Fernie Secondary School Trash Bash

By Jessica Teeple

It’s amazing what kinds of things we find once the fluffy winter snow has gone away.

Although the snow can be very enjoyable, it’s what is  underneath that counts.

At Fernie Secondary we’ve set up the Trash Bash event where students, teachers and other volunteers from the community help clean up the garbage the snow hid all winter.

This year students got a free block off school to pick up trash around our community.

Despite the overcast, cool and snowy weather, the entire school went out in full force to clean up the town.

We know how long this winter has been, why not make the spring here in Fernie better by keeping it clean?

Everybody enjoys being in a fresh clean community and Trash Bash is a great way to make Fernie the clean place that everyone loves.

Thanks to Tim Hortons, Columbia Basin Trust, Fernie Printing Company, and Kristy and the gang in the FSS kitchen for the support.
