This month we will be celebrating Earth Day on April 30th. Activities get underway at the Port Union Recreation Centre at 10 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.  We are also planning a display and information session in the gym sponsored by Live Green Toronto.  Staff will be available, following the outdoor cleanup, for discussion about how to make our city greener.  There will be a barbeque, come and have your lunch in the gym and find out what you can do to help the environment.  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.  Further Earth Day details are contained elsewhere in this newsletter.

Donít forget, high school students have until April 26 at 9:30 p.m. to submit their applications for our $ 1000 William A. Dempsey scholarship.  Details and the application for the scholarship are contained on our web site.

In early March I attended the quarterly meeting of the Port Union Waterfront Trail Committee.  All fill, rubble and shoreline material i.e armour stone, rip rap and cobbles have been delivered to site.  A section of the trail heading west from Rouge Beach will be open for limited use this summer.  The official opening for the complete section of Phase 2 is scheduled for the summer of 2012.

Next month we will be launching our annual membership campaign.  Membership Chair Betty Karsh is busy organizing this yearís campaign.  There is a list in this newsletter of streets requiring canvassers.  Please consider volunteering to be a canvasser, this is our only fund raising event for the year.
