Haliburton is hosting a special flag-raising ceremony this morning. Yesterday was World Autism Day, and so at 9:00am the county will be raising the Autism Ontario flag, in front of the municipal building. World Autism Day aims to increase understanding and acceptance of autism spectrum disorder.

This year marks the ninth annual World Autism Day, after being designated by the United Nations in late 2007. Everyone is welcome at this morning’s flag raising event.
