As promised the Mill Bay Community League is relaunching our monthly community meetings! Every third Tuesday of the month we will host a different speaker on an issue that is of importance to our community. All meetings will be held at the Mill Bay Community Hall and will be attended by our Area A director Blaise Salmon.
October brings fire prevention week as well as the annual backyard burning season, so our first meeting will be presented by the Mill Bay Fire Department. On October 15th at 7pm we will be learning about fire prevention, safe backyard open burning management, and a fire extinguisher demonstration.
Backyard burning is allowed from October 15 – November 15 only. Do you know the rules and regulations for open burning? It only takes 30 seconds for a small flame to grow into a dangerous fire. Attend our meeting to make sure you know how to handle a fire situation, and get your hands on a fire extinguisher for practice!
Fire prevention week is from October 6-12. The local fire department is teaming up with Moo’s Pizza as their pizza delivery team! Order a pizza, have a fire truck visit your home and enter to win amazing prizes (especially for kids!). Follow the event on Facebook for more details.
Looking ahead: November 19th at 7pm is Mill Bay Community League’s Annual General Meeting and will host a presentation on the status of water in the South Cowichan.
