Spring Cleanup

Main Street Cleanup Completed!

Thank you to our energetic early morning riser volunteers, Chris Parks, Rebecca Rathwell, Terry Walker, and Doug Kuyvenhoven, who cleaned up the main street on Friday morning!
Five (5) bags of garbage were collected. The dirt was swept away where the sidewalks meet the buildings, and all the doorway alcoves, along both sides of the main street from Patrick Street to Victoria Street. Chris Parks used a leaf blower to blow the dirt into the gutters.
The cleanup operation took 1-1/2 hours, followed by well deserved coffee and donuts at Tim Hortons.
Let’s work together as citizens and business owners to keep our main street in tip top clean condition. If you see cups or cans on the sidewalk or in the gutter, please pick them up and put them in the garbage. Together we will make a difference.
