On Saturday, May 6, a large group of the Georgian Bay Coyotes and their families spent several hours doing a community clean up at the track on Aiken Street.
The track clean-up day has become an annual event for the club but this year the clean-up day was done in conjunction with the Meaford Rotary Club Baggie day, when Meaford residents are encouraged to pick up garbage and help beautify the municipality.
The entire track was weeded, edged, and swept, as were the jump pits. The jump pits were tilled and refreshed with a new load of sand and are again ready to be used.
Younger members of the club spent time picking up garbage throughout the athletic field and adjacent portion of the Georgian Trail, and the various start lines as well as the finish line of the track were given a fresh coat of paint.
All of this hard work left the track and field in great shape for the elementary students’ upcoming track and field meets. Many thanks go out to all of those who pitched in to help.
