Family at Clean-upThanks to all who attended and helped with our annual creek clean-up in the south park. Thanks to Larry Willhelm for organizing the event again! It was a great chance to teach children about preserving nature, helping neighbors, and enjoying the local outdoors. You can view photos from the event by clicking on the link in thr right hand column of this page labled “Brookside Photo Gallery”. Missed this year’s clean-up? We can always use volunteers to keep our creek and parks trash-free. Your help throughout the year is appreciated! We will also inform you of our next organized group clean-up in the future.

Failure to comply with Canton ordinances can result in a misdemeanor citation being issued. Defendants are then required to appear in 35th District Court to answer to the violation. Fines and/or court costs can be assessed by the court.

Join Creek Clean-up: Saturday, April 19 April 18, 2008

Every year a group of residents work together to pick up trash and debris found along the creek surrounding our subdivision. This nice gathering in the park is a great oppurtunity to meet fellow neighbors, get fresh air and (hopefully) some sunshine…all while ensuring the place we call home stays looking great!

Did you know the average homeowners association in a subdivision our size will pull 5-10 tons of garbage out of their creeks per year? (Source: google.com)

Bring your garden gloves and your family and help us keep the surrounding land of our subdivision tidy! Efforts like these have an indirect effect on property values and a direct effect on the well-being of those of us who walk or play near the creek.

Join us Saturday April 19, 2008 starting at 9:ooam. We will meet at the South park bridge.

See you then!
