Fruits of the @ChamplainPark spring cleanup today. Thanks to all who helped out. Strangest thing found in the woods was an old leather suitcase.
Actually, if you think about it, that’s likely a civil servant briefcase, possibly accidentally dropped by one of our neighbours from Tunney’s Pasture. It was “grossly mouldy” inside, so no worry about leaked documents.
Due to the rain and generally miserable weather on Saturday, and fieldhouse scheduling conflicts, the Spring Cleanup has been moved to Sunday April 28. Meet at the fieldhouse at noon (not 10). See https://champlainpark.org/2019/04/19/spring-cleanup-2019/ for the rest of the details.
27 28 WE CLEAN IT UP.
Champlain Park is looking for volunteers for our annual Spring Cleanup. The snow has gone and debris accumulated over a long winter has started to appear. Now’s the time to get it! Later, spring growth makes us pull out more grass than trash, and we wouldn’t want to do that.
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.
Due to rain on Saturday and fieldhouse scheduling, we’ll meet at the fieldhouse on Sunday, April 28 at 12 noon. 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 in a couple of hours.
The designated cleanup areas are the south side of Amanda above the transitway; the boulevard on Northwestern and the path at its north end; and along the fence on Patricia and Pontiac and in the Champlain Woods between the fence and the parkway. It also includes the beach area along the river at the foot of Carleton, and 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.
