Carleton Place is a beautiful community to live in, but as with any area, spring brings about some winter leftovers. The streets have piles of salt and sand, dried or sopping wet leaves that weren’t cleaned up in fall now make their home against curbs and near grates, and branches and general litter can be seen just about everywhere. That’s why the Carleton Place BIA (Business Improvement Association) is holding “OPERATION CLEAN SWEEP” the week of April 20 – 26. If you have a community group, or if your school or business would like to pitch in and help dust off our town for Spring, please contact Cathy McOrmond at the Carleton Place BIA to register and get a clean up package. They can’t do this alone, so get out and enjoy some fresh air, while helping to make our community sparkle!
