Hi Everyone,

Spring is on its way, I hear, and CASS will be hosting another Clean-up Day at Airways Park, a few blocks South West of the office. On Wednesday May 23, we will be getting our bags, gloves, and some refreshments together, and meeting in the parking lot at 27 Ave & 16 St NE to go through and help clean up a park that we use throughout the year. We will use supplies provided by “The Litter Kit” (TLC), http://www.calgary.ca/CSPS/Parks/Pages/Volunteer/tlckits.aspx . Come down, bring some friends, and have a great time. Please make sure you are wearing closed-toed shoes, have adequate gear for the weather, and read the “Tips for a successful day” provided in the link above.
