Great Turnout for the 1st River Clean Up of 2013

We had a great turn out this past Saturday for the 1st Chilliwack Vedder River Clean Up Society of 2013.

Record attendance AND record garbage collection!
CVRCS Directors, Nikki and Dave with some awesome volunteers.  The young adults are from the Eco-Maniacs club at Sardis Secondary

We had over 225 people registered and this also included some folks worth mentioning, Ms. Toth and her group of Eco-Maniacs from Sardis Secondary, Chilliwack Mayor, Sharon Gaetz and local politicians Gwen O'Mahoney representing the NDP and Laurie Throness representing the Liberals.

Our next river clean up is on Saturday July 20th at the Great Blue Heron Reserve.

Here are a few photos from the morning.

Future generations caring about our environment!

p.s. a very special thanks to my friend Janyne who comes out and volunteers her time with the Board of Directors all the way from Vancouver!!!  (we had a photo of her too but she would have killed me had I posted it)
