Community clean-up and Earth Day celebration

“Many hands make light work” ~ John Haywood, 1546

The Black Creek Community Association (BCCA) is celebrating its 55th year as being the hub of Black Creek for recreational programs and special events.

As the Centre is owned by members of the BCCA, and the BCCA is a not-for-profit organization, the facility can always use lots of hands to tackle maintenance duties.  Join members and staff Saturday, April 20th, from 9:00am – noon, to help tidy up and celebrate Earth Day.  Maintenance tasks include gardening, power washing (thanks to Pilon Tool Rentals), wallpaper removal, staining and painting, organizing storage, cleaning windows, repairing fences and the playground, and more – there is a task for everyone of every age.

The beautiful Centre is located at 2001 Black Creek Road in Black Creek. Look for the new highway sign across from Endall Road.  Please bring gloves, pruning shears, muscles, energy and any other helpful gear.  The coffee will be on and lunch and refreshments will be provided, followed by an Earth Day Cake.  Pitch in to clean up our community.
