Earth Day is on April 22, and to celebrate, volunteers from the Green Party have organized a park clean-up event in Casselman. Garbage bags will be provided, but volunteers should bring their own gloves. The event will start at 4 p.m. at High Falls Park Conservation Area.
Thaila Riden, the Green Party candidate for Glengarry-Prescott-Russell, will be joining the clean-up effort. After the cleanup, Riden and his band 50 PROOF will be putting on a free acoustic show at 1844 Bistro Eatery & Pub, starting at 6 p.m.
“This is a great opportunity to make community connections through respect and care for our parks and ecosystems, and it’s a perfect way to get to know one of the riding’s candidates before voting day,” said Stephanie Marcil, a Green Party member and environmental activist. “You don’t have to be a Green Party supporter to help take care of our community or get to know those dedicated to representing it.”
