With the welcome arrival of spring you cannot help but notice the garbage along the roadsides in many communities, but no so as you enter the Prospect communities. For more than 15 years, Jack Mitchell, a long-time member of both the Prospect Road Lions Club and Citizens On Patrol, has worked collaboratively with Dan Chassie of Halifax C & D Recycling Ltd. to clean the roadsides at the start of the Prospect Road. Halifax C&D has been sponsoring sports teams and Community groups to clean up the ditches from the St Margarets Bay Road to Goodwood. The last couple of years under Jack and Dan’s leadership, many of the other Industrial businesses based in and around Mills Drive in Goodwood have joined in this undertaking, making generous financial donations to the service groups involved. This year Halifax C&D was joined by Mills Heavy Hauling, John Ross and Sons Recycling, Royal Enviromental Group, Coastal Restoration and Masonary LTD, Willcraft Concrete Servces LTD, Wilmac Self Storage as sponsors of this community event. These and other companies in the Goodwood industrial park employ over a thousand people in peak seasons. The stretch of road at the start of our community is pretty much a “no man’s land”, although it is very important as it is also the entrance to arguably Nova Scotia’s biggest tourist attraction, Peggy Cove. Most of the contents of the dozens of bags of garbage picked up from the roadside in this area seemed to come from fast food outlets and must have been tossed from car windows by thoughtless people, who for some unknown reason think it is okay to dispose of waste in this manner. Shame on them! The Prospect Road Lions Club and the Prospect Road Citizens On Patrol are two very important community service organization who work in countless ways to make our community a great place to live, including taking to the ditches annually to pick up litter and other materials that is an eyesore and pollutes the environment. Both the Lions Club and the Citizens On Patrol have dwindling membership and are actively recruiting new volunteers to join them. If you or someone you know would like to serve the community, please consider joining one of these worthy organizations.
