Community clean up successful

Article content

You may have spotted some members of the community wearing goldenrod coloured t-shirts and carrying garbages bags and sticks on Saturday.

They were part of the annual Community Clean-up hosted by the Cochrane Lions Club.

About 30 people answered the call to help to pick up debris around the community: members of the Lions Club, students, MNRF fire personnel and interested townspeople.

Manon Boucher said that this was the first time she came out to help with the clean up and was very happy to have gotten involved.

“It is a feel good kind of activity,” she said.

Another volunteer who was on hand for the event said that, unfortunately, the worst part of the clean up was the multiple face masks that were strewn throughout the town.

Organizers said that there was quite a bit less garbage collected this year but, they feel that because of the delay of the event, town employees may have already done a sweep of the community.

Findlay Barr of the Lions Club said he was very happy with the turn out.
