On Saturday, April 11, I joined the Calgary Association of Skateboard Enthusiasts as well as community members and skaters at large for the annual cleanup of Millennium Park. It was a little easier than the same event last year: months of warm weather had cleared up all of the snow, and wind had pushed much of the garbage out of the park to be picked up by City cleaners. Still, we had enough brooms, donuts, hot chocolate and coffee to go around, and it was a great chance to have fun doing something productive, and to connect with the community.
No matter how mild the winter, spring always means cleaning in Calgary. So if you have a similar event happening in your neck of the woods, don't hestitate to get in touch with my office.
