20 Minute Makeover & Waterford River Clean Up Blitz!

Waterford River Clean Up Blitz
The City is holding a Clean-Up Blitz along the Waterford River on Saturday, May 27th from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. and is looking for volunteers, including businesses, residents, and community groups, to help pick up litter and small debris along the river banks.

Participants will meet at City Hall at 10 a.m. to sign up and receive supplies.  Afterwards, volunteers are invited to Centennial Park, located on Centennial Street, for Tim Hortons treats, pizzas, a bouncy castle, face painting and more! The appreciation party begins at noon and is sponsored by Tim Hortons.
