Successful Clean Up Day
Building A Community
A Community Thats Building Relationships
May 14th in partnership with members of the Uxbridge Parks and Recreation Department the Save the South Balsam Street Play Park Group cleaned up the South Balsam Street Park.
While dropping off some drinking water for the thirsty volunteers I noticed that the fence repairs were already underway. Despite the drizzle there were numerous volunteers working away with many bags of refuse and piles of tree branches all ready for pick up.
As a local REALTOR® it does my heart good to see a community take ownership of issues in their neighbourhood and work together to the benefit of the community.
Sarah Pratt and all those who worked with her to save the park, from being decommissioned, and made a commitment to the town to do a spring clean up every year are to be commended.
From the young 10 year old girl who on her own initiative went door to door to gather signatures on a petition to those who wrote to council and those who were able to attend the council meeting dealing with the park congratulations.
To all those who stepped up to the plate to help with the cleanup a super congratulations on the effort and a job well done.
Councilor Jacob Mantle, wearing the dark shirt in the background, brought some heavy equipment to the party.
