Volunteers sought for Community Cleanup

Your help is needed to make this year’s downtown Tim Horton’s Community Clean Up a sparkling success

Your help is needed to make this year’s downtown Tim Horton’s Community Clean Up a sparkling success.

The third annual Tim Hortons Community Cleanup is hosted by Greenways Land Trust and Communities in Bloom on July 16. Volunteers are asked to meet behind Banners Restaurant to help clean-up garbage from downtown Campbell River at 10 a.m. The event is between 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. This is an opportunity to help keep your downtown Campbell River beautiful and garbage free. All the equipment and garbage bags will be provided, so all you need to bring is an enthusiastic attitude.

This clean up is a great way to do something positive for your community and being only two hours long, it will not take up much of your day.  Volunteers will be provided with T-shirts, mugs, fresh coffee, Tim Bits and other goodies thanks to Tim Horton’s. Greenways Land Trust is excited to help create another successful community cleanup with Tim Hortons and Communities in Bloom. Come down and meet your fellow community members in a fun event. We hope to see you there.

For more information call Stacey at 287-3785 or e-mail: greenways@greenwaystrust.ca. Greenways Land Trust also has a website at: www.greenwaystrust.ca.
