Community Cleanup Day

Community Cleanup Day: Earth Day Sunday April 22 was Community Cleanup Day and with sun and warm temperatures, it seemed that winter had finally released us from its icy grip and that spring had finally arrived. Fred Hamilton, George Ben, and Roxton Road Parkette were all much cleaner than they had been in years past but with the efforts of many volunteers, the parks were finely polished just in time for Community Environment Day on Saturday May 5. 10 until 2:00 PM.

While cleaning up, several people walking in the park thanked the volunteers for their efforts and commented on how clean the parks were. Thanks to Tim, Melana, John, Soren, Annika, Tony, Jill, and Bob for their cleanup efforts. Thanks to John for some special projects in Fred’s!

Soren and Bob shared prizes for the most “exotic” finds of the day. Soren found what appeared to be fragments of an alien spaceship and Bob found a Bic lighter with the Maple Leafs’ logo!

See you in the park!
