Thanks to everyone who came to our evening featuring “The Rattles” dinner and live concert featuring music of the Beatles on March 28th. The evening was a sellout. Thanks to Events Chair Heather Lemieux and the executive for all your work in organizing this evening. It was a huge success.
This month we will be celebrating Earth Day on April 18th. 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.
There will be a barbeque lunch available for all who 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. Earth Day details can be obtained by calling Port Union Community Centre at 416-396-4031.
Highland Creek Heritage Day will be held this year on Saturday June 13th. The format will return to the family-friendly one of previous years. Plans are to have a parade followed by activities centered around the village on Old Kingston Road. A dinner/dance will be held at the Legion Branch 258 located at 45 Lawson Road on Saturday June 6th. The Heritage Day committee is looking for volunteers to help make this event a success. If you are interested in helping, meetings are held the first Wednesday of each month in the Memorial Room at Legion Branch 258 on Lawson Road.
