Girl Guides help beau­tify Sackville

Sackville Tribune - - OP-ED -

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.
