Adopt-a-Street Wraps Up Another Successful Year

Posted On Friday November 20, 2020

Mary Jolly and Daune MacDonald figure today – Friday, November 20 – will be their last day collecting litter for 2020.

The Adopt-a-Street volunteers have been maintaining some of the City’s main streets (Marleau Ave, Boundary Ave, Campbell St, Education Rd, and Second St) for four years.

They said the amount of litter along the road and in ditches was about the same as in previous years. They’ve used about three boxes of large garbage bags in their efforts.

“We decided at the beginning that we wouldn’t complain about the amount of litter,” said MacDonald. Instead, they appreciate the honks from passing cars, and the occasional coffee offered by appreciative residents.

The Adopt-a-Street program, led by volunteer coordinators Pam and Ray Carson, relies on the efforts of civic-minded residents, who select a trail, park, or street to maintain at least once a month.

“On behalf of City Council, I’d like to thank every volunteer who collected litter and beautified our City again this year,” said Mayor Bernadette Clement. “Your efforts matter, and your community pride is evident!”
