Our group of volunteers first want to give a big shout out to the students of Rideau Vista Public School and St Edward’s School for the stellar job they did picking up garbage and raking leaves a couple of weeks ago. When the Village Clean Up volunteers met this morning, we all commented on how clean the village was due to the efforts of the students.
So we went back home and got our brooms (and a couple of garden leaf blowers) and hit the sidewalks to remove as much of the remaining sand before the street cleaners sweep through this coming week.
Thank you volunteers – this has become an annual get together for us and I hope that it continues for years to come. Special thanks to Mr Tim Richards, who lives in North Carolina and summers here, who joined the work crew.
