Sutton's The Link is opened

On November 12th, The Town of Georgina held their grand opening celebration for The Link, Georgina’s Community Connection Centre. Above, the Mayor cuts a very large ribbon with an even larger pair of scissors.

The Link is a former school the Town is repurposing into a community-creative hub that brings together four core partners: Georgina Arts Centre & Gallery, Hospice Georgina, Georgina Trades Training Inc., and Georgina Community Food Pantry. Under one roof, The Link, will deliver programs and services focused on health and wellness, arts and culture, youth engagement, recreation, job training, and more.
