Over the last two months, more than 1500 spruce trees have found a new home in the Carleton electoral district. The Carleton Conservative Association joined forces with the Member of Parliament for Carleton, the Hon. Pierre Poilievre, to hand out the trees at local community events including Dickinson Days in Manotick and Canada Day celebrations in Stittsville and Riverside South. The rain that came down on Canada Day was welcomed after such a dry spring and did little to dampen the spirits of the volunteers that came out to give away the trees.
The Carleton Conservative Association wanted to show that we are committed to working with others to build strong and healthy communities across the electoral district. “Planting a tree is a good reminder that looking after tomorrow requires action today” observed a Board Member of the Carleton Conservative Association.
Thanks to the vision of many generations of community leaders, the dedication of volunteers who work together and individuals who take pride in their homes, the people of Carleton enjoy neighbourhoods that are rich with natural beauty. It is one of things that continues to attract people to become part of our community.
