Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - "The Athletic Version"
Most of us have it… the garage, closet, shed, or basement full of “gently used” sports equipment. In many cases we find ourselves canvassing our neighborhood asking if they need a pair of size 6 cleats, skates, basketball shoes, etc. We also find ourselves frustrated having to replace perfectly good equipment that our children have grown out of year after year, especially after paying registration fees. Would you like to do something to decrease this frustration, get rid of the clutter and “recycle”?
If you answered ”yes” to this question you will want to participate in the first Prospect Road athletic recycling program. How does it work?
1- Check your house for clean, good quality, gently worn equipment that you no longer want. Items from the following categories are suggestions: FOOTWEAR: Running shoes, basketball, court shoes, cleats, indoor turf shoes, skates. PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT: Hockey, lacrosse, ringette, soccer shin pads, baseball gloves.
2- While your cleaning out, identify your child(ren)’s needs for similar items and mark your calendar to come and try to fulfill their athletic needs by picking up something that is “new to you.”
Drop off will be at Prospect Road Elementary School on the following dates:
- TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 29th – 6pm-8pm
- THURSDAY, OCTOBER 1st – 6pm-8pm
Pick up “new to you” items at Prospect Road Elementary School on:
- THURSDAY, OCTOBER 6th - 6pm-8pm
Remember: Your child(ren), whether a new athlete or an experienced one, is welcome!
On October 17th make sure to add Site #6 at 40 Fiddle Parkway to your list of must stops for an inviting fall experience. Come visit the AUTUMN ARTISANS to discover what great gifts they have to offer…
Beverly Blackburn, returning host, will be exhibiting her local photography in the form of scenery from popular tourist attractions like Peggy’s Cove and the Public Garden’s. Available as well will be photos recognizable to all of those who live near the shores in Prospect, Terence Bay and Lower Prospect to name a few.
Those of you interested in floral prints must come take a look as well! Orders can be taken and she can customize frames, matt colours and sizes to suit your requests.
Together with her daughter, Nicole (joining her at the site) they will offer homemade preserves, cookies and an assortment of loaves to help with your holiday entertaining.
Nicole joins her Mom for the 3rd year with her homemade natural and organic soap designed for fall and upcoming Halloween and Christmas occasions. These soaps only contain essential oils and natural colourings, which must be smelled to be appreciated. Massage oils, bath salts and sugar scrubs available either separately or in gift baskets. Organic doggie wash and repellent spray along with organic wheat free doggie treats to satisfy our fury guests too!
Bev and Nicole happily welcome back Donna Little to the site this year. Donna belonged to the craft crawl since it’s inception and after some time away returned last year with her second-to-none stitches all sewn up in the form of ladies scarves, children’s painting aprons, table runners, adult aprons, baby quilts and dog jackets and many more must see items for Christmas and everyday.
Her personality is also second-to-none and some of what we offer here is great conversation and community spirit! Stop by and sip some warm apple cider and enter your name for a chance to win our door prize… we would love to meet you!
