Combined Forces

The fates smiled on us today for two reasons. Firstly, there was only a sprinkling of snow which didn't hamper our efforts or dampen our spirits and secondly, we happened to have our cleanup coincide with the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup (GCSC). Many of the volunteers shown above are from RICOH and were taking part in the GCSC. The result was lots of people attacking the same site. NICE!!!

Good thing they all showed up too, because there was a lot of garbage to get.  A bicycle, an old motor, pieces of a desk chair, plastic pails and litter... lots and LOTS of litter.

Not sure if this is the last cleanup of the year - that depends on Old Man Winter's arrival, but whatever happens, great work today and all season long!  Thanks to all the excellent, strong and interested volunteers!
