Sapperton Day 2011

Sapperton Day 2011 will be held on Sunday June 12th.
The 400 block of Columbia street will be closed to traffic to host this annual festival. There will be a pancake breakfast, street performers, merchants and community groups.

I look forward to seeing New Westminster 30 minute hit, as I just joined this gym and I am really loving it. The New Westminster Environmental Partners will be there with The Royal City Farmers Market, Explore a Green World will have a table with some eco-crafts for the kids, there will be face painting and no doubt a bouncy castle for the little ones. St. Mary's Anglican Church will also be there and will have some information about their community garden, and The New Westminster Community Gardening Society.

Cap's Bicycle Shop will have the penny farthing bikes, and other mainstays of the day will be back to celebrate life in Sapperton. Last year Graze Market even supplied the grass fed sausages for the breakfast, and Starbucks provided the coffee.

I hope the sustainability issues have been taken into consideration, as we now have food waste composting available in New Westminster we can be composting and reducing our impact during this community event.
