The weather has us beat. If you’ve signed up to help this weekend with the ward 2 team… hold on to your rake for another week… we’ll try it on the 29th instead… here’s the official press release about it!
Clean and Green Participants,
It seems that mother nature is just not going to cooperate for the clean-up this weekend, so even though we’ve been trying to remain optimistic and the weather forecast is predicting some sun by Saturday it doesn’t seem that this will be in time to melt the thickness of the ice we have accumulated and it will be very difficult if not impossible to pick-up litter hidden under the ice.
We’re trying to avoid a “clean and white” therefore we have decided to postpone the Clean and Green event and celebratory BBQ to the following Saturday April 28th. All the event details will remain the same, it is just the date that is changing and we hope to see many of you at the Picnic Shelter at Riverside Park at noon to celebrate after a job well done next weekend.
If your group is not available to postpone to next weekend and you would still like to go ahead as planned this Saturday please let us know by reply email and we will have our staff pick-up any garbage you do collect on Monday. Otherwise we will assume you will join us next week instead.
The clean-up kit pick-ups time and dates will remain the same, they are available for pick-up today April 18th and Thursday April 19th at the front desk at the Victoria Road Recreation Centre, 151 Victoria Road N between the hours of 7a.m.-8p.m. As mentioned previously, for those interested, Universal Precautions (sharps) training will be available on a drop in basis at this location in the willow room from 12pm- 7pm on April 18th and 19th.
Thank you all again so much for your amazing support in keeping our community clean, this year 1,280 of you signed up, the most participants we’ve ever had!
