aNNUAL RAVINE CLEAN-UP

The event is usually held on a city- designated Saturday in April. This is a great opportunity to help keep our community sparkling and meet your neighbours!

We typically meet at the east end of the Glenview School playground from 10am to noon with an ample supply of gloves and bags! Volunteer hours are available for high school students as well.
