YARD MAINTENANCE AT COMMUNITY CENTRE UNDERWAY

A survey of the community centre grounds was completed on November 18 to determine care and maintenance that should be done with plant material at the centre. Melody vanOmme, Lucille Carter, and Dave MacNeil conducted the survey and created a list of actions that can be taken to improve the grounds and care for the many trees and shrubs at the centre. It was noted that great work has been done over the years with individuals and the Women’s Institute in planting trees, especially, which have made the property one to be proud of.  It is hoped that in early 2022, further work can be done in planting low maintenance perennials and flower bulbs to further enhance the property. Please see the list of items to be worked on below and watch for further posts of days when this list will be worked on. All citizens are encouraged to participate, and if anyone wishes to join a landscaping committee to further this work, please contact Dave MacNeil at 902-569-4242.
