The annual Côte Saint-Luc Public Works Week Carnival took place on May 22 and hundreds turned out to this event which combines education and a whole lot of fun. Congratulations to Beatrice Newman, Oriana Familiar, Councillor Steven Erdelyi and the rest of their team for a job well done, Councillor Glenn J. Nashen and I even pitched in by shovelling some composting material into one of the many yellow bags being given out to the public. See the picture below.
This event was originally scheduled to occur a week earlier, but Mother Nature rained on that parade and we had to postpone. Weather conditions were perfect o n this day. A donation to the Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation gave kids access to real vehicles, inflatable games, face painting/tattoos, flower planting, arts and crafts, fun and games and more.
There were tours of the Public Works Yard on a buggy, a barbecue, balloons TCBY, cotton candy and snow-cones, face painting and tattoos, fllower planting, arts and crafts, demonstrations and Eco-Action Day. Everyone on hand got to learn more about recycling and organic waste collection and received free garden compost. For the kids there was a zero-waste lunch , an environmental trivia games and an inflatable enchanted forest . Used bikes were baccepted on behalf of SOS Vélo.
