Happy Holidays & some FOUP News

From the Dec 16th, 2012 email sent out, by Margaret Lidkea, to Friends of Uplands Park members:

Welcome to our newest Steering Committee member, Ben Clinton-Baker. Ben is a member of the Municipal Heritage Committee and offers great expertise to our committee.

Ben will also be on the panel of our upcoming event:

Heritage of Uplands Park
7 pm April 16, 2013
Windsor Park Pavilion

Thanks to Helen Johnson and Ralph Archibald, who have retired as members of the Steering Committee, for their greatly appreciated contributions. We wish them well as they continue to be involved in the community and as members of FOUP.

We welcome new members who may be interested in being on our Steering Committee.

Thanks to the financial donation of the Rotary Club of Oak Bay, two bicycle racks are now installed at two entrances to Uplands Park.

The Kiosk Project members are having a Visionary Session on Thursday December 27 at 12:30 pm to 2 pm. If you would like to participate please phone Margaret at 250-595-8084.

The federal Habitat Stewardship Fund has finally given money to Oak Bay Parks for Restoration projects in Uplands Park. This Fund is only available because we have so many volunteers working in Uplands Park removing invasive plants. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HAVE PARTICIPATED!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!
SEE YOU IN 2013

Margaret Lidkea and Kathleen Matthews
Co-Chairs of the Friends of Uplands Park
