Georgina (Canada 2011 Census population 43,517) is a town in south-central Ontario, and the northernmost municipality in the Regional Municipality of York. It forms part of the northern boundary of the Greater Toronto Area and is situated on the southern shores of Lake Simcoe. Although incorporated as a town, it operates as a township, in which dispersed communities share a common administrative council. The largest communities are Keswick, Sutton and Jackson's Point; smaller communities include Pefferlaw, Port Bolster, Udora and Willow Beach. The town was formed by the merger of the Village of Sutton, the Township of Georgina and the Township of North Gwillimbury in 1971, and was incorporated in 1986. North Gwillimbury had previously been part of Georgina, but became its own township in 1826. It took its name from the family of Elizabeth Simcoe, née Gwillim.
The Town of Georgina operates under a ward system, and its Municipal Council consists of the Mayor, Regional Councillor (known procedurally as Deputy Mayor) and a Councillor for each of the five wards. The current council consists of:
The Mayor and Deputy Mayor represent Georgina at meetings of York Regional Council.
Provincially, it was part of the riding of York North until 2007 and is now part of the provincial riding of York-Simcoe, represented by Julia Munro of the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario, who was first elected in 1995.

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
