Huge Thanks to All Who Came Out
Our Sunday Clean Up on May19th was a sparkling success. We had over 30 participants for our largest regular Sunday Clean Up in two years. A big thanks for members of the Build Lake City Together Clean and Safe Committee and to all those that came out to lend a hand. We collected about 20 bags of trash, returned some stray shopping carts and collected six needles. We worked mainly around 28th Avenue in anticipation of the opening of the Lake City Farmers Market on June 6th. Please consider joining us for the next Sunday Clean Up. The schedule is below and we will update both this site and our Enjoyalkecity.org Facebook page with the location one week prior.
