It was another successful clean up day for the City of Terrace, Sunday, April 17, as hundreds of residents walked the streets and alleyways to fill two large disposal bins with garbage. It is a wonder how this much material was dropped and discarded in the first place.
But the real party happened afterwards at Ferry Island. Dr. Fishy and others entertained the volunteer citizenry clean up crew as they enjoyed the after work barbeque.

Just wanted to say thankyou to all those who helped with Sundays big clean up. There were people everywhere. I didn't participate as I was moving but, I will be there next year. What a great bunch of people this town is made up off. It was really good to see so many kids out. As another writer commented even just a going out and picking up a bit every once in awhile helps. Thanks again for making this such a great place to live.

What a great community effort! I admit I wasn't there, but I have been known to stop and pick up garbage.
I have to wonder what our community would look like if everyone took the time every couple weeks to simply clean up the area around their property. I think it would make a huge difference. And, what a huge difference it would make if people actually secured their loads on the way to the dump.
Thanks To All The Sponsors

A big shout-out to the sponsors who provided extra incentive for all the clean-up volunteers, with Hawkair providing two flights to the lucky draw winners, Save-On foods for providing the salmon and smokies, and prizes from The River Kings, the Ford Dealership and Skeena Wild.
And of course special thanks to Dr. Fishy for volunteering their time to keep all the troops entertained. Nothing could have been better than hearing " Bottom Bouncing" on the very island that the song was written about.
And of course another fond thank you to the approximately 250 people who took the time out of their busy lives to do something for the community.
