Canada Day Garden Party Recap

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!

Update to the Roadside Clean-Up

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
  • Modems
  • Printers and Fax machines
  • TVs
  • Scanners
  • Phones, Cell phones, Pagers and Answering Machines
  • AV Players and Recorders
  • Cameras

Roadside Clean-up

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!
