A Fresh Face

I was invited to help out at the Danforth Mosaic BIA Spring Cleanup on Saturday and I'm so glad that I said yes. The event was such a success and it was so great to see our community out on the streets, cleaning up our neighbourhood. This wasn't the only cleanup - all along the strip, from Broadview to Danforth Village, people were out picking up trash, painting and cleaning up graffiti. What a sight for sore eyes!

I also had the chance to meet Jennifer Wood, a candidate in the running for Ward 29 councillor (taking over from Case Ootes). She had a team of young constituents tagging along with brooms as they "party hopped" along Danforth from one cleanup to the next. I hope this means that she's committed to a clean and walkable community on this end of the Ward....

The event at Coxwell parkette ended with free hotdogs and juice - cooked up by our boys in blue who were also out helping clean-up the hood. All in all, I'd say there were probably about 30 bags of garbage collected from one or two blocks east and west of Coxwell. A small step towards giving the 'hood a fresh face for spring!
