Maple Ridge Lions will barbecue for cleanup at downtown park

Reg Franklin Park again a target for work by ARMS, volunteers needed

The Maple Ridge Lions Club are bringing their barbecue to Reg Franlin Park this Wednesday, Nov. 9, to support the Maple Ridge Adopt-a-Block program during a public cleanup event.

Everyone who participates will be served a hot dog and a cup of hot chocolate in the park, which is located in downtown Maple Ridge at 22522 123 Avenue, next to Eric Langton Elementary.

This will be the last event in Reg Franklin Park for 2022, as the Alouette River Management Society wraps up the first year of the Morse Creek Restoration Project. This year’s project was made possible by the financial support of the Stewart Family Foundation and the Pacific Salmon Foundation.

The event will run from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. All equipment will be supplied, and all ages are welcome.
