Tidbit #1: After many years of dedicated service to our community saving water, Les Watery has retired. His replacements are a bit shorter, and one is definitely in need of training. Join the Water-Wise Scavenger Hunt on April 6 to help us find Naughty Gordon so Jerome, the good gnome, can show him how to save water. The hunt will take you around the downtown area of New Smyrna Beach, and you will receive some fantastic water conservation items along the way, and have a chance to win an amazing garden cart full of fun! It all starts at 10 am in front of the Utilities Commission at 200 Canal Street. And if you see Gordon before then, tell him his lazy days are numbered!


Tidbit #2: Please join the Utilities Commission needs your help to find a missing garden gnome! The search is on at our 8th annual Water-Wise Garden Fair, Saturday April 6th on Canal Street, starting at 10 am. We will have fun water conservation activities for the whole family, and hunt for GORDON, the wayward garden gnome! He is supposed to be in the garden with his brother Jerome, planting flowers and saving water. But he’s not! Find him and you can win a garden trolley full of great prizes. We will also have inflatables for the kids and our ever-popular painted rain barrel raffle! Check your March Utilities bill insert for more information. We can’t wait to see you there!
