Municipal Awareness Day
Join us as we celebrate Municipal Awareness Day on May 10, 2017.
Municipal Awareness Day is an opportunity to shine the light on the accomplishments and importance of Municipal Government. It also provides an opportunity to highlight the many municipal services offered to residents.
The City is offering free recreational activities to all residents on Wednesday, May 10:
- Free skate at the Glacier Arena from 12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
- Free skate at the Summit Centre from 11:45 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
During Municipal Awareness Day, Council members will visit local schools throughout Mount Pearl to teach students in grades K-12 about the work of local government and to encourage them to become actively engaged on municipal issues.
An informed youth population will be more empowered and likely to vote, volunteer, work, and take a leadership role in their community. Municipal Awareness Day provides an opportunity to attract the next generation of municipal leaders.
To further educate our youth population on municipal affairs, the City, in partnership with the Mount Pearl Citizens’ Crime Prevention Committee and the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary (RNC), will hold their annual Officer for a Day event on Friday, May 12, 2017. This also marks the beginning of Police Week.
Mount Pearl students in grades 4-6 have made personalized cards for City law enforcement officers as a thank you for their service. Out of the cards submitted, two lucky students will be selected to join Cst. Ken Milks, RNC, and Cst. Danielle Greavette, City of Mount Pearl, as Jr. Officers for the day. The students will take part in various activities designed to introduce them to the world of law enforcement.
