Take part in the business challenge!

Big or small, local businesses are all being invited to come forward and help to clean up the community in early April. The commercial and professional communities throughout Brockville are invited to step forward and take the business challenge. This fun event is set for Friday, April 8 from noon to 1 p.m; the same time as the Mayor’s Mini Makeover event. Businesses throughout town are being challenged to choose a certain part of town to clean up during their lunch hours or at some point during the day on April 8. The business which is deemed to have done the best job will receive a prize of free coffee and donuts each Friday for a month from the Community-Wide Clean-Up committee.

The business challenge is among the first events of Community-Wide Clean-Up. The week of April 25th has been unofficially declared community clean up week, with Community-Wide Clean-Up Day set for Saturday, April 30th from 9 a.m. to noon.

Several sponsors, including Tim Hortons, RE/MAX Hometown Realty, Henderson Printing, The City of Brockville, Rotary Club of the 1000 Islands, Grounds Master Nutrite and EEC are all sponsoring the Community-Wide Clean-Up for another year. Additional sponsors are always welcome; just contact the clean-up committee.

All businesses will be supplied with garbage bags and gloves; these items can be dropped off at places of business. Everyone who lives or works in the Brockville area is invited to start thinking now about how to get involved in this year`s event.
