Town-wide cleanup this Sunday

The town of Moosomin is planning a town-wide cleanup for this Sunday, June 4, and volunteers are needed!

Tim Hortons organized a town-wide cleanup each spring for several years but saw a drop off in the number of volunteers last year.

Councillor Murray Gray, who is in charge of beautification efforts for the town, decided the town would take on organizing the cleanup.

Gray said he has moved the cleanup to a weekend in hopes of attracting more volunteers and said it would be nice to see at least 40-50 volunteers come out.

“We need as many pickup trucks as we can and Tim Hortons will still provide the garbage bags,” he said.

“There’s lots going on this summer. There are a lot of people coming to town and we really want to have a positive experience for them, and the last thing we want is garbage around town.”
Gray said anyone wanting to participate in the cleanup could call or text him at 306-435-9062 or email him at murraygray@sasktel.net to let him know they are coming, or could show up the day of the cleanup.

Both volunteers and vehicles are needed. Volunteers will meet at the town office at 1 pm that day and the town will be divided into sections, with each group of volunteers being given one section to clean.
