"Painting the Town Green" in celebration of Centennial's 50th!

Illustration in celebration of Centennial College's 50th Anniversary!
This Tuesday, September 27th Centennial College marked its 50th anniversary by cancelling classes so that faculty, staff and students could "Paint the Town Green"
Thousands of volunteers fanned out across the city to lend a hand in 11 major Toronto parks with a variety of "green" initiatives such as planting trees, spreading mulch, removing trash from waterways and nature trails, painting fixtures and beautifying public areas.
I had the pleasure of heading to the Toronto Island to help with garbage removal at Ward's Island, near the Eastern Channel. Our team did a great job finding a lot of cans and plastic bottles for recycling, tucked away in the bushes. We lucked out with clear blue skies all day, a perfect day for wandering the island. 

It was so nice seeing everyone in their green shirts, coming together for this initiative. A big congrats to Centennial for the success of this event.

Happy 50th Anniversary Centennial!
