UPDATE: On May 28th, we had several people show up and picked areas for cleanup. We want to thank them and looking forward to seeing more people tomorrow! Drop by the Annex Building to pick up your t-shirts and supplies. I will be there from 9 to noon.
The Port de Grave Peninsula Heritage Society is very proud to announce that we have received funding from the Come Home Year Cleanup Project sponsored by the MMSB Board and the Gov’t of Newfoundland and Labrador.
The purpose of this is to clean up the garbage on our roadsides, and public areas. We are also asking residents and businesses to cleanup their private properties.
Every Saturday, starting on May 28th, and ending on June 18th, we will have a scheduled event from 10 am to 12 noon, for those who would like to join us. We will have refreshments, water, juices and snacks available for you, this can be picked up by the Canon Richards Tearoom, or call me and I will drop it off to you.
We will be supplying garbage bags, rubber gloves, safety vest, and hopefully we will have some reacher grabber tools. Next week sometime we will be placing two dumpsters, one by St. Mark’s Heritage Church and one by Ship Cove Pond. You are welcome to use these to put your garbage in. Please note: Under the rules of MMSB propane tanks and rubber tires are not permitted, so please refrain from throwing these items in the dumpsters. The garbage you pick up on the road if you are able please drop it off to a dumpster or leave it on the side of the road and we will make the necessary arrangements to pick it up.
We have a limited number of t-shirts and security vest available, so please contact me and let me know your t-shirt size.
Of course, we will have to report exactly what we did, I will have a form ready for you fill out, I will have this available next week and I will share it with you on Facebook.
Posters are in the mail, I’m also attaching a copy of the poster. We are asking all those who are able both young and old to participate. When you go for a walk grab a garbage bag, a pair of gloves and pick up the garbage on your route.
Why not make this a family event? Gather your family and friends and join in making our community a place we can all be proud off!
Please contact me by email firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text 680-1231 and tell me the area that you will be taking care off. We don’t want everyone going to the one place!
We have a group who has indicated that they will cleanup Short Beach.
Thanking you all in advance and we do need your help, we can’t do alone!
