The robins are singing, the hares are changing colour and the weather is gradually improving. That all means we are ready to start thinking about cleaning up what the melting snow has left behind in the park spaces and back lanes, and spring cleaning our homes, yards and garages!
The Northern Hills Community Association and Northstar (Panorama) Residents’ Association are partnering again for our ANNUAL COMMUNITY CLEAN UP!
Volunteers go out to all the Northern Hills communities and help to clean them up by picking up litter in our green spaces, medians and back lanes. Residents can also bring in their unwanted items from their spring clear out to one central location for disposal, recycling or reuse! (See below)
WHEN: 9 AM – 2 PM on Saturday, May 27, 2017
WHERE: Panorama Hills e-Community Centre (88 Panamount Hill NW)
