|Sheila hard at work on the walkway!|
|Some of the 'big' debris.|
A nice assortment of people came to help: some members of Brandon's Lions Club, some neighbours of the park (Hi, Kay!), some Garden Club members and just some other great people! Met Sheila, who came to volunteer at Riverbank because she'd been unable to help with sandbagging during the flood. Good on you, Sheila! We were picking up debris largely. I was surprised at some of the large logs deposited, as well as some hefty 4x4's that may have been part of someones dock or something! We were raking up piles of small stuff: spruce needles, small twigs, straw and reeds were everywhere. There's also a fine layer of mud over much of the walkways and stairways that is really hard to sweep up!
|A great group!|
If you'd like to help with more clean-up, Rachelle at Riverbank Discovery Centre says sometime after the July1st weekend there will be another 'party'. Email her at email@example.com to register!
