The CAER Organization in concert with the City of Sarnia will be holding its 15th annual EP DAY event at the Clearwater Arenas Complex Wellington Street on May 8th/2020. The show will run from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.

Lambton County schools have been attending this event for the past 14 years and it is hoped that they will continue to do so into the forseeable future. CAER has been paying for busing for all schools to attend this event since its inception back in 2006.

The show attracts around 100 displays each year from the municipal. industrial, military, government agencies and the private sector and has between 2500-3000 attendees each year. The Sarnia show is one of the largest emergency related events in the province of Ontario if not the entire country. It provides an opportunity for students to interface with emergency responders from across the county

It is hoped that LKDSB will continue to send its students to this educational event as it has in the past.

If you require further information regarding this worthwhile activity, Please contect me at patntomcooper@cogeco.ca, or 519-344-8175, or 519-312-4038 ( cell ). I am overall coordinator for EP DAY and have served in this capacity since our first show in 2006.

Hello,

I am the emergency management coordinator for Point Edward and working with Lambton Public Health on the fixed site vaccination clinic taking place at the Point Edward arena.

I am reaching out to see if we can engage the students in Lambton County in providing artwork to line the walls of our vaccine clinics.  Their art would line the walkways and hallways into the clinic so possibly large 11x17 size paper with words of hope, thanks to frontline staff, healthcare workers, teachers, etc, generally any positive message.  Would be a great way to show off the creativity of the wonderful students and celebrate the people that have been fighting this virus on our behalf as well as celebrate the the positive step that the vaccine is in returning us to a "normal".

I engaged the principal at the local school, Bridgeview Public School, to provide some pictures and paintings to brighten the community hall clinic and it was extremely well received.  I will attached some heartwarming emails I received from the Public Health nurses showing their gratitude. 

I don't have a minimum or maximum amount I am asking for.  I can accommodate just a few or can homes for hundreds and hundreds of pieces of art.  In addition to the school art initiative we are working with Lambton County to collect and display the art of our local artists within the clinic as well.

There is a slight urgency to this as the clinics start soon (week of March 22) but I handle getting a steady flow of artwork coming in over a few days or weeks if that is needed.

Thank you

The PEO Lambton Chapter is very excited to once again offer our Lambton County Secondary School students a unique opportunity; we have partnered with the City of Sarnia to provide the students with a design challenge competition! 

This will be our 2nd year running the challenge after our first attempt (2019/20) was a huge success.

Similar to the previous challenge, the City of Sarnia has given us a “project” (related to improving accessibility within Sarina) that the students can develop a solution for over the course of 4 months.   We’re planning to have a “Kick-off” meeting on October 28 to announce the project to the students,

In March (for National Engineering Month) the students will present their ideas to the City (likely in the Council Chambers with the Mayor attending!).  There is a possibility that the chosen design could actually be built next summer as well!

Please send this flyer to all your students. Our Museum is an educational facility. We have historical artifacts relating to military and some household items. We cover the Boer War, WWI, WWII, Korea and Afghanistan War. Many of our items are one of a kind.
We have been in existence since 1995.

We are hoping to engage families in the community to work together and make scarecrows for the annual Cornfest in August. The tradition of scarecrows is especially relevant to Watford Warwick's rural roots and agricultural focus.
This year we are offering a workshop before the event so we can teach children about the history of scarecrows and how to create an effective one.
Note we usually have the children take home a small flyer so I have attached those in case you want to use them. We can also supply the handouts if you prefer. Thanks Holly

Western Fair is back this September and School Tours are TOO!

Join us this fall, when our live agri-food education tours begin again.  Students can get hands-on experience with a variety of animal experts, livestock breed displays, and various crops. Tours begin Monday, September 12, 2022 until Friday, September 16, 2022 from 10:00am-2:00pm.  

If your class can’t join us in person this September, or you are looking for more online ag-education we’ve got you covered.   Connect with our school tour team the week of September 26, 2022 for a live stream education opportunity directly from the farm.   Virtually walk and talk with farmers as they take you through a portion of their barn and daily chores while you ask questions and learn.

Interested in coming out or tuning in? Sign up here https://www.westernfair.ca/school-ag-tours to pre-register for the return of this unique agri-food educational experience. Space is limited. Pre-register early to guarantee your classroom a spot.
More information will be released in the coming weeks and if you have any questions please reach out to us at thegrove@westernfairdistrict.com
Looking forward to seeing you in person again,
The Western Fair School Tour Team
