Shoreline Cleanup events were held in Beaver Mines Lake and Pincher Creek on Wednesday, September 23 and Thursday September 24 respectively. Organized by Wendy Ryan in Pincher Creek, grade 10 student Brook Balazs joined the crew that consisted of, well, the two of them. Undeterred by the small turnout, the pair headed off armed with gloves, bags, picker equipment, a sense of humour, and a dedication to improving our community. In just a few hundred metres the two had already filled several small bags with garbage consisting of discarded clothing, cigarette butts, bottles, plastic, styrofoam, and had already marked several items too large for them to safely tackle, to be removed from the creek by Town crews at a later date. Ryan ended up hauling away approximately 40 pounds of trash at the end of the evening.
