November 27, 2014: Dedicated Park Cleanup;
Clare Gardens teen remembered with flowers.

By Gary Ludington.

Friends of Clare Gardens Park Friends and neighbours came out on Saturday, October 25th to do our annual Fall cleanup of Clare Gardens Park. Litter is picked up, leaves raked into piles, and fallen branches are cleared away as bags of refuse are lined up and hauled off for yard waste collection, and the park is readied for winter.

This year we, the Friends of Clare Gardens Park, also planted some 300 bulbs to celebrate the life of a young neighbour, Molly Robillard, who recently passed away from cancer.

Next spring there will be an abundance of purple flowers (Molly’s favourite colour) at the three entrances to the park as a joyful reminder of a cheerful youngster and popular friend who also once blossomed in Clare Gardens Park. Balloons in purple and white, along with guitar-accompanied song were used in marking the passing of Molly Robillard. Purple blooms in the coming spring will help recall her memory.
