Girl Guides help beautify Sackville
As part of the Girl Guides of Canada’s Spark program, there is a badge called In My Community, which suggests that the girls become familiar with the local landmarks such as the fire and police stations, library and town hall. This involves the girls walking about the neighbourhood and on this particular adventure in early April the Sackville Sparks decided to do a cleanup and were prepared with plastic gloves, garbage bags, warm clothes and lots of smiles and laughter. They cleaned along the route from the Sackville Public Library (where they meet) to the Sackville town hall, which also houses the fire and police departments, and on a couple of streets along the way.
Most of what was collected appeared to be doggie bags the owner had dropped on the ground in numerous places. This was not a very pleasant experience for these young girls who had questions and were looking for answers.
Please help keep our town clean and beautiful by cleaning up after your pets.
