The District of Sicamous and Sicamous Communities in Bloom hosted the annual community cleanup on April 27, 2024 in celebration of Earth Day.

More than 30 community members participated in the community cleanup and the rejuvenation of the flowerbeds at seniors' residences operated by the Sicamous & District Senior Citizens Housing Society. We were so happy to see participation from Girl Guides, the Pickleball Club, Sicamous Bible Church, the District of Sicamous, Communities in Bloom, the Eagle Valley Arts Council and other community-minded residents.

An estimated 1,000 pounds of garbage was collected during the community cleanup. Volunteers worked on several large flower beds at the seniors' residences and have identified some follow-up work to be completed in the next few weeks.

The district and Sicamous Communities in Bloom would like to thank the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 99 for hosting and sponsoring the lunch that followed the cleanup event, as well as Twin Anchors and Bayview Homes for supplying dump trailers.

Thank you to all of the residents who showed up to give back to our planet and our community. Your dedication and kindness is recognized and appreciated by the district and Sicamous Communities in Bloom!
