A big thank you to all who participated in 2018 Parks Cleanup this past Saturday May 5, 2018. Community residents gathered at 6 separate parks to pick up garbage, rake leaves, and sweep sand, helping to keep our neighbourhood parks beautiful, safe and inviting for children.
The event was organized by Board Member Sarah Ritskes, supported greatly by the staff from the RBC at 1330 Baseline Road, who graciously volunteered to serve as park captains at 5 locations, and lent many hands all around. The RBC team is pictured below.
Volunteers enjoyed a pizza lunch at the community centre, provided at a discount by Pizza Pizza.
Overall, the day was a great success. Our parks are cleaner, and hopefully no one got sun burned on such a beautiful day. Thanks to everyone who helped!
