Strathcona Community Centre "Makeover"

Volunteers wanted for community centre and school grounds work party
Saturday, April 30, 2011

On April 30th, Volunteer Canada is bringing in 350-500 volunteers to give the Community Centre area and school grounds a “face-lift.” There are two main activities planned--renovating and expanding the garden areas outside of the centre and school, and renovating the two inside community centre rooms upstairs.

Now is the chance to get involved and help out in making the rooms and outside areas a safer, more beautiful and imaginative place for our kids. We have many garden-related projects including creating creative playscapes with rocks, tree stumps and logs, building garden boxes, planting herb gardens, building stone river beds, and planting fruit trees.

We are currently seeking volunteers to help with leading each of the projects and as oversight leads on the day of the event so that everything is in place for the volunteers to do the work with oversight from us. You don’t have to be experienced in anything, just willing to lend a few hours to help!

Please let me know if you are interested and I can give you more info. Also, please pass this email on to anyone who you think might be enticed.

Thank you!
