Kanata South has won the ward award for highest participation rates in all of Ottawa 5 times in the last 6 years in the Spring Cleaning the Capital Campaign. Let’s do it again this year! Gather a group of family, friends and neighbors to clean up a park or other public area near you. Register you project online http://ottawa.ca/en/residents/water-and-environment/green-living/cleaning-capital to receive free cleaning supplies. All projects registered by April 14th qualify for early-bird prizes.
Cleaning the Capital Weekend is on April 28 – 30th. Steve Rahm is organizing a clean up of the Eva James, Deevy Pines and Hydro Lines area. Anyone interested is welcome to join in! They will be meeting outside the Eva James Community Centre at 9:30am on Saturday, April 29th for garbage bags, litter pickup tools, and refreshments. Then volunteers disperse through the park and meet back at the Centre around 11:30 for free pizza and desserts, compliments of Gabriels, MACs, and Hurleys Grill.
No advance registration is necessary, and participation in this event will apply towards high school volunteer hours. Details will also be posted in the Community Centre, around the park, and neighbourhood mailboxes or contact Mark at firstname.lastname@example.org.
