Green Legacy entering a dormant phase

Martin asks for new members to keep group running

Dear Editor,

It is my task to inform you that the Kent-Harrison Green Legacy Society has decided to enter a dormant phase until new members step forward.  Our current membership has fallen below a critical mass and we are no longer able to work effectively to carry out our goals. We are calling for new members to come forward and carry the torch to protect the environment. Do you have the time and energy for this task? Please contact us if you do. We are keeping our bank account and our registered society status open in the hope that a new group of like-minded individuals will step up and carry this torch.

In the meantime we will continue to facilitate the sale of subsidized composters for the District of Kent (for the next six months) and to take the used batteries collected at the Agassiz Shoppers Drug Mart to the Bailey landfill for transfer to a recycling facility.

Some of our members will be active in other local organizations such as Stream Keepers and Friends of the East Sector.  We all remain committed to protecting the environment.

Thank you for your support over the years.

Please phone me, Lillian Martin for further information.   604-796-2443.
