Spring Clean Up 2014

Yellowknife Climbing Club headed out for their 2014 Spring Clean Up along Old Airport Road. In total, YKCC had about 20 volunteers helping clean up the garbage.

Afterward, we celebrated at Boston Pizza.

Interesting items found: $60 in cash; a sexual enhancement device; key chain LED light.
