Cleaning Up the Town

April 21 to 27 is Pitch-In Week and while the Town is not participating directly in that initiative, I encourage Peace River residents to do what they can to help clean up the town.

For instance, have you taken the time yet to sweep the sidewalk in front of your house, apartment, or business? Now that the snow is gone, this is a small thing that each of us can do to help the town look much cleaner. Swept sidewalks are so much more appealing to walk on than ones covered in grit and garbage.

Another thing we can each do is take a bag with us when we walk and stop to pick up garbage along the way, like Councillor Laurin has done for years. Imagine if 4000+ adults picked up a few pieces of garbage and we all swept our sidewalks how quickly the town would get rid of that spring grubbiness!
