Join Mission Adopt-A-Block this weekend

The Pick and Pub event happens March 17 along Mission's waterfront

The Mission Adopt-A-Block Society is holding its first-ever Pick and Pub event March 17 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

It will include a clean-up around the waterfront, followed by an afternoon lunch and festivities at the Captain’s Cabin Pub.

Volunteers are encouraged to dress up in costume for their chance to win prizes; just remember to wear green to show your support. The Cabin is offering a special event menu for participants, which includes three meal choices, including a drink, for $7.50.

Registration happens at the AAB office (in the Mission Recycling Centre, 7229 Mershon St.) from 11-11:30 a.m., and you will be provided with the needed clean-up equipment.

For more information, to donate prizes or to pre-register please call 604-826-9423 or e-mail missionadoptablock@gmail.com.
