Great weather greeted more than 700 Miltonians for their volunteer duties on Milton Good Neighbours Community Day on Saturday May 5. Attendees included singular do-gooders who created clean-up teams, as well as representation from various community groups. The Milton Fire Department and RCMP were on hand both as volunteers and for additional event support and safety.
The Town Hall was full of life despite the early morning hour and The Rotary Club of Milton kept the bbq sizzling with delicious sandwiches. Celebrating its 26th year, the Milton Good Neighbours Community Day encourages volunteers to assist the community by cleaning up parkland and roadsides, and providing support for those who are unable by washing windows, digging gardens, planting flowers and raking leaves.
Before volunteers dispersed for the day’s cleanup, the crowd heard speeches from Committee member Alex Wellstead, and Mayor Gord Krantz, who asked Rotarian Len Lee.
