Saturday is the first day of summer and Springhill is ready to celebrate with a day of events and food at the Dr. Carson and Marion Murray Community Centre. To get ready for summer, Springhill recently held a community cleanup where groups, organization and volunteers like (from left) Alexa, Brooke and Corey Galloway were outfitted with T-shirts from Tim Hortons and treated to barbecue for their hard work to make the town look its best for summer.
Springhill Leisure Services has a day of fun, food and laser tag scheduled for the Lions Park, come rain or shine.
A three-on-three basketball tournament is scheduled, weather pending. The double-elimination tournament costs $4 per person and offers a free barbecue afterwards.
Meanwhile, between none and 4 p.m., the centre will host a laser tag event inside the Dr. Carson and Marion Murray Community Centre. Cost is $5 per game or $25 for the day, and matches will feature up to 20 players at a time.
Coinciding with the summer kickoff at the centre, the Springhill Community Garden will have a planting day, complete with barbecue, face painting and instruction. That runs between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., with the barbecue scheduled for noon.
