Media Advisory: Saturday in Vanier...10 Parks-100 Residents

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 24, 2008) - The "Together for VANIER Beautification Group" is inviting residents to come out on Saturday (rain or shine) to help clean-up the 10 parks of Vanier. Mrs. Debbie St.Aubin, the clean-up program leader has already enlisted 10 park leaders who on Saturday morning, at the Dupuis Street Pedestrian Mall (near Jean Coutu), will leave with volunteers to a designated park.

The idea says St.Aubin is simple - "We have been given the gloves and bags by the City and we are going to walk along and pick up garbage on our way to the parks. Once we are there, our volunteer-residents will pick up what others have left behind."

Volunteers will get coffee and doughnuts as they arrive at the sign up point and then, a community BBQ provided by the Community Service Centre Vanier, will be served afterwards. Only a few hours of residents time is required.

Date of the event: Saturday, April 26, 2008

Time: 9 AM

Place: Montreal Road at Dupuis Street
(Pedestrian Mall - near Jean Coutu)
