This coming Tuesday, June 30th, YHMA will be heading out to clean up litter along the Alaska Highway as part of our fundraising activities. We're looking for volunteers to come out and join us for some fresh air, exercise, and socializing (from a minimum of 2 metres away!) while making a positive impact.
We will be meeting at 6:00 pm by McCrae gas station. If you can only come for a short time, that's okay - all volunteers are welcome.
