The green team in jeans extends an invitation

Tuesday, June 10, 2014   by: Staff



The 7th Annual Civic Centre Greens Days event is taking place Thursday, June 12, 2014.

The Green Team is comprised of 12 City of Sault Ste. Marie summer students, assisted by Ward 1 Councillor Steve Butland and Environmental Initiatives Coordinator Madison Zuppa.

This year’s projects include a special garden planted on the Civic Centre grounds and a new water fountain that works to reduce the number of plastic water bottles.

The garden dedication ceremony will take place Thursday, June 12 at 10 a.m. in the north east corner of the Civic Centre, followed by the unveiling of the new water fountain in the Civic Centre lobby.

The Green Days initiative coincides with a City Jean Day event.

For a $5 donation, participants can enjoy a coffee break with proceeds going to the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign.

Employees participating in Green Days have the opportunity to take part in different activities for “green” prizes.

Special thanks to Walmart and St. Joseph Coffee Roasters for their generous donations.

2014 Green Team members include: Laura Schug, Lucas Turpin, Wil Bell, Toni Marie Fera,Adam Devon, Maggie Kirkwood, Lucas Buffone, Nadia Peres, Jenna Christian, Andrew Chorney, Kristy Scarfone and Christine Caron.

Sounds interesting but it have been nice to detail what exactly this water fountain is a bit more.

Sports fan... really? It sounds like a drinking fountain that has a tap for filling water bottles

I find this "green" and "environmental" day a great thing for our community.

I do wonder how it is that the Greenest City in North America has so many trees in decline in the down town core?

I'm no expert, but these trees look like they have not been looked after very well. Bark is peeling and the Leaves are not full or lush. I've seen other towns with a vibrant downtown green space and here it looks bad.

Maybe they could take the kids for a walk downtown in their green jeans and water those trees.
