Highway Clean-up

Our semi annual Highway Cleanup program had a successful session on Saturday Morning October 16, when 10 Optimists (5 from Edmonton Dinner and 5 from Leduc) showed up at 9A when the temperature had dropped to -1c.

As usual they proceeded to our area which is the East ditch of the QEII starting at the Kavanaugh overpass on-ramp and ends 3km North just South of the Weigh Scale. Half started on the South End while the other half started at the North end and they met an hour and a half later and left 15 bags of garbage for the Highways personnel to pick up during the week.

The group then adjourned to Boston Pizza in Leduc for an enjoyable lunch. Many thanks for a successful day go out to Edmonton Dinner Members, John Anderson, Mike Trudeau, Keivin Wallace, Denise Stamp and Doreen Batterham, Leduc members, Shayne Beveridge, Chantell Mihaicheon, Ray and Connie Venturin and Bob Scott.

Our next session out on the highway will be early in June of 2011
