As an effort towards contributing back to the society, Guruvayurappan temple of Brampton has adopted a six kilometer section of the Stephen Llewellyn Trail as part of City of Brampton’s “Adopt-A-Park Program”. The adopted trail runs from Sandalwood & Airport all the way to Sandalwood and Cobblestone Drive.
The greenery and scenic beauty of parks and trails contributes to the quality of our life by providing us a link to nature in a typical overwhelming, urban setting. Our Temple has committed to Brampton City to coordinate and cleanup the adopted trail. We are into our seventh successful year now and by participating in the Adopt-a-Park Program, volunteers donate time to help, maintain, beautify, enhance and keep the park safe for all to enjoy. Every year GTOB volunteers clean up three or four times with more than 22 clean-ups so far! The display board also has been updated to reflect Canada 150.
If you’re interested in joining us, please contact the Temple. Additionally, students can bank these hours as volunteer hours for the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD). Please mark this date on your calendar and join us – “rain or shine” – for the Stephen Llewellyn Trail 2015 Fall Cleanup.
