JOIN US THIS SATURDAY AT 10:00 AM!

At 10:00 am on Saturday, October 11, Tom and I are going to clean up the vacant lot at 525 Abbott Street right next to our building in Tinseltown.

The meet-up is at the Starbucks in Tinseltown Mall at 9:45am. The lot currently houses a vacant building owned by the city and is scheduled to be developed at the beginning of the next year. In the meantime, it is used as an injection site by hard drug users and littered with garbage.

It is long past time for us to wait for government to magically solve the city’s problems alone. We have to pitch in and do our part, and start cleaning this city up one lot at a time – storefront by storefront, block by block, neighbourhood by neighbhourhood.

The City of Vancouver is providing gloves, garbage bags and tongs to pick up the garbage through their “Keep Vancouver Spectacular” program.

The next outing for Bickerton’s Bucket Brigade will be at 10:00 am on Saturday, October 18, starting on the southwest corner of Davie Street and Thurlough. The meet-up for Oct 18 is at 9:45am at the Starbucks on the Northwest corner of Davie and Thurlough.

Please join us! Take the city’s future into your own hands and start making a difference. Call me at 778-668-1764 or email me at sean@seanbickerton.com to sign up!
