Letter: Thank you to Polson Avengers

We as a community should be very grateful.

Re: Polson Avengers

To the people who are criticizing the fantastic job Kai Eli and his friends are doing cleaning up Vernon….give your head a shake.

These young people have jobs and lives yet chose to take the time to clean up the horrible messes at our parks and public areas.

We as a community should be very grateful. They were even at Polson Park on Canada Day. I have never seen the park so clean. The ladies and I who had the Canadian Cancer Society tent there really appreciated the needle-free environment.

If you have the energy to criticize….you have the energy to help them out.

Thank you Polson Avengers.
