Styrofoam Cleanup

Dear PICA members, 

A big thank you to everyone who helped with the recent styrofoam clean-up.  It is wonderful to know that there are so many people who want to make a difference and help preserve our marine environment.  Thank you also to all the people who regularly walk the beaches and roadways of the Penders and pick up other people's garbage. 

We have had a couple of inquiries about our charitable tax number.  Island Savings has made a very generous offer to donate $50 to a local charity when an account in the amount of $500 is opened at the new branch in the Driftwood Centre.  They need the tax number for whatever local charity is chosen.  If you wish to donate to PICA our Tax Registration number is 88739 1068 RR0001.  Island Savings' offer is a wonderful Christmas present for all the local groups which do so much for our islands. 

Don't forget to put Friday, February 8th on your 2013 calendar.  We will be holding our annual membership potluck.  Further details will follow and as usual we will be looking for volunteers to help with set-up and take-down. 

A very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone!
