LAST POST

Literally!  As Scouting in Central Escarpment Council works to integrate and support the Areas, there is a NEW, IMPROVED, (ah heck, add some more adjectives) BLOG maintained at the Council level.  There are breakdowns by Area (and yes, Wellington is there as a category!), as well as by section and activity.  It’s also hosted with our own servers, and you’ll find speed is much improved as well.  I will be continuing to maintain the new blog, though others will be posting as well (the other 7 areas and the Council Commissioner come to mind 🙂 )!  So, please bookmark the NEW location, and if you’re using the RSS feeds, make sure you add yourself to the new blog at:

Happy Scouting in the new Scouting Year, and  I’m off to post the 30 or 40 blog entries that haven’t happened as we reinvented ourselves!

Speed River Cleanup – Sat Jun 13th

OPIRG’s 30th Annual Speed River Clean up is fast approaching! On Saturday June 13th, with sign in starting at 8:45am, we will be meeting at Royal City Park (on Gordon St across from the Boathouse) to clean up the Speed River.  We are still looking for a few volunteers to help run this fantastic event. If you’re interested in any of the following opportunities, please get in touch as soon as possible. Thanks!

1. Crew leaders – Crew leaders walk with crews (of 10-20 people) to a pre-arranged section of the river, and supervise and help with the pickup of garbage. You are responsible for writing down the names of people in your group, making sure everyone is safe and having fun, and making sure the waste is properly sorted and recorded. There will be a short crew leader meeting during the week before the Clean Up.

2. New this year: Children’s activities! – If you don’t want to get down and dirty with some spring cleaning of the Speed River there are still plenty of ways you can volunteer! We are looking for volunteers to coordinate interactive children’s water activities! The water activities are being provided by the Children’s Water Education Council and will explore amazing things like what it is like to be a water droplet or how much water we use on a daily basis. Activity Coordinators will be expected to review an activity leader training manual, provide two references relating to work with children and attend a pre-clean up orientation.

3. Registration volunteers – Registration volunteers welcome people, assign them to a crew, and help them find their crew leader. You are the folks with the answers to all the questions… don’t worry you’ll be well equipped with all the information you need!

4. Set-up and take-down volunteers (Friday evening and Saturday) – There is a lot that goes into this event! Setting it up and cleaning up afterwards is a huge job, and any help is always much appreciated. You can help us with set-up and take-down even if you’re already volunteering with the childrens’ activities, as a registration volunteeror crew leader, or with the general river cleanup. It’s not glamorous work, but we couldn’t do it without you!

Interested in this educational and fun experience? Please contact:

opirg@uoguelph.ca or call 519.824.2091, or visit 1 Trent Lane at the University of Guelph.
