Chris Hansen, President GTBS
Parkside School students began cleaning up the empty lots between the hospital and overpass at 1:00 on Monday, February 22.

It was scheduled for this Wed 24/10 , but weather worries changed the schedule.

Greater Terrace Beautification Society has issued a invitation for participation in a pre - BC Winter Games clean-up. We will leave the George Little House at 1:00 pm. on Wednesday the 24th and bags are supplied.

The Annual garbathon is scheduled for April 18th between 12:00 - 4:00, starting at McDonalds. They reward participants with a treat coupon.


Editor Addition: We published an article in June 2007 on building a very productive and useful 'Garbage Stick'. Read it again HERE.

Also, at Terrace City Council on Monday evening the Councillors acknowledged the great efforts of these students.
Jacob, Kaitlin and James from Parkside School were part of the lead team in helping to clean up Terrace for the guests arriving in just one week

Please stop LITTERING!
Everyone (you know who you are)...go outside right now and pick up any trash around your home. Plastic bags hanging in trees are not attractive, chip bags, smoke packs, tim's cups etc., do not belong clustered along fences and piled up on the road. Remove the unwanted junk from your yard.
Thanks to the students of Parkside for showing us how it's done!
Thank you Parkside students!

The students at parkside certainly did a clean sweep at the overpass, a Thank-you to Andy Ruygrok and Parkside School for Community Pride. Maybe others can get out there and do the same - Many Thanks
