This event is held annually in the month of April. Individual volunteers, groups, businesses and churches gather to pick up trash along the town's roadways. It may not sound like a whole lot of fun, but it really is! And our town looks so much better afterwards!
Everyone will meet at Gazebo Park at 8:00 for bags, gloves, vests and assignments. Certain roads are chosen ahead of time for the assignments. Snacks and water provided.
