month we will be celebrating Earth Day on April 26th. Activities
get underway at the Port Union Recreation Centre at 9:30 a.m. This is the
one day of the year set aside to do something in our community for the
environment. The main outdoor activities will be cleaning up the areas
where debris and garbage have collected over the winter. This year we are
combining the Birdhouse Building Workshop for children on the same day.
Birdhouse building sessions will be held at 9:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m. and
11:30 a.m. at the Port Union Rec. Centre. Advance registration is
required. Details about the workshop are contained elsewhere in this

participate. This is an event for all members of your family so plan to
attend and pitch in to make our community clean and environmentally
friendly. Please note that rakes are in limited supply so you are
encouraged to bring your own. Further Earth Day details are contained
elsewhere in this newsletter.
