‘Scarf’ tra­di­tion con­tin­ues in Tburg Satur­day

Tillsonburg News - - FRONT PAGE -

Con­sid­er­ing the colder tem­per­a­tures this week, the tim­ing may be nearly per­fect for Talk Till­son­burg’s an­nual Scarf Day in Till­son­burg on Satur­day.

Vol­un­teers will be leav­ing scarves, toques, mit­tens and some chil­dren’s win­ter wear in front of The Till­son­burg Town Cen­tre mall, 200 Broad­way, on Satur­day, Jan. 12 at 8 a.m., each with the same mes­sage at­tached. “If you are cold, I am warm! Take me down and take me home!”

It will be the sixth ‘Scarf Bomb­ing ’ in Till­son­burg, a tra­di­tion started five years ago by Talk Till­son­burg ’s Cathy Ryan and friends. Most of the items were do­nated, in­clud­ing some hand­made, but some were also pur­chased for the event.

Snow squalls hit some ar­eas of south­ern On­tario Wed­nes­day, and snow squall watches were is­sued Thurs­day as frigid air moved into the re­gion. While it could be milder next week, Till­son­burg ’s Satur­day and Sun­day highs are ex­pected to be -5 C and -4 C ac­cord­ing to The Weather Net­work, fall­ing to -9 and -11 C overnight.
