Community Pride

Community Pride

How can we make our Stewart a better place?

Change a piece of your community, discover what it means to be an active citizen, and build a commitment to take action in new and exciting ways.

Spread warmth and cheer - in the real community, you could drop by a new neighbors house with a hot welcoming apple pie; in a virtual community you could spread good news and gather the community in a group effort to deliver congratulations or kudos.


Take pride in your community - when you love your community and participate as an active and committed member, the pride will come naturally.


What can you do:

  • Adopt a Street - The Adopt A Street program is a way that families, groups, clubs or businesses can contribute to the community and enhance the level of community pride in their surrounding area by reducing litter.
  • Clean up Days - Clean Up Stewart Days is a Spring community event. Please, take this opportunity to clean up your yards.
  • Help elderly – take a pride and pleasure in helping those that need it most.
  • Canada Day Activities – join us July 1 for the annual Canada Day parade and celebrations. Show your community pride by entering a float, volunteering or donating to the event
  • Beautify your town – join our Town beautification team (contact Councillor Lynn for more information)
  • Learn about the history of your town - Learning where you come from will help you understand why you’re there, and increase your appreciation of where you live.  Learn about the people who founded the town where we live.  Learn about the cultural history that shaped, and continues to influence Stewart. Join Stewart Historical Society.
  • Visit your Library - Invaluable public resources are kept and maintained for our enrichment, convenience, accessibility, and enjoyment, and a Library is a public place that we can all enjoy.  Get out of your house once in a while and see what your community — and your tax dollars — have to offer.
  • Buy local - Support your local community by shopping locally.
  • Cemetery Care - Take care of your loved one's final resting place.  The well-kept Cemetery reflects community pride and respect for past residents; displaying the philosophy "We take care of our town".
