Another great Community Clean-up (and some wacky finds)

Thanks to the more than 25 volunteers of all ages who joined us on Sunday for our 5th annual Community Clean-up!  The Geary strip looks so much better after the piles and piles of garbage and recycling that we pulled out. Meeting neighbours and sharing ideas for the area was a big bonus.

Special thanks go to Jake Tobin Garrett of Park People for a great update on the Friends of the Green Line work, and for treating us all to a hot cocoa wrap-up at Nova Era.  Big thanks go to our fabulous team captains Catherine, Helena, Karen and Suvi, and also to Valentine at Riders Cycle & Board for playing dispatch, relaying latecomers to our teams in the field.

And winners for wackiest found item?  Probably the professionally-stuffed Canada goose — someone spotted the glass eyes and thread — or maybe the deer antler. Queen-size mattress and vacuum cleaner came close too:
