You’d never guess it by the chilly weather, but spring is here (almost)! With that we thought we’d hit you with some updates:
1.) Modified Earth Centre Hours
We’re absolutely 100% open this week during our usual hours from 10-5 M-F and hope to see all your lovely faces to stock up for the coming month. To keep our library and products accessible, we’re going to be open from 10-5 until Friday April 15th. After that, the Earth Centre will be closing its doors for the 2010-2011 year. Sad. So be sure to come by and say hello/goodbye before the penthouse of the ARC quiets down!
2.) Book Exchange–Success!
Big thank you to all who participated in our first Book Exchange. It was an awesome event and we’re already getting stoked about possibilities for next year. Also, thanks/high fives to Alaya (Education Exec now, incoming External Co-Chair) for suggesting the idea and putting it together. Way to go!
3.) Kingston Sustainability Partnership!
We’re now an official community partner with the city of Kingston’s Sustainability Plan! Alright! Basically, what that means is we’re into what they’re doing and they’re digging what we’re up to. For more info on that process and the exact steps we outlined for the folks over at the city feel free to shoot an email or come by the Earth Centre. We’re pretty excited about this.
4.) Volunteers 2010-2011
Thank you thank you thank you! The Earth Centre couldn’t run without you all! I think I speak for all the Exec when I say that we really enjoyed getting to know all of you and loved the input/energy and commitment you all had this year. That being said, I’d love to see you this Friday at the social/volunteer appreciation. You all rock.
5.) Comment Box
There’s a newly added comment box in the Earth Centre for anyone to slip in a concern/suggestion/question. Totally anonymous and homemade. Alright!
6.) Library Updates
For all the library members out there with book still; please get them back to us by the 15th! We’ll start to hunt you down next week! On another note, if you’re finding that you have a lot of extra time on your hands, be sure to come by and check out the library. We got a pile of new books in earlier this week from the fabulous Alan from Transition Kingston.
Thanks again for a great year. Looking forward to seeing the Earth Centre take off in 2011-2012 to new, soaring and green heights.
