Natural Playground

Community Meeting – Sept. 30

A community meeting will take place on Saturday, Sept. 30 from 10 – 11 a.m. at Pinemeadow Park. Come out to show your support for this project. City staff will be running a pop-up n’ play program for children for parents who wish to take part in the meeting.

In the event of rain, the meeting will be held at Angela Coughlan Pool.

For more information, contact Denise Beard, Manager of Community Development, at denise.beard@burlington.ca and follow the existing community facebook group at www.facebook.com/BurlingtonNaturalPlaygrounds.

A group of residents looking to construct a natural playground at Pinemeadow Park was successful at securing $5000 from the city to assist them in developing a natural playground.

There is an opportunity to expand the natural playground and add a water element into the project, thanks to a potential donation from a private foundation but a show of community support is needed. The funder needs to see community is willing to assist in the design and build of certain aspects of the playground.

Thank you

Thank you to all the residents in Ward Six who gave me their vote of confidence in this election.  It has been a very tough race, but I was encouraged all the way by your comments and best wishes.  I look forward to serving you another four years.  Blair

Last Few Days!

It has been a busy time  running this Election race!  I’ve made it to most doors and it has been an exceptional experience meeting all of you.   Some of you invited me into your homes, I got to celebrate a new holiday “Eid”, and I have made some wonderful new friends.  For those of you who volunteered to help I can’t thank you enough. Many of you have shared your vote for me via the internet and I truly need the rest of you to go to the polls on Monday.  If you are still undecided, I would be happy to speak with you or you can go to my website www.blairlancaster.ca.  Thanks for continuing to help.  Blair
