Stark and Marsh will be hosting their fifth annual Go Green Friday on Sept. 27.
The fifth annual Go Green Friday environmental initiative has been planned for Sept. 27 in Swift Current. Stark & Marsh Chartered Accountants LLP is leading the organization of the event and is working with the City of Swift Current on a list of activities for participants.
"We are very excited to once again partner with the City of Swift Current to help with the beautification of our community," commented Stark & Marsh Administration Manager Darcy Congdon. "As a firm, we feel it's important to give back to the community in which we live, and I think many others are looking for avenues to contributed environmentally as well."
Members of the Stark & Marsh staff will be providing labour for the event for either a morning or afternoon shift. Planned activities include tree planting, laying mulch, and assisting the Watershed Authority with the Riparian Restoration project and a barbecue to be held at Market Square. All other businesses wishing to have their staff participate, or other members of the community interested in helping out are encouraged to contact Stark & Marsh to sign up.
For those that can't participate actively in the event, there is still a way to show support for the initiative.
"We are asking those that can't directly get involved in the day's activities because of their work schedule to take a little extra time that day to either walk to their place of work or car pool if possible. It's an added way to support the environment for this specific day, but it may also be something that works into your schedule long term. We are also asking people to bring fall/winter coasts, snow suits, sweaters and other items to the BBQ or Bronco game for the Share the Warmth campaign."
All funds raised during the BBQ will go to the Swift Current United Way, and a $3 donation will get you a burger, chips and a drink.
