Duran Park Clean-Up Thank you!

A big thank you to everyone who participated in our clean-up on Saturday. Despite the grey skies, we had a fantastic team of people who not only cleaned the park but also the alleyways in the Durand.  A big thank you as well to the Big Bee on James St. S that kindly donated water and fruit to our hardworking team!

We look forward to many beautiful summer days in the park.
