New Council Takes Office

Living in the Hills of Mulmurby Ruth Rindinella

The rolling hills, a sea of green
And farmers fields, mixed in between

A sunset sky, spread out across the land
And peaceful silence across the Mulmur sand

Out on the Main Tract, many friends walk the trail
As the leaves fall from the trees, creating a vale

Over at the Pub, friends and family meet
Everyone is welcome, just pull up a seat

A community separated by lots of land
doesn’t seem so big when we all need a hand

Neighbours still help each other when in need
Working together, planting the friendship seed

Around the corner, driving down a winding street
Our Mayor and Council are getting ready to meet

Each with their own sense of style and wit,
Working together, at the table they sit

With coffee in hand, and hands at the ready
their focus is intense, their gaze is steady

Business is at hand, Mulmur is their heart
All are quite eager and ready to start

Eyes are wide open, as they all share a grin
Our Mayor calls to order and the meeting begins

It’s Better in Mulmur, I’m sure you’ll agree
And our Council will lead us to be the best we can be

At the end of the day, and at the root of it all
Everyone loves Mulmur, Spring, Summer Winter and Fall

What’s Happening At The Museum

Sunday, October 28th  until December 23rd , 2018

Lifeactually – A Photography Exhibit – Photography by Pete Paterson

Life isn’t easy. We set goals, face challenges, overcome hurdles and try to hold onto our Vision. We keep going, because we each bring something to this world that no one else has in exactly the same way. Some of the greatest barriers people face are the stereotypes about what it means to have a developmental disability. These photographs remind us that there are more things that tie us together than hold us apart. They are about LIFE at its best – finding meaning and joy in our relationships, our work, our hobbies, and our communities. They are about the ways that we all contribute to making the world a stronger and more vibrant place.

Sunday November 11th,  10am

Opening of the Corn Flower Glass Gallery

In 2017, the Museum of Dufferin was successful in its application to the Canada 150 Infrastructure Program, and received a grant of $150,000 to be put towards a new and permanent Corn Flower Glass Gallery. Custom exhibit cases and state-of-the-art lighting show off the intricate details of the glass – each piece was hand-cut by talented craftsmen in the Toronto factory. The exhibition also features interactive displays, historic photographs of the Dufferin community, funky advertising materials and of course, the most rare, colourful and quirky Corn Flower glass (a toothpick holder shaped like a boot?!).

November 24 to December 9 /Tuesday to Saturday: 10 am to 5 pm / Sunday: Noon to 5 pm / Closed Monday

Mulmur Gets A New Look

Signage Refresh
Over a year ago the Economic Development Committee took on the task of developing and creating an updated, cohesive look & feel for the township.  The project was focused on refreshing our Gateway and Hamlet signage.

This task involved interviewing and consulting with many different folks making up 5 different consumer market segmentations within Mulmur to get a better understanding of what people thought and how people feel about the township.  These consumer groups were made up of residents, farmers, old timers, small businesses and weekenders.

Over a period of several months information and data was captured to create a base-line for a creative brief.  The creative brief was designed as a starting point to outline all the different perspectives.  From this exercise we discovered 2 main insights that tie our community together.
1.  The People
2. The Landscape

These insights then became the foundation or building blocks for our creative process.  The process was laid out before council and a presentation was at Town Hall.  It was important reflect our community values and beliefs, honour our past in the present, and create something meaningful and relevant.

Over the course of the next several months you will slowly see the new visuals roll-out as we update road signs in the new year.  Here are some examples of what you will see.

Did You Know…

That one of Mulmur’s best kept secrets is the beauty of the Dufferin County Forest.  In the 1930s council decided on a reforestation project.  Early European settlers cleared the land for crops, but after so many trees were removed, there was nothing to hold the light, sandy soil and mass erosion occurred by wind and water.  Hard to believe now, but the land was very barren and desert-like to the point where sand had to be plowed off Airport Road.  The Dufferin County Forest Main Tract consists of 607 hectares (1,501 acres) and was once home to a correctional facility that was built in 1970 and officially closed in 1996.  Today the Dufferin County Forest is a Mulmur gem used for a variety of recreational activities.  It is a great place to hike, bike, run and horseback ride.

Below is an image of Camp Dufferin – a forestry work camp for adults from the Guelph Correctional Facilty.

Chapter 10…October

Be thankful, take some time and watch the leaves turn.

