April 21/05 Earth Day Quiz

There is a lot going on around town for Earth Day. Friday is the 20 minute makeover. We have asked the newest landlords on the block to join us in Parkway Forest. "Prove to the community that you are here to stay and that you care," we said. Both said yes!

Verdiroc, who are building the new building at 121 Parkway Forest and El Ad, the new owners of the buildings managed by Met Cap will join my Ward 33 team and Staff Inspector White and her Officers from Division 33 to pick up in the Park. Marius will be donating water and refreshments from the Parkway forest IGA Supermarket.

Here is a little fun for you. All staff have been asked to answer an Earth Day quiz. Justin, Collette, Jenny and our summer students Jesse, Collette and Janey need help with the answers. They have to turn in their answers by April 29th so take a look below and see if you can give them a hand....
