Windsor members help beautify Safety Village

Windsor Chapter has once again been busy this summer with the completion of stage one of site development and maintenance at the Windsor Safety Village.

The Safety Village is a non-profit community organization providing safety and injury prevention education programs to residents in Windsor-Essex. The facility provides onsite safety education programs to as many as 10,000 elementary school children.

Windsor Chapter members volunteer to carry out most maintenance practices on the extensive grounds. After meetings with the manager, it was determined that a multi-stage approach to the maintenance and further development of the site was required.

This year a team from Topgrade Landscape, Bellaire Landscape, Gary Moore of the University of Windsor, Garlatti Landscaping, Williams Nursery, Orchard Farm Nursery, Sal Costante and Chapter president Don Tellier supplied materials and labour to freshen up the front view of the site. More maintenance work is being planned for fall with the assistance of students from St. Clair College’s horticulture program.

The staff members at Windsor Safety Village have told members how pleased they are with the finished product, and offer kudos to all the volunteers.