October Fun Facts

  • Germany’s Oktoberfest originally began on October 17, 1810, the wedding day of King Ludwig I.
  • Dayight Savings Time ends every year at 2:00 A.M. local time on the last Sunday of October.
  • When deer are in a grey coat in October, expect a hard winter.
  • Much rain in October, means much wind in December
  • A warm October means a cold February
  • The first Thanksgiving feast in the U.S. was held in 1621 when the Pilgrims celebrated their harvest. However, the Americans did not invent Thanksgiving. English navigator Martin Frobisher held a celebration of thanks in 1578 in what is now Newfoundland as he had survived the long journey over the seas.

September Arrives In The Hills

Make It A September To Remember!

——————————————————————————————–
September Fun Facts

  • September comes from the Latin root septem-, meaning “seven,” because in the original Roman republican calendar September was the seventh month of the year rather than the ninth
  • In 1752 September only had 19 days.  The 3rd-13th were omitted in the change from Julian to Gregorian calendars.
  • The Harvest Moon is closest to the fall equinox. The Harvest Moon was named because it rises within a half-hour of when the sun sets. When farmers had no tractors, it was essential that they work by the light of the moon to bring in the harvest.

Calling All Teachers! Principals and Schools!

The Mansfield Outdoor Centre is thrilled to be kicking off another Back-To-School season!  Did you know that in the heart of Mulmur we have the leading Outdoor Education centre in curriculum-based education?  We teach on across 300 acres of fields, streams and forests to create life changes experiences.

In this day and age of technology and mobile devices, kids have lost touch with nature, and as a result are losing valuable skills.  Heads are down, swiping screens and pushing buttons sitting on couches…automation is stealing creativity, problem solving and social skills.  It affects the classroom and our communities.

We have a solution!  Join us!  We will help support you and rebuild the connective tissues that make education meaningful.  We want to help you create great kids and great communities!

Sign-up and register!  We have so many great programs to choose from.

Plus, it is only five minutes south of Highway 89.

At this free event, there will be guided and self guided hikes, activities for children, such as wildflower seed spreading and bird box building, and a barbeque. Plus the first 20 new members that sign up that day will receive a copy of the 29th edition Bruce Trail Guide, a 40 dollar value. The Splitrock property is a perfect place to showcase the conservation aspects of the BTC, and is a wonderful place to walk, with looped hikes through the exposed escarpment, wonderful views over the countryside from the cliff edge, and – of course – the unique 200 metre long Splitrock Narrows, a twelve foot deep chasm carved out of the rock.

Important Information

PSA – Anyone who is bitten by a tick should take the tic to the Public Health Unit in Orangeville because they can get the results almost immediately.

This is being sent out to the Dr’s in Dufferin County and will prevent people having to take the anitibiotics if the Doctor is not sure.  So the important information is to take the tick specimen to the Public Health Unit in Orangeville.

We also have fresh Woodfield Farm raised lamb in assorted cuts and if you are a burger conosuer, we recommend lamb burgers topped with lamb bacon and dressed with spicy tomato jam.

It will be a hot civic holiday and as a refresher we have prepared gazpacho soup made with Ontario field tomatoes, cucumbers, The Easy Farm peppers and an array of herbs and spices.

Marion has been baking a mountain of Mulmur cookies in.preparation for the weekend Creemore and Mulmur markets. These are a customer favourite made with buttery shortbread and chunks of Toblerine chocolate.

With our extra zucchini from the garden we will be featuring   chocolate zucchini loaf with a dark chocolate Toblerone ganache. These will be available throughout the zucchini season, as unlike anyone else, we seemed to have mastered growing this  particular vegetable. 😁

July Facts & The Mystery of the Full Buck Moon

  • July was named by the Roman Senate in honour of the Roman general, Julius Caesar, it being the month of his birth. Prior to that, it was called Quintilis.
  • Traditionally, we have called July’s full Moon the “Full Buck Moon.” This name comes from our Indigenous and Colonial past when the Moon was used to track the seasons. Bucks are growing new antlers at this time. July’s Full Moon was also known as the Thunder Moon, because thunderstorms are so frequent during this month.

Thank-you Mulmur!  Our Hottest Mulmur Day…Ever!

Saturday June 30

What a sweaty great day!  The humidex had it feeling like 45 but the breeze was steady!

Thanks to everyone for braving the heat and putting on the second annual Mulmur Day!  The Mulmur Community Events Team were up very early getting things ready, and it couldn’t have been better!  A fantastic pig roast made for excellent pork sandwiches and salads.  The fire department kept the beer safe on ice, and strawberries and whipped cream topped everything off.  It was great to see everyone out and look forward to seeing everyone again soon!

