Spring is (we think!) about to arrive for real, and it’s time to clean up the neighbourhood! The JRA is cooperating with the Clean Up Toronto program, and JRA board member Andrew Zimbel will be staffing our pickup point — the gazebo on Dundas St. W. just west of Clendenan — from 8 am to 2 pm on Sunday. He’ll have bags and plastic gloves for anyone who wants to pitch in. (I usually also bring an old pair of tongs for grasping hard-to-reach objects.) You can choose your own area to clean up and then bring the filled bags back to the gazebo for pickup by City trucks. Of course, you can also use your own bags and just bring the filled ones to the gazebo. Form a little group for more fun, or work alone for maximum efficiency. For questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org. On the day itself, you can reach Andrew at 416-948-2455.
