Cranbrook, BC (April 18, 2018) – The days are getting longer, the snow is melting and the sun is getting stronger. With the return of spring, the City of Cranbrook is asking residents and businesses to join us in our Springtime Spruce Up Cranbrook campaign-- a community clean-up and beautification initiative.
Through the effort of many volunteers, we will work to remove litter and debris from our parks, the creek, neighborhoods, streets, schools and public areas including in and around our many businesses.
Our Springtime Spruce Up campaign is designed to increase participation by encouraging business owners and citizens to take 20-minutes and spruce up the area around their business or home. Twenty minutes can make a big difference! A clean and litter-free community can attract tourism and promote economic activity, as well as encourage a sense of pride amongst citizens.
All of the schools within the City of Cranbrook have been actively involved in cleaning up their school yards each year with loads of garbage bags being collected. Several local clubs, organizations, Chamber members, the Downtown Business Association and many other citizens have been very supportive of this program.
Please help by registering yourself, your business or organization with the City’s Community Services as a participant in this year’s Springtime Spruce Up campaign. Call us at 250-489-0220 today and we will provide you with some bags!
