Submissions still accepted for sustainability funding
The Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue Boardwalk will be hopping tonight when the band Under our Groove plays a free concert beginning at 7:30 p.m. The June 19 show will go on in the event of rain, but will be moved to the Harpell Centre, located at 60 rue Saint-Pierre. Visitors are reminded to bring their own lawn chairs.
Animated Fridays on the Boardwalk
And the town’s summer-long series of events, designed to help showcase the waterfront and downtown core’s recent multimillion dollar makeover, will also include something special each Friday night. Animated Fridays on the Boardwalk will run from June 21 – Aug. 16. Kicking the initiative off this week will be Miss Bonbon the Clown and Venyse, a children’s makeup artist. Both will be on hand Friday from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. at the Ste.-Anne-de-Bellevue boardwalk.
Call for proposals
Meanwhile, Ste.-Anne-de-Bellevue’s city council is launching a second call for proposals in order to give $5,360 to local projects highlighting sustainability. The town created a $10,000 total fund for its Moving Towards Sustainability initiative. To date $4,640 of the fund has been awarded to the following three initiatives: John Abbott College’s Nourishing our students – Engaging our community was awarded $1,140 to plant a campus vegetable garden that will also serve as an outdoor laboratory. And the Ste. Anne’s CEGEP will also receive $1,500 in order to equip 53-campus apartments with three-way recycling bins. Training for users will be provided, while collections will be done by a local disabled person’s program. JAC will also contribute $1,800 toward the program.
Finally, École secondaire Saint-Georges will receive $ 2,000 to promote active transportation. The school will contribute $300 toward a safe cycling effort.
All sustainability project proposals must be submitted by August 14, at noon.
