Two Mile beach beautified by blitz

Due to the low lake levels, a group of Grades 3 to 5 students from Nelson Christian School decided to do a beach blitz and clean up as much of the Kootenay Lake shoreline as they could in an hour. They went to the beach at Two Mile on the North Shore and collected 120 lbs. (54 kg) of junk including rusted metal, wood, an old TV, glass, broken lawn chairs and cans, which they took to the dump. The students will be doing another beach blitz in the near future.
