Attention US Transfers

If you travel by land (car/bus/van) or via sea port (ferry) you may be able to cross the border with a passport card, which is cheaper than a passport book. For more information please visit the following page at the U.S. Department of State website.

Your U.S. dollar will be worth 20-30% more* than the Canadian dollar due to currency exchange rates. While many establishments accept U.S. cash, not all will do so. Some U.S. credit cards will automatically calculate the exchange rate without a foreign transaction fee; you may want to contact your card's customer service line to see what fee, if any, they charge.

For this venue to be affordable to the Church we need to utilize 50 or so Harbour Suites hotel rooms and have good participation at the catered seniors luncheon and family dinner and dance, all being offered at special rates.

We are pleased to announce that the Feast of Tabernacles 2017 will again be held in Midland, Ontario, Canada.

Last year we held “in-house” activities that were a huge success and will be repeated once more.

Midland is located on beautiful Southern Georgian Bay, only 90 minutes from Toronto and 30 minutes from Barrie.

The area has a natural blend of scenic landscapes, wildlife diversity and a picturesque harbor with waterfront trails and parkland. The spectacular fall colors should be at their best during the Feast. You can also visit several historic attractions that reflect the region’s rich cultures.

There is an array of shopping in the historic downtown, or a short drive to Barrie. For food lovers, there are local culinary delights and a variety of restaurants throughout the area; for those who would prefer to stay in, dining will be available at the onsite Library restaurant and will also offer in-room service.

One of the main reasons for returning to Midland is the warm and friendly welcome that we received over the last number of years. The Quality Inn is the premier full-service hotel in the Southern Georgian Bay area. It has an excellent remodeled ballroom with seating capacity for 500 people.

Accommodations include standard rooms as well as suites that come complete with a small refrigerator and a coffee maker. All rooms include free high-speed Internet.

Room rates start at $79 for the standard room up to $99 for a fireplace jacuzzi suite. Your room rate includes a hot breakfast at the onsite Atrium Café. The Atrium also provides a wonderful setting for interaction and relaxation as you connect with other spiritual members of the family.

Other amenities at the Quality Inn include a heated indoor swimming pool, hot tub and sauna for total relaxation.

For those who need alternative housing, there are also cottages and bed-and-breakfasts in the area. Festival activities once more center on the family, beginning with a meet-and-greet night, seniors brunch, Bible studies, family day, games night, variety night and much more.

For those who have not yet experienced the quaint little town of Midland we hope this will be the year you do; for those who have attended in the past, we invite you to try it again for the first time.

For further information on the area, please go to www.southerngeorgian.bay.on.ca. The website for the host hotel can be found at www.qualityinnmidland.ca.

Location of Services: 924 King St., Midland, Ontario (at the corner of Hwy. 12).

First Service: 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 4.

Taxes: 13 percent for guest rooms.