Whipped cream from the girls at Miller’s Dairy, Strawberries from Maple Grove Farm, and shortcake from Franca’s Home Baked Goods, (one of our vendors). She will also have some to sell if you don’t feel like baking your own. It also freezes well.

We will have chalk and old matchbox trucks and cars for the children to race down the hill. There are lots of picnic tables to sit and enjoy some food and the scenery…so come on out for some Sunday afternoon social time. Just another reason why it’s Better In Mulmur!

Christmas In July

The turkeys are here and growing and wondering whose table they will be on for the Thanksgiving feast. If you are interested in reserving a turkey or a duck, please let us know and we will  make sure you have one thing off of your future list.

There are still a few spots left for the cheese making course on July 10th, at the farm. If you are interested in attending send a note to Saskia, the cheese maker, at info@justsaycheese.ca to get details and sign up.

We have pigs ready to go to market and will be available in whole, half or quarters, for the freezer. Our pigs are heritage breeds and raised outdoors in a forest setting where they roam and root and are able to exhibit the natural instinctual behaviours  of a pig. The taste tells the tail.

If chickens are your favourite grill meat, our first batches of pastured chickens are here and available in whole roasters or as cuts.

The heat is full on but it’s cool in the farm store. We have fresh baking, Thursday through Sunday. If your craving a spinach bacon and cheese hand pie, come by for a quick snack to go. We are also serving up delicious locally roasted coffee. Raisin scones, chocolate chip or oatmeal walnut raisin cookies are part of the Friday line-up. Saturdays include cinnamon buns, fruit loaf, home made sausage rolls and freshly baked berry pies, perfect for one or two (if you want to share).

AND….If you haven’t got time to make jam, we have made it for you.  Choose from strawberry rhubarb or if you are feeling adventurous, carrot cardamom…..YUM!!!

See you at the farm store!

Dufferin County Museum Is Up To Something…

The Museum is preparing to open on Wed. August 1st with new exhibits and new experiences.

Between the mid 1800s and early 1900s, much debate surrounded the consumption of alcohol in Canada. While bootleggers tended to their hidden stills, local temperance enthusiasts met to discuss their anti-alcohol agenda. Unlike the United States, the prohibition of alcohol was less stringent in Canada. At no time was the entire country under prohibition. Instead, residents voted for laws restricting alcohol in their own regions, this was known as Local Option. Beginning in 1894, towns and townships in Dufferin County voted to go “dry”. As a rural community with traditionally conservative values, the majority of the county felt that alcohol should be strictly controlled. Of course, not everyone agreed…Join us on a journey as we bring you secret stills and stories from Dufferin County’s past.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

Down The Road and Around The Corner…

A Poem.

MUSHROOMS By Sylvia Plath

Overnight, very
Whitely, discreetly,
Very quietly

Our toes, our noses
Take hold on the loam,
Acquire the air.

Nobody sees us,
Stops us, betrays us;
The small grains make room.

Soft fists insist on
Heaving the needles,
The leafy bedding,

Even the paving.
Our hammers, our rams,
Earless and eyeless,

Perfectly voiceless,
Widen the crannies,
Shoulder through holes. We

Diet on water,
On crumbs of shadow,
Bland-mannered, asking

Little or nothing.
So many of us!
So many of us!

We are shelves, we are
Tables, we are meek,
We are edible,

Nudgers and shovers
In spite of ourselves.
Our kind multiples:

We shall by morning
Inherit the earth.
Our foot’s in the door.

Maudie.
Free Viewing April 18 at 1:30pm, Circle Theatre

Maudie is a 2016 English-language biographical film directed by Aisling Walsh and starring Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke. A co-production of Ireland and Canada, the film is about the life of folk artist Maud Lewis, who painted in Nova Scotia. In the story, Maud (Hawkins) struggles with arthritis, memory of a lost child, and a family that doubts her ability, before moving in with a surly fish peddler (Hawke) as a housekeeper. Despite their differing personalities, they marry as her art gains in popularity. The film was shot in Newfoundland and Labrador, requiring a recreation of Lewis’s famously small house.

It was selected to be screened in the Special Presentations section at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival and won a number of awards at other festivals. After festival screenings and wider releases, Maudie received positive reviews. It also won critics societies’ awards for Hawkins’ performance, seven Canadian Screen Awards, including Best Motion Picture, and three Irish Film & Television Awards, including Best Director.

The fact that the film was shot in Newfoundland was the subject of controversy in Lewis’ native Nova Scotia. Nevertheless, the popularity of the film sparked a resurgence of interest in Lewis’ art.
