And just like that, everything is green again as we await some leaves to sprout to give us some shade for all these beautiful days we're having! In this newsletter, we look back on the Spring Clean Up Event and forward to the Findlay Creek Garage Sale!

Dear Findlay Creek Community Association Members, 

What a beautiful few days it has been. Here is to the beginning of warmer days to come. A big shoutout and thank you to all of you who came out for the community cleanup. Every little bit makes a huge impact and difference. We hope you had the opportunity to hang out with our T-rex friends and we look forward to seeing you all more this summer at upcoming FCCA run events and activities.

Annual Community Clean-up

We had an excellent turn out of volunteers and residents on April 23rd for the Annual Spring Clean Up! We can't thank everyone enough for their contributions to the day. The South Nation Conservation folks gave away shrubs, and Freshco and Carol Anne Meehan's office provided some light refreshments for all our hard workers. Most importantly, the amount of trash that was cleared from our neighbourhood was fantastic. We can't wait to get out there again in the fall.
