Ste. Anne de Bellevue (SADB) was the scene of the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup held Saturday, July 5.
The route commenced from the tip of SADB reaching the Coop du Grand Orme at the edge of the Highway 20 Bridge.
Fourteen volunteers, young, and old spent two and a half hours picking up close
to 15 pounds of garbage, coupled with an additional two pounds of recyclables, which were then separated into two different coloured bags.
“SADB and the World Wildlife Fund sponsored the event with collaboration from Cunningham’s Pub, Lise-Anne Briand, Massage Therapy, and the Coop du Grand Orme.
“It was my first time coordinating this event as well as the first time that the shoreline cleanup has extended through the main centre of town. The college hosts a regular fall shoreline cleanup each year in the region near the campus,” organizer James Maynard told The Suburban.
“I found picking up trash to clean up the shoreline was a satisfying, humbling, and surprisingly fun way to spend time with good, like-minded people of the community. A good time was had by all,” said Ile Perrot resident, Michelle Bruyère.
“I couldn’t believe how many water bottles we picked up. It is great that we recycled all of them,” said SADB resident, Ryan Young.
