Thank you to everybody who came out to Fort Langley on Sunday August 5 and helped collect signatures for the petition and to everyone who showed their support by signing the petition. By the end of the day we had collected about three hundred signatures. Way to Go!!
The next thing on our agenda is the free guided tours next Sunday August 12 of the Mclellan Park East site just behind Gray Pit.Over the next few days we will be making a big push to get the word out that this is happening. So please tell your family,friends,neighbours,and co-workers.We will be putting up posters and trying to get the word out on the Internet.
We are going to need help the rest of this summer and into the fall.. So if you would like to help put up posters this week,help with the guided tours on Sunday, or gather signatures for the petition this week and beyond send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include the word volunteer in the subject line. Don't assume that because the things I mentioned are not in your comfort zone or that they are beyond the amount of time and energy that you can commit that you can't help.Perhaps you're a computer whiz.or maybe you are really good a putting together videos for youtube, or you can devote a few hours to taking photographs on Sunday or some other day. Tell us what your skill set is and will tell you if you can help. You may surprise yourself or even us.
The free guided tours will begin at noon Sunday and contiue until five. We won't turn anybody away if you show up late and we're still there. To get to there take 264the street from Aldergrove or the freeway until you get to 84th Avenue then turn left onto 84th. Follow 84th until you get to 257A street. Access to the trailhead is on 257A. An info table will at the trailhead.
To get there from Fort Langley leave Fort Langley by way of River Road.Follow River Road until you cross the West Creek Bridge. River Road then becomes 88th Avenue. Turn at 252nd or at 256th. Take 84th until you get to 257A. The rest should be obvious.
I hope to see you there. Until then check out these pictures.
