“Last year, community contributions to the Sackville Rivers Association’s (SRA) Annual Dinner and Auction helped us raise over $8,000 for the improvement and conservation of the Sackville River and surrounding watershed.
“The SRA continues our mandate of conservation, including in-stream habitat improvements at various locations throughout the watershed, fish stocking, and river clean-ups by volunteers of all ages. We have continued improvements to our Bedford-Sackville Connector Greenway trail that now stretches from Bedford Basin to Lower Sackville and is used by thousands of walkers, cyclists and runners and are currently constructing phases 2 and 3 of Section B of the Sackville Greenway from Glendale Drive to Sackville Drive along the Little Sackville River.
“Our Fish Friends and River Rangers youth education programs have also been very successful. This year, 21 classes from 11 local schools were involved in the program, grades 2 to 4. The students had the exciting opportunity to study the newly hatched fry until they were returned to the river in the spring.
“On Friday September 14th, 2018, the SRA will be holding its 15th Annual Dinner and Auction at the Sackville Legion.
“We are celebrating our 30th anniversary this year so we hope to make the 15th annual Dinner Auction one of our best yet!
“Your donation of any item or service would be greatly appreciated. Please call our office at 865-9238 if you are able to help.
“If you would like to attend the dinner, tickets ($30.ea) are also available at the same number.
“Thank you for your time.
