While there, kids also receive a FREE gift bag from Ontario Power Generation (OPG) and a special community partner, filled with activity items for the kids. “We have had 250 bags each Wednesday and they have all been handed out,” says OPG’s Lynda Cain. “Each week the bags have had different activities for the kids that they can enjoy doing at home.”

Yesterday, September 23rd, OPG’s community partner was Saugeen Valley Conservation Authority (SVCA).

All the packs contain: From Pumpkinfest, pumpkin themed activities with instructions on how to submit your carved pumpkin into the contest and from Ontario Power Generation, Flower seeds and information on how to attract Bees to your garden.

This week’s partner, SVCA, also included activities geared to the great outdoors! Packages  included Nature Bingo, a young spruce seedling to plant in your own yard and materials to make a bird feeder.

 

Petals and OPG will be at Hi-Berry Farm on Hwy. 21 next Wednesday from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. with partner Saugeen Historica Metis who will be providing material in the bags to build a craft canoe.
