It’s time to clean out the closets, storage, and garage again! It’s time for the Annual McCauley Community Clean Up!
According to clean up veteran volunteer Dan G., the current version of the big bin McCauley Clean Up event started over 15 years ago (around 2002) when the McCauley Apartments’ parking lot served as the center of the event. However, a couple of years before that, Rosalie Gelderman (from the MCL Board) walked around with other caring neighbours and picked up garbage because they wanted to improve their neighbourhood. With the efforts of many great community folks, over the years the McCauley Community Clean Up has grown to be what it is today!
This year, as with many years in the past, McCauley has made it possible to have certain types of trash picked up for FREE and disposed of properly by friendly volunteers. It’s a wonderful opportunity to work together and do something to make our community safe and beautiful. It’s important that we make our community better for everyone! It is definitely a big undertaking, so consider a few things:
It’s a lot of stuff, but as a part of the McCauley community, we each can play a part in the success of the event. This year, we will attempt to make it the best year ever, with the support of the McCauley Community League (funding and support), Edmonton Host Lions (hospitality and food), E4C (infrastructure logistics), and most importantly, MCCAULEY VOLUNTEERS!!! . . . which could, and hopefully will, include YOU! Keep in mind the rewards of volunteering in the community are great and how it impacts the goodness of our relationships with each other. All the terrific neighbours and businesses we have are immeasurable. Volunteers are needed for: Greeters, Labourers, Traffic Management, Driving (Truck), Litter Pickers, Helpers, Postering, and Flyering – Call: (780) 424-2870
Due to the capactiy of the clean up, spots are limited, so reserve your pick-up early! Pick-ups will be on Saturday, June 10 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Call to reserve an appointment: (780) 424-2870 (leave a message). You can also drive through and get rid of trash at our disposal bin site (McCauley Apartments 9541 108A Avenue in the back alley north entrance).
We look forward to hearing from you, and to seeing you June 10!
