Earth Week in Meaford 2015! – A Call for Volunteers

Good morning,
Once again the Municipality of Meaford, in conjunction with a group of volunteers will be hosting various events around the Municipality during Earth Week (April 18-24, 2015)!

This year the week kicks off with the RE-Use Fair on Saturday April 18th from 9am to 1pm. Also added this year to the RE-Use Fair is an ECO Fair where local non-profit groups with an interest in a healthy environment as well as Eco-friendly vendors can display and sell their goods!

If you know of anyone or any group that may be interested in either entering a Wishlist for the RE-Use Fair, or exhibiting as a vendor at the ECO-Fair, please forward them the brochure as well as my contact information! (The deadline for wishlists is March 20th, and for ECO-Fair vendors is April 4th) Applications for both the RE-Use and ECO Fairs can be found on the Municipal Website (www.meaford.ca) under Special Events, then scroll down to Earth Week!

I’ve attached a copy of the the brochure for you which outlines all of the events that are happening!

Volunteers are required for various tasks such as greeting people as they arrive, to helping to sell baked goods, to sorting and packaging items that arrive to be re-purposed!
