The weather was rainy and cool but a good-sized crowd of Blue River residents turned to take part in a Town Cleanup Day held Sunday, April 24.
“We had a lot of youngsters out helping with the cleanup, which was so wonderful to see,” said Kasey Quinn, one of those involved. “Thank you the town of Blue River for keeping out town clean. You rock!”
The day coincided with a free dump day at the Blue River transfer station. Thompson-Nicola Regional District provided kits plus Hanna’s Services supplied a mobile bin.
Several people took out bags on their walks and were picking up garbage on a daily basis for several weeks before.
Volunteers at the community hall also had a concession for those taking part.
