Open Streets Windsor – Ontario 150 Celebration Volunteers and Community Partners Wanted!
Open Streets Windsor returns this September with an Ontario 150 Celebration to connect our diverse neighbourhoods and people across our community on Sunday, September 17, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (new extended hours!) As thousands witnessed during our two dates in July and September of last year, this free community event will see an eight kilometre route along Sandwich Street, University Avenue West, Wyandotte Street East and Drouillard Road temporarily opened to people but closed to cars. Once again, event organizers are looking for volunteers, as well as individuals, organizations and businesses to contribute ideas and activities at hubs along the massive event route.
New this year: We will have an entire hub at Open Streets dedicated to Ontario's 150th Anniversary and the magnificent history and diversity in our community. Visit the Ontario 150 Hub on University Avenue between Bruce and Janette. Learn about using 3D printing to create a model of our provincial flower - the Trillium. Take a break from the route to sit and enjoy a musical or dance performance by one of our many multicultural groups. View the Museum Windsor and First Nations exhibits or join in with everyone painting a mural. Enjoy a cupcake or cookie as you celebrate Ontario's 150 with your friends, family and neighbours.
Open Streets Windsor – Ontario 150 Celebration is quickly approaching, and we would like you to participate.
- We are looking for more volunteers than ever who are fun, friendly and excited about making a difference! Volunteer shifts: 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. or 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Duties include greeting, safety monitoring and supervision of roadway barricades.
- In addition to providing a space for people to walk, cycle, roller blade, etc. along the route, hubs are designated for individuals, businesses and organizations to carry out activities that promote health, physical activity, arts and culture, and that’s where you come in! Activities must be free and encourage the greatest possible participation from people of all ages and abilities.
