I like that our community gets involved.
My son's grade one class will be going 'on an adventure' with a high school class to plant trees today.
Our small office--including the lawyer--goes every year for a couple hours to the town hall to get garbage bags, recycle bags and gloves and then we go clean up around the Ganny (The Ganaraska River) that runs through downtown. It's such a pretty place to work there with old building and architecture and so it irks me more that people litter there. And just for a fun note, the town runs a race down the river every year to commemorate a flood that happened in 1980--the raced is called Float Your Fanny Down the Ganny. Yep, it's hilarious because along with kayaks and canoes, there is a race for those who create their own water crafts. They dress up in costumes or goofy things and try to float on anything from cardboard to tires to old doors even LOL.
Oh, and if you want to see just how pretty the downtown where I work (which is so quaint and old fashion) is, just watch Happy Town on ABC coming at the end of the month. This new thriller/drama series was shot up here for the town scenes and the clips look sooooo cool! I even was stopped coming out of the parking lot because they were doing a scene in the park and on the street in front of the town hall. I was sooooo neat!! I'm gonna have to write a story about that someday LOL.
Oops, okay, focusing again, Earth Day. Everyone should do something to help!
