Hello FOSS members and friends,

We are well into spring, and summer is not far off. It has been a different year, but "Friends of Sam Smith Park" (FOSS) has managed to continue many activities none-the less. Some of these have been virtual, like our Dec.- Feb. on-line videos and kids activities, and our current Spring Bird Festival. Others have been more hands-on, like our Winter Bird Feeder Project from Dec.- March at the Skating Trail, and the new grebe nesting platforms in the yacht club basin.

Our usual FOSS membership year runs from May 1- April 30. Last year we did not collect memberships at all, due to the COVID-19 situation, with less going on at the park. This year we would like to start collecting memberships again, since we have had a number of expenses, and our bank account is running very low! The major expense this year has been materials for building 3 new grebe platforms for the yacht club basin, since only 1 of our 4 platforms survived the winter. Labour was donated free! The grebes are now using all 4 platforms for their nests, so this expense was well worth it.

FOSS membership is $10 individual or $15 for a family. Please consider renewing your FOSS membership for 2021-2022, or joining FOSS, by mailing the attached form with a cheque to the address given.

Thanks very much for your interest in Colonel Samuel Smith Park!
