Recently a short movie was filmed in the Hawthorne Village neighbourhood for MADD  (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) that will in the future be shown across canada in our schools to educate students about the dangers of impaired driving.

Laurie McCurlie  has asked if I could post their thank you letter below to the community on behalf of both MADD Canada and MJM Productions.

MADD Canada and MJM Productions would like to express our gratitude to all residents of Hawthorne Village for your patience and support during the filming of our movie on Louis St. Laurent Ave on October 25 & 26th. We appreciate your tolerance of the road closures and other disruptions as we filmed in your neighbourhood throughout both nights.

The scenes shot in your community included a car crash and it ‘s aftermath. Halton Police, EMS and the Milton Fire Dept all lent their support to this worthwhile project, and many Officers, EMS and Firefighters came out to act as themselves in the emergency response scenes. This as yet untitled film will be shown across Canada during the 2013-2014 school year to teach over a million Canadian students about the dangers of impaired driving.

We appreciate the support of all residents in the Hawthorne Village neighbourhood, especially those who live close to the road, and to the Emergency Responders who went above and beyond the call of duty to help us produce this life saving film.
