Prizes are a pretty exciting thing. Even a small item or an ordinary one can be pretty darned exciting when it's a prize! And we have some prizes for the teams who'll be busy picking up trash in their neighbourhoods on April 14 at Sooke Region Wide Clean Up. Sign up your team now with Wendy O'Connor at firstname.lastname@example.org The prizes will be picked up on April 22 at Planet Earth Party.
Can't tell you what all the prizes are yet -- but there'll be gift certificates for local businesses, such as Well-Read Books and Sooke Mountain Cycle, among other things. We'll also have LED lightbulbs, thanks to our sponsor Sooke's Home Hardware letting us buy a bunch of them at cost! And there are reusable shopping bags donated by University of Victoria's Electronic Textual Cultures Lab (where students are researching with computers even if they're language scholars, not rocket scientists).
It's enough to get people volunteering, not only at the Clean Up but on April 22. Are you game for helping with the music, or the Paint-In, or directing traffic? Call our coordinator Marlene Barry at 250-884-9955 and tell her you're on the team.
