Op­er­a­tion Beau­ti­fi­ca­tion deemed suc­cess

Sackville Tribune - - EXTRAS - SACKVILLE, N.B.

Sackville’s first-ever Op­er­a­tion Beau­ti­fi­ca­tion event was a suc­cess, with more than a dozen lo­cal or­ga­ni­za­tions, school groups and busi­nesses play­ing a part in clean­ing up their com­mu­nity last Wed­nes­day.

“There was a large va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent groups who came out to help,” said Deanna Cad­man, co-or­di­na­tor with the town’s re­cre­ation pro­grams and spe­cial events de­part­ment. “And you can no­tice a big dif­fer­ence look­ing around town now.”

Op­er­a­tion Beau­ti­fi­ca­tion re­places the for­mer Clean Sweep, an event which had be­gun to see par­tic­i­pa­tion dwin­dle over the years. This year, the aim was to in­vite schools, day­cares, busi­nesses and com­mu­nity groups to get in­volved in the ini­tia­tive.

Gloves and garbage bags were avail­able all day at town hall and groups were en­cour­aged to clean up var­i­ous streets and parks.

Cana­dian Wildlife Ser­vice staff and their fam­i­lies were the big­gest contributors to this year’s Op­er­a­tion Beau­ti­fi­ca­tion, with 20 in­di­vid­u­als par­tic­i­pat­ing and col­lect­ing 14 bags of garbage and four bags of re­cy­clables.

“We’re just hop­ing next year we can bring even more peo­ple on board ... and make it even big­ger and better,” said Cad­man.
