National Public Works Week Open House - May 14, 2016

National Public Works Week Home

Come out to learn about the services Public Works staff provide and how we're improving connections in our environment. Your whole family will also enjoy activities, including:
Equipment and Trucks:  Climb up and feel what it’s like to sit in the driver’s seat of a snow plow, front end loader, flusher truck, fire truck and more! Staff will be on hand to answer questions about the equipment.
Charity Barbecue (11 a.m. - 1 p.m.): Hamburgers, hot dogs and drinks will be sold and all proceeds support Hill House Hospice and Fort McMurray Fire Relief efforts. Vegetarian options will be available. 
Displays and demonstrations: Learn first-hand how Richmond Hill and its local service providers take care of our roads, water, parks, trees and public buildings through educational displays and information booths. Take home energy conservation and clean air tips, useful giveaways and samples, and balloons and prizes for kids. 
Tours - Take a short van tour of the Operations Centre site, which includes Richmond Hill's Fire Training Tower and its award-winning Snow Storage Facility. You'll also visit the Region's new Community Environmental Centre.
Healthy Yards Event - Pick up your pre-ordered plants, rain barrels and composters, talk to gardening experts, and bring home some free wood chips (while quantities last).
Prizes - Fill out a ballot and win some great prizes, including rain barrels, swim passes and tickets to the Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts.
