Pitch In Day

October 21, 2018

To Register Call 613-623-7301 or E-mail givory@arnprior.ca to register!

What is PITCH-IN Day all about?

PITCH-IN Day is all about the members of the community coming together to beautify public areas within the Town.  Public areas in Town become littered with garbage and other items making these spaces less enjoyable for the community to spend time in.

This Fall the focus will be on Bell Park, Hydro Park and McLean Park but if residents prefer to focus their efforts on a park in their neighbourhood or their favourite park we are grateful for their support. Please confirm the park you wish to pitch-in at when you register. For a full list of parks and their locations, click here.

**Please be mindful of poison ivy at Bell Park. We encourage any volunteers at Bell Park to wear long sleeves, gloves, closed toe shoes

What do participants do?

Participants pick-up litter from public areas within the Town.

Where do I register?

To register yourself or a group of people for the clean-up, please visit or call the Nick Smith Centre at 613-623-7301 or send an e-mail to givory@arnprior.ca .Participants wishing to clean-up a certain public area in Town are asked to provide their PITCH-IN Day location at the time of registering.

Should I or my group bring garbage bags?
