This Wednesday’s Fish Fry Dinner was a smashing success! Numbers aren’t confirmed yet, but an estimated 420 people came out to enjoy an excellent meal, served up by the Board of Trade and the Village Caterer. The weather was great, and the picnic tables were as full as the dining room.
We had a lot of fun this Saturday at the Garden Party, despite the stormy weather; when the rain started we were all safely inside enjoying our cake and ice cream. At least the rain held off until after a rather energetic croquet tournament. The turn-out was good, and it was nice to see all the red and white hats, and snazzy Canada Day outfits. Thanks to the volunteers and especially the Women’s Institute for the fantastic cake!
Our Garden Party will be held rain or shine, so bring your bonnet and join us on July 1st for some cake and tea on the lawn to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday. If croquet isn’t your cup of tea, bring a ball or a bat and play your favorite game! See you at the park!
This spring, the roadside clean-up was held on Earth Day, a really nice coincidence! The turnout was great as as the weather.
Remember that there will be another Clean-up day in the fall, we will post the date later in the summer.
A reminder that the clean-up is this weekend, April 22, 2017. We are always looking for volunteers, it’s a fun way to get out in the sunshine and meet your neighbours. If you are in high school, this is an excellent opportunity to complete your volunteer hours. Please join us at the Board of Trade building on South St., right across from the Village Market, at 9:00 AM. Vests, route maps, and instructions will be distributed there.
This year we will be providing a bin for scrap metal and electronics, thanks to Dundee Recycling and Toman Services as well as the Board of Trade. The bin is located beside Toman Services, 1454 Bridge St., and you can drop off electronic waste and scrap metal from 9:00 AM until 2:00 PM. The bin will be there for about a week, if you can’t make it this Saturday.
The following is a list of the items that can be put in the bin:
- Ferrous and non-ferrous metal
- Computer monitors
- Computer circuit boards
- Printers and Fax machines
- Phones, Cell phones, Pagers and Answering Machines
- AV Players and Recorders
- Speakers and Turntables
- Video Game consoles
- CPUs and Towers, Laptops
Hi there, welcome back! We are very pleased to announce that our roadside clean-up will be on April 22, 2017 this spring, and that once again, we will be collecting scrap metal and electronics. If you would like to volunteer to help, we will convene at the Board of Trade office located on South Street at 9:00 am, and if you have any scrap metal or e-waste, it can be left in the bin beside Toman Plumbing, located on Bridge St.
If you have never participated in this event, please come on out and meet the neighbours! If you have participated before, you’ll know it’s good exercise, and a lot of fun.
We have a rain date as well, that would be the following Saturday, April 29, at the same time.
Hope to see you there!
