Litter Blitz - Three Parks in Ward 10
Similar to last year, I am hosting a Litter Blitz clean-up to tidy up a few of the recreational areas in our ward. This is a great opportunity to give back to the community and "do something good together" with family, neighbours and friends. We'll begin in the north at 9:30 on Saturday, May 9.
- 9:30 - 10:30 am: Stonewood Park - Sandhurst Drive (east of Rosehurst Dr.)
- 11:00 am - noon: Osprey Marsh - Pondview Way (eastern cul de sac)
- 12:30 - 1:30 pm: O'Connor Park - Bala Drive (opposite Passion Flower Blvd.)
Come for one hour or help out with all three! I will be giving away a rain barrel at each of the park clean-ups! I'll provide the gloves and garbage bags, you provide the people-power. Together, we can keep Ward 10 looking beautiful!
