Subject: Spring Cleaning in the Capital - April 17th - 10 am at UltraMar YRE in Convent Glenn Orleans

Greetings Walkers.

Yes, at last it is Spring and the weather is starting to look like it. Spring means it time to “Spring Clean” our adopted road.

A reminder for members and to update NEW members, the Ottawa Voyageurs Walking Club decide to give back to our community by adopting a road in Orleans. Part of the commitment of adoption is to “clean” the grass / green areas along the road way.

Our adopted road way runs from the overpass intersection of Hwy 174 and Jeanne d’Arc Blvd north through Convent Glen North to the corner of Jeanne d’Arc Blvd and Orleans Blvd were the UltraMar gas station. This is the gas station that hosts the Convent Glen North YRE.

Date: April 17, 2011
Time: 10 am
Location: - UltraMar Gas Station in Convent Glen Mall at the North intersection of Jeanne d`Arc Blvd and Orleans Blvd.
What to bring: - work gloves, bottle of water and your enthusiasm
– some people brought a pail to put the litter in before dumping it into the garbage bags provided
- some people brought a long handled dustpan and broom to sweep up glass and cigarette butts
What is provided: Garbage bags, disposable rubber gloves – I ordered 10 pick-up stick on loan from the City of Ottawa.
Lunch: A group lunch is planned for Gabrielle`s 2158 St. Joseph Blvd, Orleans at 12 noon

This is also the date for the group walk of the UltraMar YRE there maybe a group of walkers doing the 10 km.

Those who help with the clean up will get an IVV event stamp in their IVV event book.

PLEASE CONFIRM YOU ARE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE spring clean up by a return email to me at Kathy Luten
