Athabasca community clean-up and BBQ tour

The tour stopped in Uranium City on Sept 18, 2019. Most of the community members attended the event in the school gym.

In September, representatives from Points Athabasca, QM Points, SRC and ABD travelled to the Athabasca communities to meet with leadership, provide updates on the Gunnar project, and to serve up some end-of-summer burgers to community members and students. Students in many of the communities had spent the day outside cleaning up and picking up garbage. The tour stopped in Black Lake on September 17, Uranium City on September 18, Fond du Lac on September 19, and Wollaston Lake on September 20. The weather unfortunately did not cooperate for the BBQ in Wollaston Lake, so the burgers and hotdogs were donated to the school so that they could host their own BBQ on a day that was not so rainy. Over 1000 hotdogs, 1000 hamburgers and 34 gallons of macaroni were served or donated to the community.
