Winter Bottle Drive Tomorrow!

Our second bottle drive of the training year is tomorrow at Van Noort Greenhouses (2069 Four Mile Creek Road at the corner of Hunter Road) in Niagara-on-the-Lake. We will start promptly at 0900 (9:00am) and we need all cadets and as many parent volunteers as possible. 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. Abt at 0730 (7:30am) to help load the bottles that have been collected from our drop-off program.

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 going to be a wet day, so DRESS TO STAY DRY. Bring GLOVES, good boots, and wear your cadet toque. We’re expecting to up to 60mm of rain so don’t under-dress. Bringing a change of clothes for halfway through the day isn’t a bad idea either. 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.

See you tomorrow morning. We hope the weather forecaster is wrong! Don’t forget all your empties from home.
