I LIKE THAT a happy cluster of service providers gathered at Spirit Park in Campbell River on Sunday, June 3, 2012 at 8:00 a.m. My dear friends Pat J and Nancy C contributed happily and wholeheartedly to the weed picking task and the sweeping duties.
Jan T, a local businesswoman, service provider extraordinaire and member of Business Improvement Association, invited friends and family to join her on a four-block clean-up of Campbell River’s downtown core. Some started with a free coffee offered up by Nesbitt’s Island Coffee on Shopper’s Row, and Shot in the Dark Café on North Island Highway. The scrumptious muffins were supplied by On Line Gourmet. We split up into work groups, pulled weeds and removed the trash from the sidewalks and boulevards.
The upbeat mood that sprung from the volunteers was uplifting and humbling. Having a clean city is important to everyone on the team and you can thank the volunteer groundskeeper helpers as well as the City workers for that.
