In Our Community

Chipping in to get our parks ready!

On Saturday, April 23, Staff members from all three of our Lambton branches came together for the Annual Spring Community Clean up. The goal of this event is to engage community participation in cleaning up our City parks, trails, boulevards, and public spaces. We had a blast. Our park was Tecumseh park, thanks to the neighbours that surround this park, there was actually very little for us to do. We wanted to give a big shout out to those that help every day to keep our parks clean and welcoming.
