It was the perfect day for a very enthusiastic group of volunteer parents and staff to tackle a clean-up on one of our favourite play spaces, Ceclia Cove Park...better known as the 'Checkerboard".  Ably led by parent Jennifer Jakobsen, the team spent three hours pruning, sweeping, digging, raking and  slashing.  A great team effort!
