TOBACCO - FREE POLICY FOR INDOOR AND OUTDOOR FACILITIES The Town of Stratford recognizes that exposure of non-smokers to tobacco smoke (passive smoking) is hazardous to health and that non-smokers should be protected. Passive smoking can lead to serious illnesses in adults, such as bronchitis, lung cancer and cardiovascular disease. Children can also develop chest illnesses and asthma from exposure to tobacco smoke. The Town of Stratford also recognizes that the use of tobacco in any form is harmful to the user. The use of spit tobacco (snuff, chew, plug, etc.) has severe health risks. Spit tobacco usage is known to cause serious illnesses such as cancers of the throat and mouth, leukoplakia, gum and tooth disease and loss of bone in jaw. It is also understood that children and young adults do not recognize the health hazards of spit tobacco as commonly as the threats of smoking. Accordingly, the following policy has been developed by the Town of Stratford to protect the health of all concerned with an emphasis is place on children. Children who are in frequent contact with adults who smoke are also more likely to become smokers themselves. All Properties & facilities owned by the Town are designated tobacco-free as of October 1, 2007.

Build-a-Birdhouse Event This winter, the Stratford Area Watershed Improvement Group is hosting a series called “Building Better Backyards for Birds”. Birds are amazing creatures who often have a difficult time in increasingly urban areas, with decreased food sources and declining environmental quality.

Our next event in this series is “Build-a-Birdfeeder” on Saturday, April 11 from 9:30-11:30am at the Stratford Town Centre. Families and birders alike are all invited to assemble a wooden birdbox to help give a local tree swallow family a place to nest in spring. Due to limited space, pre-registration is required. Please contact Kelley Arnold, Watershed Coordinator, at 902-367-3605 or at [email protected] for further information on this and upcoming SAWIG events.
