Annual Neighborhood Clean Up, May 19th, 9:00-11:00 am

Next week will be our annual Neighborhood Clean Up on Sunday, May 19th, 9:00-11:00 am. We will meet at the sledding hill on Tenbrook (the open space at the top of the hill across from Robin Rd.). The civic association will provide trash bags, gloves, hand sanitizer, and doughnuts! Bring your family and friends to help clean up our neighborhood. You can clean up the wooded areas on the side of sledding hill, your own street, or target areas behind MacDonald Knolls school and the Verizon building. SSL hours will be available for middle & high school students. So far the weather looks like it will be warm & clear!
