Clayton Road Clean-Up Morning with MVFN

Saturday, April 30, 2016

MVFN’s Environmental Issues Committee is embarking upon a new effort to help make our part of community more ‘natural’ and ‘healthy’ by removing as much trash as possible from roadways.

We have decided to “adopt a road” each year. This year we will clean up on Clayton Road, Mississippi Mills AND we are asking your help to achieve this task! Meet afterwards for donut and coffee to relax and celebrate.

Date: Saturday April 30th from 8:30 to 10:30 am; coffee at Equator Coffee in Almonte afterwards.

Fourteen volunteers plus one or two pick-up trucks would easily complete the task. Please register for this event so I’ll know who is coming. Let me know if you have a pick-up and can help to drive helpers and/or help by collecting litter.

What to wear: long sleeves and trousers, tucked in to protect from deer ticks and wild parsnip.  Gloves are essential.  Also sun screen and insect repellant.

What to bring: a light pail with a handle and a stick with a nail in the end.

Where to meet: Esso station (corner of Highway 29 and Ottawa Street) in Almonte at 7:45 am for car-pooling.

To Register: Contact Cliff Bennett at 613-256 5013 or
