Winter Bottle Drive on Saturday!

Our second bottle drive of the training year is on Saturday at VanNoort Greenhouses (at the corner of Hunter and Four Mile Creek Roads) in Niagara-on-the-Lake. We will start promptly at 0900h (9:00am) and we need all cadets, and as many parent volunteers as possible, on board. Please remember that this is a mandatory fundraising activity and that attendance cheques will be cashed for those cadets not present.

Before the bottle drive itself begins, we need some volunteers to meet Mr. Zalepa at 0730h (7:30am) to help load the bottles that have been collected from our drop-off program. If you’re available, please let Mr. Zalepa know as soon as you can.

DRIVERS: We need drivers! Please bring in your valid driver’s license and proof of automobile insurance, pick up your driving route, and cadets. If you have a truck, so much the better;
SORTERS: We need sorters for the entire day. It’s a dirty job, but worth every penny. We have people who know how it works, so find someone who looks like they know what they’re doing and they’ll show you the ropes;
CADETS: It’s a cold day, so WEAR YOUR WINTER COAT, GLOVES, and cadet toque. We’re expecting to go down to -4°C and will potentially have a cold weather warning to deal with, so wear layers and don’t under-dress. You’ll be outside for the majority of the day.

We will be providing lunch for everyone helping out, and there will be coffee/tea on-site as well for our adult volunteers.

Bring your excitement and enthusiasm! We are looking forward to a fantastic fundraising event.
