SUMMER UPDATE from Dieppe... 
"Water conservation is super important! πŸ’¦ If you're watering your lawn, garden, or plants, do so before 8 a.m. or after 6 p.m., and only when it’s not raining. Keep it to a max of two hours a day. Just a heads-up: if your house number is even, you can water on even days, and if it’s odd, you can water on odd days. πŸ”— Bylaw 78-5: https://dieppe.cc/42sdp7z"

It's Too Hot for School #HeatDome #EarlyDismissals

Icymi, it's hot. 


It's so hot that Franc South School District has given the OK for parents to keep kids home today if they want (paraphrase) and Anglo East Schools around here are doing early dismissal (it's basically a half-day now.) They are quick to mention that any proms/ award ceremonies/ special events can still go ahead...

Facebook Marketplace Scam Awareness!

CBC News has a story about a lady in Fredericton who sold something on Marketplace and instead of the person paying her $30, they stole $3000 (*or tried to) from her account. How? It seems like she received a message about the e-transfer with a link... when she clicked that link, the lady thought she was logging into her banking site but the criminal was actually able to steal that banking log-in info (and steal money.)

Smile Cookies from Tim Hortons Help Kids and Charities right here in our area! Also, Alternative Uses for Smile Cookies!!

It's Smile Cookie season until until Sunday (May 5, 2024)!!
When you buy a Smile Cookie at your fave Tim Hortons you will be helping local charities like Timbits minor sports programs and more! Thanks for helping kids!
BTW, there are some places where you can order them online.

*Dog Depicts Usual Reaction. (via Tim Hortons website)

Thoughts, Tips, and Tricks:
 
Science has proven that Smile Cookies are delicious, but did you know that they're also good listeners? It feels great to have someone who'll listen to you complain about how you're the only one at work who does anything. After a nice conversation, you get to eat the delicious cookie, which is nice. 

Smile Cookies are good listeners

You can also use Smile Cookies to impress colleagues...

results may not vary. ever. this will happen 100% of the time.
 
Also utilize a Smile Cookie to rehearse the soliloquy from Hamlet...


You can even use Smile Cookies to end the constant slashing-of-your-tires by your disgruntled employees *recommended for members of management*

employees slashing your tires? buy them a smile cookie!
