Sometimes making a difference means pitching in and picking up some trash.
As Greater Vancouver’s proudly independent brokerage, we consider it our pleasure to do our part for our beautiful city. And we’re happy to put a sunny Saturday where our mouth is!
On May 11th a group of thirty Dexter agents and friends—along with two good samaritans, who saw our posts and came to join the cause—took to the shores of Spanish Banks. We were armed goodwill, and an insatiable desire to clean up one of Vancouver’s most beautiful public beaches. Happily, the City of Vancouver had also supplied us with the tongs for garbage pick up, garbage bags and sheets to record what we’d collected. Stand-out items from the day include a dog crate and kitchen countertop (though, curiously, not the sink).
By the end of the day we’d collected twenty-two bags of garbage!
We had a lot of people thanking us for our efforts, and we couldn’t be happier to have improved their space and their day at the beach. Along with thanking everyone who helped out, we would particularly like to thank Brooke Alexander for coming up with the idea for this event and Nick Moroso and Brooke for their organizational efforts.
We will be looking to do this again soon—just at a different location. So stay tuned for the next Dexter Shore Clean Up!
