On behalf of the Town of The Blue Mountains I would like to extend an invitation to apply for the Town’s Environmental Sustainability Fund.

The fund is a $5000 allocation that will be split between successful applications that demonstrate a clear goal of advancing environmental sustainability within the Town.

Last year, the Thornbury Community Gardens project and the Beaver River Watershed Initiative project were the successful recipients. Both projects were great examples of how the Town and community organizations can work together to foster social vibrancy and environmental study.

The application deadline is December 13, 2019. To learn more and to download the application, please visit: www.thebluemountains.ca/our-sustainable-path.cfm

If you are a senior or caregiver in the area this is a great way to connect with many available resources including: caregiving; housing options and supports; safety; health and pharmaceutical information; meal-related options; and others. There will be more than 40 exhibitors, healthy snacks, door prizes, and an opportunity to 'Meet the 'Mayor'.
