Flags lowered

The Town of Tillsonburg has lowered flags at all municipal facilities in honour of the passing of Brenda Carroll. Brenda served on Council for eight years in the 1990s, and again in 2014 when she was appointed to fill a five-month vacancy. She also held the role of mayor for seven months in 2000. Our hearts are with Brenda’s family and friends at this time.
