THANKS TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED IN THE CLEAN UP DAY
We woke to an overcast sky and a bit of rain, but it broke by time 10am came along. Over a dozen families braved the chill and met in front of Earl Beatty to take on the task of cleaning up the neighbourhood. Moms, Dads, and kids donned gloves and carried bags to their assigned spots - the front playground, the back playground, the parking lot, and all the streets that surround the Earl Beatty Community were picked clear of litter. The gardens and the playgrounds got a good sprucing too - wood chips swept and put back where they belong and last year's perennials and shrubs pruned for the spring.
We shared our stories and drank hot chocolate after we were done. This event was hosted by the Earl Beatty School, Eco-team and Community Centre. Thanks to all who participated - the grounds and surrounding streets are ready for the warmer weather.
