The New Dundee Board of Trade is considering initiating a community garden for residents of New Dundee.
Before we turn sod, we’re looking to measure interest in the community.
If you’re interested in participating in a community garden either by renting a plot (at a nominal fee) or helping us set up/maintain this, we need to hear from you! Please reach out to Glenn Cooke, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at 519.696.2327.
The township has been reviewing potential changes to the kitchen in the community center. The township is seeking to standardize the various community centers across Wilmot. In addition some of the equipment (grill, dishwasher) are old enough that in addition to being prone to failure, they are becoming increasingly expensive to repair.
The New Dundee Board of Trade will be hosting it’s semi-annual roadside cleanup in a few weeks. Twice a year our members walk the roadsides and collect mountains of garbage.
Our spring cleanup will be Saturday April 27th, starting at 9am and meeting at the Board of Trade office on South Street.
Community members are welcome to attend and help out! Just meet us at the Board of Trade office at 9am.
Note: We will also be collecting metal and electronics for recycling. We will have a trailer located on South Street at the Board of Trade office. Feel welcome to drop off metal or e-waste at the trailer, on that day.
The Board of Trade’s pancake breakfast was once again a huge success. We had approx 300 people enjoy pancakes and good company. Attendance is up substantially over last year.
And in more good news, we are generating less trash than every before. The only garbage generated were about 6 plastic bags from the sausages, and about 6 plastic bags from the apple sauce cups – about a handful of garbage in total. That’s amazing for 300 people!
Bethel Church (1531 Bridge Street, New Dundee) is hosting a Family Game Night on Friday March 15th starting at 6:30PM. Loads of Fun with Group Games, Popcorn, Snacks, Drinks and a Candy Scramble. There is no admission fee but there will be a donation basket for those who would like to help with the evening’s expenses. Children must be accompanied by an adult. If you have questions, please contact the church office (519-696-2284).
Last night the 100 Men of Wilmot Who Give a Damn had their inaugural meeting at Puddicombe House in New Hamburg. As of the meeting, membership stood at 122 men.
