MAY 3 WE CLEAN IT UP.
Champlain Park is looking for volunteers for our annual Spring Cleanup. The snow is finally melting, and trash accumulated over a long winter has started to appear.
The cleanup, part of the City’s Cleaning the Capital campaign, is a chance for neighbours of all ages – kids, teens, and adults – to get together, say hello, and help spruce up the neighbourhood. Last year 33 people showed up – a wonderful turnout.
We’ll meet at the fieldhouse on Saturday, May 3 at 10 a.m. Juice, coffee, and cookies will be served. There is a map so that people can choose an area to work on. We’ll wrap up by noon. In case of rain, we’ll meet instead on Sunday, May 4.
The designated cleanup areas are the south side of Premier above the transitway; the boulevard on Northwestern and the path at its north end; and the areas along the fence on Patricia and Pontiac. It can also include the area along the river at the foot of Carleton, or any other public spaces you think could use some help.
We recommend wearing pants and long-sleeved shirts, appropriate footwear and gloves. The City will provide garbage bags.
If you have any questions or suggestions, call Andrea Murphy or Ian Reid at 613-715-9504.
