It’s Spring!

Join us as we clean up our neighborhood!

We will be cleaning SACRAMENTO for our April 2015 Clean Up. We’ll meet at 10:00 am on Saturday April 18th at the corner of Sacramento and Montrose and work our way south down Sacramento to Montrose.

Our goal is to dedicate at least one hour, one Saturday morning every month, to beautifying our neighborhood. In 2015, Clean Ups will take place the Second Saturday of each month.

We choose a different street each month, meeting at a designated corner at 10:00 am and cleaning for about an hour.

We ask that you please bring your own gloves and trash bags. A rake or shovel came come in handy too.

Feel free to invite anyone who may be interested in helping to make our neighborhood a cleaner place!
