The Sault Ste. Marie community is invited to participate in the 6th Annual 20-Minute Makeover taking place Wednesday, May 17, 2017.
To take part, registered participants are required to clean up outside their home or business for at least 20 minutes. The intent of the community clean-up is to promote civic pride and city beautification. Last year, over 600 people participated in the city-wide initiative.
Registered participants will receive a clean-up kit containing gloves, garbage bags, and other items – while supplies last.
Registration forms and event information is available online at saultstemarie.ca/makeover. Participants can drop off completed registration forms and get their clean-up kits while supplies last at the Civic Centre lobby, Walmart North (Great Northern Road) courtesy desk, and the Downtown Association.
Prizes, including Stitch Co. tote bags, gift baskets and rain barrels, will be awarded for the best participant photos taken during the event.
Councillor Steve Butland will kick off the event at the Civic Centre at 11 a.m. on May 17.
Specials thanks to event sponsors: Walmart North; OLG; Clean North; and Stitch Co. and media sponsors: CTV; KiSS 100.5 and Country 104.3 for their generous contributions.
