We need your ideas! REAL is turning 30 years old this fall, and we want to be sure we celebrate this achievement. Surviving three decades is quite the feat for a locally based environmental group.
We are having a get together Thursday January 10th at 7 p.m. to brainstorm possibilities. Anyone with a connection to REAL is most welcome.
Ideally we would mark the occasion with a few initiatives throughout the year. Have you heard or participated in any anniversary events for other organizations that would be appropriate for REAL? Do you have any ideas that would reflect who we are and what we do? No idea is too off the wall to consider!
To further entice you, we will be serving up some yummy desserts. We’ll be meeting at the Community Health Centre (the old high school) in the Kilmarnock Room (not the one with the kitchen!) Please go to the rear entrance! RSVPs appreciated but not absolutely necessary. If you have suggestions but are unable to attend, feel free to call Peter 283-8338 or Barb 283-9966 or pass them on to [email protected]
Below are some photos from our the early 90s: summer environmental day camp participants, and a fundraising art auction/wine and cheese at the Legion, and the Plant a Tree Create a Park plaque with Heritage House in the background.
