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.
