2012 Community Cleanup

Who?: A Colony is 'hosting' our 2nd annual Community Cleanup. We've invited the parents and siblings of our Colony, to join us as we help "Take care of the world" right here in our own neighborhood. We have also extended the invitation to all of the other local Beaver colonies and Cub packs, so there should be a great turnout of scouters of all ages.

What? For the second year in a row, we've registered with the City of Ottawa's Cleaning the Capital program.
When? Saturday, September 29. We are asking for one (1) hour of help, between 10AM and 1PM. We know that family weekends are busy, we hope that asking for one hour of time any time within this 3 hour window will provide you with enough flexibility to be able to fit this into your day.

Where? We're setting up in the Mountain Meadows parking lot, off of Spratt Road here in Riverside South. We plan on cleaning the entire park, including the forested area in behind the retail strip, all the way to the fence line that separates the B.G.M. school yard from the park.

Why? Parks get messy, and Beavers like to help.

You may notice that this Saturday is also our Riverside South Community Association's, fall cleanup. It should be a busy day out in our neighborhood.

We will have cleaning supplies (Garbage bags, gloves, and paper compost bags) on site courtesy of the city program. As well as some juice boxes kindly donated by our friends at Moncion's YIG.

Please dress appropriately for spending an hour outside, closed toed shoes are recommended. Beaver hats are encouraged, full beaver uniforms are not required.
