Workers cleaned up baseball park

Congratulations to the people of the Parks and Recreation department of the District of Summerland.

Dear Editor:

I am a resident of the Summokan Mobile Home Park, situated directly across Snow Avenue from the Living Memorial Baseball Park.

Last weekend, during Action Festival, they held the annual Slo-Pitch Tournament in all ball fields in Summerland. It sounded like all were having a great time.

On Sunday, I took a walk through the park as the tournament was winding up. What a mess!

There were lawn chairs, shoes, garbage and many, many water and beer bottles and cans left wherever they could be dropped.

Maybe some of the participants thought they were still at home.

On Monday morning at 6:30 a.m. I walked through the park again.

It was like someone had gone through it with a magic broom.

The park was sparking. No more lawn chairs, shoes or garbage.

I did find two empty water bottles. All garbage containers were emptied and new bags had been put in them.

Congratulations to the people of the Parks and Recreation department of the District of Summerland. They must have worked most of the night.

You did an awesome job.

Thank you for a wonderful Action Festival weekend and a marvellous Parks and Recreation department.

Gladys Schmidt
