The trees are budding and Halton Hills is ending its long winter hibernation.

The Glen Williams Community Association (GWCA) is welcoming the new season with its annual spring social and silent auction.

“We want an opportunity for residents to come and meet each other over refreshments,” GWCA chair Joan Griffin told HaltonHillsToday, noting many new resident have moved to the Glen over the last two years.

The fun will run from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. on April 21 in St. Alban the Martyr Anglican Church. Aside from socializing and enjoying some Glen trivia with local historian Mark Rowe, newcomers and longtime residents will get a chance to meet local elected representatives and hear about some of the GWCA’s initiatives - in particular, about the beautification and maintenance of local green spaces.

“The other priority is to present the draft plan for the year that the GWCA has created based on the responses to our 2024 residents’ survey,” Griffin said.

Traffic, parks and trails, development, community engagement and beautification are among the top priorities identified, according to the chair of the GWCA.

Meanwhile, many coveted items will be up for grabs in the event’s silent auction. They include:

  • Several one-of-a-kind creations by Williams Mill Creative Arts Studio
  • Family experience packages
  • A sailing trip on a 34-foot sailboat with Prosecco and snacks
  • A variety of themed gift baskets
  • A lambswool scarf from Sykes-Ainley Woolens
  • Children’s books by a local author
  • Gift certificates to local restaurants.

The event is free and open to the public. 

Proceeds from the silent auction will be used to support phase two of the Shelagh Law Parkette improvement project.
