If you visit Sylvan Lake, take your garbage home with you

This past weekend saw the invasion of our quiet town with people coming from all over the local area.

They did not come to contribute to the economic welfare of our local merchants and/or restaurant owners.

They came to enjoy the beach and the lake.

Unfortunately, they clogged the streets with bumper to bumper traffic jams and parking everywhere in spite of obvious no parking signs.

These visitors also paid no attention to social distancing while at the lake area.

When they left, what they left behind was mounds of garbage.

In future, when/if you come back to this quiet town, take your garbage home with you.

If you can’t respect our town and what it has to offer, please don’t bother coming.
