**UPDATE** Event date changed to May 6 due to snow still on trails and parks.
The District of Sparwood is challenging local clubs, workplaces, and families to come out on Sunday, May 6, for our fifth annual Sparwood Community Cleanup to help clean up the garbage that has accumulated throughout the winter. Click here to see the event on Facebook.
Our goal is to instill pride in the beauty of our community by demonstrating our leadership in preserving the environment. By picking up garbage and litter we will become more aware of what's being thrown away, what could have been recycled, and gain a better understanding of the consequences littering has on the community. Last year we had almost 80 volunteers participate throughout the week, plus the local schools, and we’re hoping to increase that number this year!
Sparwood’s big community cleanup will be held on Sunday, May 6, from 10am – 1pm. People are encouraged to participate anytime in the week prior to or following the event. All supplies will be provided.
A staging area will be set up in the Chamber of Commerce / Visitor Centre parking lot, located on Aspen Drive across from Greenwood Mall, where volunteers will be supplied with garbage bags, gloves, and high-vis vests.
The first 20 volunteers to register will get a FREE Sparwood water bottle. For more information or to register, please contact Jeremy Johnston, Planning Assistant, at 250.425.6829 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All community groups, businesses and individuals are encouraged to participate and show their civic pride.
