Lee Everts would like to hear from anyone who is interested in a programme related to the 3 Rs - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Schools have been involved in recycling for years and making a difference and towns such as Pouch Cove and St. John's will be starting curbside recycling programme in the coming months. There's potential for communities in the Placentia area to do the same. If you're interested, please get in touch with her at 227-6004 or send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org.
