OK Tire helps clean out garages with tire roundup

Don’t know if you’ve been bitten by The Bug yet, but I’m definitely in the throes of spring cleaning around my home. Consequently, I will be taking advantage of a tire roundup happening this Saturday in Walnut Grove.

To celebrate the grand opening of the OK Tire store on 96th Avenue, just west of 200th Street, they’re holding this tire collection event in conjunction with Tire Stewardship BC. It runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Stop in, welcome them to the neighbourhood, and dump your junk on their doorstep. Heck, bring all the old tires you can find – on or off rims – they’ll gladly accept them all.

Cooking up for Crohn’s

Also on the books Saturday is the annual charity barbecue at the M&M Meat Shops.

From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. the stores will be cooking up hamburgers or hotdogs, and selling them and chips plus a drink for a minimum $3 donation to Crohn’s and Colitis Canada.
