Do you have some basic communication/social media/web skills? Do you have a few hours a month to help BPC?
If so, please reach out to us at (250) 766-3529.
We are searching for someone who can plan and implement our electronic communication strategy (web, facebook, twitter, and email).
The person would ideally be able to join us at monthly board meetings (normally first Monday of the month at 7:30), but most of the work can be done any time, so this is a great volunteer opportunity for people with busy schedules.
Come celebrate Earth Day with Buckingham Pond Conservancy as we host a formal ribbon cutting for the new playground followed by our annual spring pond cleanup.
Sunday April 22, 2018 1:00 - 3:00 PM
Children are encouraged to attend and to help hold the ribbon!
This is the culmination of two years of fundraising, planning, and finally building, so we look forward to seeing many friends at this celebration.
City of Albany - Mayor Kathy Sheehan will be there to celebrate with us and help us acknowledge the hard work of the City of Albany Department of Recreation and the City of Albany Department of General Services. We'll also be thanking our major donors: the Lobo Family in memory of Angelo & Victoria Lobo, Stonehenge Gardens, Dolores Hamilton, the Bender Family Foundation, and the Wildflower Fund, as well as the many individual donors who purchased commemorative bricks or made donations. This playground could not have happened without these private donations large and small.
You'll also have the opportunity to sing along with our neighbor Ruth Pelham to celebrate the spirit of welcome and inclusion that our new playground represents. Ruth is a performer, educator, community builder, and the founder of Music Mobile that for forty years has brought love and learning to people of all ages. She is currently working on The Music Mobile Legacy Project to highlight the story of the Music Mobile and the generations of people it has touched.
Please bring spoons or other simple homemade instruments to play along with as part of the "Buckingham Pond Community Band."
After the ribbon cutting we will work together to get the park ship shape for the season. Last week's unusually windy garbage day means there is plenty of garbage to pick up. More adventurous souls can also help with pulling winter's gifts of broken branches and other flotsam and jetsam out of the pond
Please join us at the next board meeting.
Board meetings are the best way to find out what we are doing and get more involved.
