2012 Community Cleanup - Summary

Thanks to all who came out and supported our 2012 Community Cleanup this past Saturday. It was a huge success. Not only did we have many Beavers and Cub's helping, but some folks at the park offered to help us out too.

The highlight for me, was the funny look of frustration on some of our Beavers faces later in the day. We combed the park so well, that some folks had a hard time finding any trash to pick up. Sort of frustrating, but at the same time, kind of awesome. that's a clean park!

As a leading sponsor of the City of Ottawa's Cleaning the Capital initiative, a Rogers Community Cruiser showed up at around noon, with hot chocolate, coffee, and timbits for everyone. What a nice surprise that was.

Some pictures below, thank you once again to those who were able to join us.
