We want to thank everyone who came out to our second Clean-up event this past Saturday. It was a large and enthusiastic group; we had a hard time getting everyone in the group photo 🙂
Everyone put in a great effort. We filled 33 garbage bags! One-third with recyclables and the rest with litter or smaller dumped items. We also created a pile of miscellaneous large objects that had been dumped in or beside the ravine. It was a chance to crack some jokes with neighbours we knew, as well as meet new neighbours. If this sounds like a nice Saturday morning to you, why don’t you join us for one of our next events:
April 15th Dora Spencer & Portage Gdns. Park – meet 10 am, Weston at Dora Spencer
April 22nd Lambton & Astoria ravine edges – meet 10 am, Lambton at Astoria
April 29th Emmett Ave. – meet 10 am, Emmett at Verona
Our clean-ups happen in public areas, especially along the ravine edges and last for just two hours. Garbage bags, gloves and other equipment will be provided. Why not get some exercise in the fresh air, meet neighbours you might not know, and help beautify some of the areas which make Mount Dennis special. All ages are welcome. Students can earn community hours.
MDCA again has a co-sponsor. One hour plus of clean-up work earns you a “half-off any drink” supercoffee coupon. If you also tweet or Instagram a clean-up photo tagging @supercoffeeMD & @MountDennisCA, then your drink is completely FREE.
