Neighbourwoods Deadline Extended to April 30!

neighbourwoods-graphic-305What’s the tree situation at your place?  NeighbourWoods might be just the thing for you. It’s a residential tree planting program – the City provides a tree (or several) to be planted on City-owned land adjoining your lot, and you agree to monitor and water the tree for 5 years.  Participation fee is $30 for each tree, only payable after a City gardener does a site visit with you to confirm location and species.  With all the snow we’ve been having, the City decided to extend the Neighbourwoods deadline to April 30, so that we have a chance to get in the “spring spirit” and start thinking about tree planting.  For more information on the program click here.

April 13 and 14: Build-A-Legacy Project Launches

The Montgomery Heritage Committee is seeking to capture our colourful history through photographs this year.   Current and former community members are invited to share some of their collections of Montgomery photos from the 1960s and earlier at one of our Build-a-Legacy “scan-a-thon” events.  We’ll scan photos (albums okay too) and return them on the spot so they won’t be lost or damaged, and get some info. from you about them.  The scans will be preserved in the community centre archives for the use of future generations.

The first two scan-a-thons are scheduled at the community centre main hall for Sunday, April 13, anytime between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.  and  Monday, April 14, between 6 and 9 p.m.   Continue reading
