This afternoon, in heat that felt like 40 degrees, a few brave souls laid hundreds of rolls of sod at Lockwood Park. The goal was to finish off the landscaping around the natural playground, cenotaph, basketball court and stage before Canada Day. And the goal was reached. Thanks to Green Street Challenge and Elizabeth Hess for the sod.
And who were the brave souls who defied the heat to get the job done? I want to thank, Paul and Heather Snider, Mark and Miriam Snider, Phil and Maureen and Matthew Young, Peter Evans, Derek Palmer and Elizabeth Hess.
Come see for yourself! July 1st @ 1:30. Official Opening of the stage by The Honourable Steve Clark, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing and the announcement of the 2018 Senior of the Year take place before we kick off the Canada Day parade.
HAPPY CANADA DAY!!!
The Green Street Challenge is occurring on Saturday, June 30 at Fetch Murphy Way. The sod will be laid on the road in the morning and children of all ages are invited to come and play throughout the day. The Fire Fighters will be hosting a BBQ at the spring as well.
At the end of the event, Green Street Challenge donates the sod to the host. This means we can finish some of the projects at Lockwood park and lay sod around the stage and basketball court, including the berm beside the natural playground.
It is going to be a hot day and we are asking for volunteers to make the work go quicker. There will be some fire fighters rolling up the sod beginning at 4:00 p.m. If you can spare a couple of hours to help, all of the sod can be rolled up and then laid at the park.
Paul Snider, CAO/Clerk will be on site at Fetch Murphy Way at 4:00. Please sign in with him if you can help us out.
