The morning of April 14 was cold, snowy and wet. That didn’t stop the 100 or so volunteers who came out to help at Elkford’s first Annual Community Clean Up.
After several years of a few individuals getting together to clean up the garbage on the sides of the highway that would show as the winter snow melted, it was discussed to try to organize a larger clean up and encourage more people to come out.
Tracey Halladay, Steve Woods and Steve Murphy did just that.
Expecting maybe a couple of dozen people would show up, especially with the fresh snow overnight, they were immensely surprised and happy to see so many children, teens and adults come out to help.
To all of you who came out, thank you so much and we look forward to seeing you and hopefully more next year.
Very big thanks to the businesses and organizations for their support of Elkford’s Annual Community Clean Up.
The organizers of Elkford’s Annual Community Clean Up would like to issue a challenge to the other communities of the Elk Valley.
Let’s make our valley one of the cleanest in B.C.!
