Now that the snow has receded a bit, have you noticed that our neighbourhood isn’t looking quite as clean and tidy as it could? GeNA is excited to be planning a community spring cleanup event in the coming weeks. This will complement the efforts of our young friends at Glenelm School, who help with litter pick-up around this time every year.
Stay tuned for more details and how you can get involved!
