It was a pleasant morning on May 13 for our annual spring clean-up. And the turn-out was outstanding! 60 volunteers of all ages signed in on Saturday morning and helped to spruce up the Greenway, collectively filling over 200 garbage bags.
The community embraced our event as families, individuals and businesses came out to support the effort.
Special thanks to the Marin family for coming out and bringing Dakota Family Foods with them to hand out free hot dogs to volunteers! 50 free dogs were served by the time the event wrapped up.
A large group of 14 volunteers from Celero turned this into a multi-day event, coming out on Friday to clean up a section of the Greenway. Their effort is very much appreciated, as they tackled a section of the Greenway quite far from the "home base" at St. Mary's Rd and one that sees a lot of traffic.
The United Church in Meadowood and All Saints Kinsmen added to the effort, among many others. It was truly a group effort.
At the end of the day, the Greenway team delivered an amazing 490 kg of garbage to the landfill! That does not include the truck-full that the City of Winnipeg picked up from the folks who came out on Friday. It was possibly our most productive clean-up ever!
Thank you to everyone who came out!
