Naptime is Over for Our Bears

While most of us would like to stay curled up warm in cozy in our beds with the weather we’ve been having, a bear has been roaming our neighbourhood for the past week. There was a sighting on Greylynn Crescent on January 8, 2023. Residents say it’s a healthy young bear, about 1.5 yrs old.

A reminder to keep attractants that might get this young fellow into trouble, locked up and put away. ie: birdseed, bird feeders, garbage, etc.

You can report your sightings to the North Shore Black Bear Society through their website: www.northshorebears.com/report-bear-activity

And the Winner is …

With the last ornament packed away. lights wrapped, carpets rolled up and the stands and sand bags tucked away for another year, we finally get down to the challenging task of counting the ballots and announcing a winner for Best Overall Tree.

It took a bit of time to gather everything and tally up.

New Items Added to the Blue Bin!

Recycling is important. Did you know that by choosing to recycle and reducing your carbon footprint, you are playing a vital role in reducing the damaging effect to the environment.

The more people choose to recycle, the greater the impact recycling will have.

Recycling helps extend the life and usefulness of something that has already served its initial purpose by reducing it back to its raw materials and then repurposing those materials to produce something that is once again useable. It’s part of the three golden rules of sustainability (Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle)

Good News!

More items have been added to BC’s recycling system so that more items can be put into our Blue Bin or dropped off at a depot.

We can now put single-use cups, cutlery, bowls, plates, and aluminum foil into the Blue Bin.

We did it again!

It’s official – we’re a sell out!

We are so excited to tell you that we’ve done it again and SOLD OUT of our available trees for this year!

And we couldn’t have done it without your sponsorship. With everything still in a cautionary holding pattern right now including our Lighting Ceremony, (maybe next year!) we weren’t sure what to expect but all of you rose to the occasion and we will have an amazing display that’s going to spread some Christmas Magic and hopefully bring a smile in a otherwise challenging time.
