Volunteers clean up downtown

by Brent Eades

About two dozen local residents turned out on a cool and drizzly Saturday morning for this year’s ‘Pitch-In’ day in downtown Almonte.

Armed with shovels, rakes and trash bags, the volunteers cleaned up a winter’s worth of dirt, debris and — regrettably — large amounts of dog waste, especially around the gazebo by the Post Office. This area was obviously  used as a canine lavatory throughout the winter by some dog owner or owners.

Coordinated by the Town’s Tiffany MacLaren and members of the Beautification Committee, the event was judged a thorough success despite the inauspicious weather.

Harold McKay and Councillor Alex Gillis. Harold discovered a discarded lawn sign from his real estate business amongst the trash.
