May is Membership Month

Each year in May, we ask Briargreen residents to support the activities of the Briargreen Community Association (BCA) with the payment of a membership fee. We suggest $10 for single or couples, and $20 for families with children
but we welcome contributions in any amount.

Only with your support through your voluntary payment of the annual membership fee can the Briargreen Community Association continue to provide this important role in our community. We thank you for your continued support!

Briargreen Community Garage Sale

Friday May 26th 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Rain or shine!

Our Annual Garage Sale is not just about clearing out your basement and garage of old items — we want to see your crafts and hobbies on display as well! It’s also a great time to wander the neighbourhood and reacquaint yourselves with neighbours who have been hibernating all winter!

Why not break out your baking pans and sell some treats? Cookies, cupcakes, and pies are always in high demand — and it’s hard to pass up a kid’s lemonade stand, too!
We also know the neighbourhood is loaded with talented individuals both young and old.


Set up your guitar, drums, tap shoes, violins, etc., and show off your skills — don’t forget the tip jar! It can be great way to earn a little money for yourself, or raise awareness for your favourite charity.

19th Nepean Cubs & Scouts Door-to-Door Bottle Drive

Wednesday April 18th 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The east side of neighborhood (between park and Centrepointe) will be canvassed

Briargreen's 19th Nepean Cubs and Scouts will be doing their spring door-to-door bottle drive over two upcoming dates:

Donations either of cash or of empty refundable bottles and cans are accepted.  This is a fundraiser for 19th Nepean, and the revenue from refunds are fully and directly used for essential program expenses (like meeting and storage facilities, equipment purchase and repair, activity materials, training and education, subsidizing field trip and outing fees, and so on).

If you wish to make a donation but will not be home when Scouts canvass your section of the neighborhood, you may leave your donation on your porch for pickup.  If you want to be rid of your empties beforehand, call Scouter Charles at (613) 596-0382 to arrange an earlier pickup.

Thanks again for your generous support!
