Culture Days consisted of 80 activities over a four-week period from September 25 – October 25. Offerings included a mix of outdoor on-site events, pre-recorded activities, livestreamed workshops and self-guided challenges.
