Annual downtown clean-up event held Saturday morning

A small but dedicated group of volunteers set out to clean downtown Salmon Arm on Saturday morning.

Participants in this year’s downtown clean-up event met at the Ross Street Plaza stage around 9 a.m. on April 23 before setting off on a mission to rid the sidewalks and other public-use areas of garbage, while giving signs, benches, lamp posts, the Ross Street Plaza mosaic and other things a scrub and a shine.

Among those taking part in the event were students from Salmon Arm Secondary’s leadership class. Some businesses also used the morning to give storefronts a spring cleaning.
