*Apr.21 – Millennium Trail, Consecon Portion TRASH BASH Event, 9:00am


April 21, 2018

Hi folks,

I, Bill McMahon, have been invited to lead the Millennium Trail, Consecon Portion group, as part of the QUINTE TRASH BASH! Saturday April 21st. from 9:30am until 12:30 pm.  Assembly at the County Depot, at the corner of Salem Road & Hwy 33 at 9:00 am.

Following the successful community fundraising campaign, the County is upgrading the surface of much of the Millennium Trail this spring. Soon it will be a smooth ride for all users, and walkable and wheelchair-friendly! Picton to Wellington to Consecon and on and on!

After a long winter, I encourage our Consecon & Area residents to get outside and and celebrate our linear park, participate in cleaning up, and give the Millennium Trail a clean, fresh start to the season. A little bit goes a long way and we appreciate the efforts of everyone who participates.

The Annual Quinte Trash Bash is a great project and promotes a cleaner environment, and is a great opportunity for our community to work together to help keep our The County beautiful. We need people who will join in the fun, I hope that everyone who can will come and join us in this very important event.No need to bring anything other than an eagerness to pitch in, we will provide the supplies, (Kits contain Nitrile gloves, garbage bags & clear bags for recyclables)

Anyone knowing of any High School Students who need Volunteer Hours, Participating in Quinte Trash Bash counts! Students can register in Prince Edward County, and log their time for volunteer hours. Join us to collect litter on the day of the event and contact Bill McMahon at billmcmahon31@icloud.com to arrange signing any necessary paperwork.

If you need further information get back to me either by return email or at (613) 394-9914.

Let’s get the Trail cleaned up.
