Southfork Cleanup

2nd Annual Southfork Neighbourhood Cleanup draws more than 30 volunteers

Southfork hosts a volunteer clean up day

The 2nd annual Southfork Neighbourhood Cleanup was held on Saturday May 2nd. The day threw rain, snow, sun and wind at the more than 30 volunteers that showed up to pick up trash in the neighbourhood but the crew “weathered” the weather and completed the cleanup. The area around the pond now sparkles and it was surprising how much trash had accumulated over the winter.

Thanks was given to the City of Leduc for supplying the trash collection supplies and for picking up the filled garbage bags, to Tamani Communities for supplying snacks, juice and water and, Johnny’s Landscaping for providing something for those who participated.

The community would like to thank Melanie Nesimiuk for all the work she did in organizing the cleanup. Melanie thanked all the volunteers and commented “we live in a great community with wonderful neighbours!”
