Bloordale Fall Cleanup a Success

After our successful spring cleanup, I thought that it would be nice to get the grounds ready for winter with a fall cleanup. Apparently we were just in time, as we were hit with below freezing temperatures and snow just a day after the cleanup!  A big thank you to all of the neighbours, friends and local representatives who came out on November 15 to help us clean and prepare for winter.  We picked up garbage from the parkette, surrounding streets and alleyways. We raked, collected leaves and mulched the tree beds.  Most importantly, we came together as a community!

Armed with hot beverages and fresh cookies, we were ready to work! Much effort went into picking up garbage and raking leaves in the parkette.

BCIA members Judy and Dan helped prepare the new trees for winter by clearing the garbage from the base and adding some fresh mulch.
