Free sunscreen dispensers are now available at the St. Marys Quarry and Pyramid Recreation Centre splash pad. The dispensers were installed as part of Perth District Health Unit’s “Protect all the skin you’re in” campaign, funded through a grant from the John and Colleen MacDonald Family Fund, held within the Stratford Perth Community Foundation.
Town of St. Marys staff and the Health Unit are hoping the dispensers will encourage the public to apply sunscreen more often, thereby reducing their risk for sun burns and skin cancer.
