News and Notes: 19 May 2022

The newly elected Board of Directors met for the first time on Wednesday 18 May 2022 at the Haw Creek Commons.

Since the April election, four committees have met to initiate a range of projects throughout the community. Work has begun on the Masters Park parking area; Clean and Green are hosting their first official litter pick-up on Sunday 5 June (details below); and the Community Outreach Committee is planning a community yard sale for Saturday 4 June (details also below).

At the meeting, a proposed single-use plastics ban was discussed. If you’re interested in learning more, check out the Letter to the Editor in from Anna Alsobrook in the Mountain Xpress, as well as this article about plastics in our local environment.
