Last Week of Community Clean-up + End of Month Prizes!

It’s the sixth and last week of Clean Community Month in Thompson, and this week, we’re cleaning up ALL of Thompson! Anywhere! If you see a problem spot, gather your friends and pick it up, to enter to win!

Send us your photos and the names of your clean-up team for a chance to win a Hub of the North Hoodie, a prize pack from Recycle Everywhere and the Thompson Recycling Center, Two Vale swag bags, and this week’s big prize from Canadian Tire: a 6-foot Pelican Sit-on-top kayak! Perfect for this season: who knows, maybe we’ll have more water than land by the end of August!

Contest extended by one week!

We’ve had a lot of wet and cold weather during this contest, and we feel that residents didn’t have much time to get out and about on the dry days. Now that it looks like summer is here properly here, we want to make the most of it.

We’re offering up another week of prizes between June 26 and July 3, for a city-wide clean-up. If you see a problem spot *anywhere* in town, clean it up and send us your photos!

GRAND PRIZE DRAWS!

A number of businesses and community organizations approached us throughout the contest to donate their own prizes to the contest. We’ve saved them up until the end, and we’ll be raffling them all off on Monday, July 6! Everyone who took part in Clean Community Month, and who hasn’t won a weekly prize, is eligible to win!

Week 4 of Clean Community Month Starts Today!

It’s the fourth week of Clean Community Month in Thompson, and this week, we’re in the Westwood and Burntwood areas!

Send us your photos and the names of your clean-up team for a chance to win a Hub of the North Hoodie, a prize pack from Recycle Everywhere and the Thompson Recycling Center, and this week’s big prize from Canadian Tire: A two-piece CANVAS Beaumount Patio Chair set!

As the wind picks up, it seems like there’s still plenty of litter still blowing into the downtown area. We’re more than happy to accept entries from downtown cleaners as well!


Thank you to our sponsors!

THANKS TO ALL OF OUR VOLUNTEERS THIS WEEK!

Thank you to EVERYONE who participated in Week 3: Individuals can’t win the draw a second time, but if you go out to clean up again, other members of your team definitely can! If you didn’t win last week, you can still participate and get a second chance this week!

Thompson Connect Launches Today!

As a City, we’re always looking for new ways to ensure residents the information they need, exactly when they need it. We also recognize that not everyone is comfortable with social media, or with the web. That’s why we’re launching Thompson Connect!

Thompson-Connect pushes messages, updates, and alerts directly to you, through either text messages, emails, and even automated voice calls. That includes messages sent out through the Canada-wide Alert Ready emergency messaging system.

Connect will also be able to deliver area-specific notices for issues like water breaks, road closures, events, and more! You won’t be bogged down with messages about water breaks on the other side of town.

Sign up today at www.thompson.ca/p/connect! Once you sign up, you’ll receive your own password in case you need to change your settings in the future. You can also call City Hall and ask for a physical registration form!

Residents registered with Manitoba White Pages will also be receiving an automated call informing them of the new system, encouraging them to register. This is the ONLY time that we will utilize White Page listings, other than a city-wide emergency. Otherwise, only registrants will be contacted.
