PSAC members from all across downtown Sydney came out to join us for a workplace barbecue on Monday, August 9th. Sydney's own Rangelight Cafe provided hamburgers and hotdogs to 250 people in the Dorchester street courtyard, located right next to Sydney's government offices. Members attended from Service Canada, the Canadian Revenue Agency, Correctional Services and Veterans Affairs. The next two winners of our Gifts With A Twist prize baskets were CEIU members Claudette Macdonald and Jana (no last name given.) Congratulations!

 A  luncheon was held for  the offices of Service Canada, USGE and RCMP in Montague on Wednesday, August 11th.

On Tuesday, August 3rd, PSAC held a BBQ at the Service Canada Building in Harbour Grace.  Twenty-three dollars was collected for the Breast Cancer Foundation.  It was a slower BBQ than usual due to its being cancelled because of the inclement weather the week before but overall, this Tuesday was a beautiful day and it was great to meet with our PSAC members in Harbour Grace.

On Wednesday August 4th, PSAC operated a very successful Think Public booth at the Royal St. John's Regatta.  There was free face painting, balloon animals, Freezies and prize draws.  PSAC Think Public pamphlets were distributed and awareness items in the form of stickers, fans, frisbees and washable tattoos.

A Think Public event was held on Saturday, July 31st at the South Shore Actiplex in Crapaud.

This event included face painting, distribution of pamphlets and answering questions on pensions and public services.

The “Public Services are Cool” coloring books designed by summer student Racheal Francis, were also distributed and sparked many questions regarding public services. T-shirts and Frisbees were also popular handouts.

Hundreds of people attended this event and many of them stopped at our booth.
