Ilderton, May, 30, 2022 – Middlesex Centre got a little greener this past weekend thanks to the hard work of local Scouts and a grant from Enbridge Gas.
Twenty-five Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and their parents from the 68th Scouting Group planted 20 large-caliper trees at Deerhaven Park in Ilderton.
The trees, mulch and other planting supplies were purchased with a $5,000 Fueling Futures grant from Enbridge Gas.
“We are so fortunate to have local partners in the 68th Scouting Group and Enbridge Gas that are stepping up to help us enhance our greenspaces,” said Mayor Aina DeViet, who attended the event. “Middlesex Centre is committed to making our programs and facilities more sustainable and carbon-neutral, and we grateful to be able to extend that effort into our parks.”
Enbridge Gas staff were on hand to help with the planting and celebrate the hard work of the Scouts with an afternoon barbeque.
“Enbridge is proud to support local priorities that make positive and lasting impacts in our communities,” said Steven Jelich, Director of Southwest Region Operations at Enbridge Gas in announcing the grant. “Together we're energizing communities through initiatives that strengthen community safety, vibrancy and sustainability.”
