March Lunch & Learn - Healthy Yard Maintenance Tips to Protect Your Watershed with Annette DeMaria, P.E. PMP

March Lunch & Learn - Healthy Yard Maintenance Tips to Protect Your Watershed with Annette DeMaria, P.E. PMP

For residents of Plymouth, Canton, and Westland, we are part of the Rouge River watershed. The Rouge River watershed encompasses 48 communities throughout SE Michigan serving 1.35 million people. It’s a critical regional resource for recreational opportunities, wildlife habitats, and even drinking water.

We are connected to the Rouge watershed through our storm water runoff and storm drain systems. Things we do at our homes and yards drain directly into the watershed. Practicing healthy habits in your yard helps filter pollutants before they reach the watershed.

As spring approaches, Annette DeMaria, Executive Director of the Alliance of Rouge Communities, will provide tips for homeowners to keep a beautiful yard while reducing their impact on the watershed. Topics to be discussed include alternatives to household chemicals, the use of fertilizers and pesticides, and proper disposal of pet waste.

We hope you will join us for this free Lunch and Learn event at the Plymouth District Library on March 15th at 11:30 am.

Preventing Elder Fraud - Lunch & Learn

Preventing Elder Fraud - Lunch & Learn


Preventing Elder Fraud

Wednesday, December 14, 2022 - 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Statistics show that an increasing number of people, in general, are falling victim to scams. Part of the problem is that scammers are highly adaptable and can mimic legitimate communications from romantic partners, tech support staff, and government employees. One group particularly affected by this issue is the elderly. Those homeowners with healthy financial savings, good credit scores, and a trusting nature often prove to be attractive targets for scammers.

Elder fraud is on the rise and has resulted in over a billion dollars in losses in 2021. Learn about scams targeting older adults, what to do if you are a victim of fraud, and how best to protect yourself and your loved ones.  

We hope you will join the conversation Wednesday, December 14th.


When: Wednesday, December 14, 2022 - 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Where:  Canton Administration Building - First Floor Board Room

1150 Canton Center Rd., Canton, MI 48187

Cost: FREE (but we do ask that you register so we have enough seating)

Please bring your lunch or something to nibble on.
