HELLO APRIL!
HAPPY SPRING!
IMPORTANT DATES!
If you’d like to tend to the inground garden outside your business, please contact April at the DBA to be added to the volunteer list so we can ensure all the gardens are cared for.
Although we cannot gather together this year for Earth Day April 22nd, please find time to sweep around your business and wash the dust off the windows from the long dirty winter and the street sweeper. Please reach out for recommendations if you’d rather hire someone to do this for you.
The Beautification committee would like all planters out by May 15th. We will come around and add fresh soil and fertilizer so you’re ready to plant. If you received a tin of cleaning conditioner, please use it at that time – we’d like to only purchase more for those who did not receive one.
The committee has plans to be in the Downtown gardens every weekend in May, provided restrictions allow. Hope to see you too!

HELP KEEP OUR COMMUNITY SAFE:
After a recent phone call with Jeremy McDonald, Staff Sergeant with the Parry Sound OPP Detachment about safety in our Downtown, he is asking all DBA members with security cameras to kindly share the location and how long the recordings are held ASAP.
If he has this information in advance, it saves time going door to door to find this out in the event of a crime.
