Dear PPRA Members

A research group at Saint Mary’s University is undertaking ecological research on the Nature Conservancy lands at Prospect. Attached a letter describing the project. The PPRA was asked to pass this information to our membership. The work is concerned with heathland plants that live along the coast and the Prospect site is one of three they are working on this season, with full permission and co-operation of the Nature Conservancy of Canada.

The link below is a letter describing the project in more detail.

A huge amount of garbage was cleaned up along the Prospect Peninsula over the weekend.
What an amazing community effort!


Department of Transportation hauled away two big loads from the top of Pinedale Drive on Monday morning. Volunteers gathered garbage from the ditches along Prospect Bay Road, up through Pinedale Park and in the areas behind the Legion, Mabel's and Andrew's truck.

Thank you again to everyone who helped in some way. We live in a beautiful community - that is now much closer to litter free!

Members of the Prospect Peninsula Residents’ Association, and a number of others in the community, including Darren Millet at New Life Community Church, have created the Route 333 Refugee Sponsorship Association, to sponsor a Syrian refugee family to come live in the Halifax area.
We need to raise a lot of money, but we’re well on our way. The PPRA has generously pledged $3,0000 and the Prospect Players has pledged $1,000.
At the Prospect Road Community Centre, we have created a “giving clothesline” to encourage everyone to give what they can. You can select the amount you wish to contribute by taking a donation card off the clothesline. (We’re hoping for an empty clothesline!)
Contributions to the sponsorship can be made online through our GoFundMe site (https://www.gofundme.com/Rt333RefugeeAssoc), or by cheque made out to the New Life Community Church in trust to the Route 333 Refugee Sponsorship Association, sent c/o Doug Pass, 1600 Prospect Bay Road, N.S., B3T 2B2. Tax receipts will be issued for individual donations over $25. Please include your name and address if you would like a receipt.
Thank you, from all of us at the Route 333 Refugee Sponsorship Association. Together we can make a world of difference for one family.
 
Allison Lawlor, chair of the Route 333 Refugee Sponsorship Association.
