If it looks a little extra sparkly today in Uptown Saint John, it is thanks to the hard work of yesterday's Uptown Clean Sweep teams.? There were 11 teams, with over 55 volunteers from businesses around the Uptown, that took to the streets with equipment from the City of Saint John's Green Machine (and a whole lot of elbow grease) to give the Uptown core a good old-fashioned spring cleaning.
Our enthusiastic volunteers spent the early morning hours hard at work (with coffee help from Java Moose!) before returning to Loyalist Plaza with over 20 bags of trash.? After some hand sanitizer, our helpers had some tasty treats from?Urban Deli before making their way back to work with some coupons and prizes! ??
Twitter was abuzz with pride during and following the event, let's keep this momentum going by continuing to work together, keeping our Uptown clean to the core!??#uptowncleansweep
