Help beautify your neighborhood! The Sligo Woods Civic Association is sponsoring our annual neighborhood cleanup on Saturday, May 20th from 9:00 am-11:00 am. We will meet on the hill on Tenbrook across from Robin Rd (aka “Sledding Hill”). The civic association will provide trash bags and gloves. Neighbors will fan out throughout the neighborhood to pick up trash. Come back to the hill to swap stories and grab a popsicle at 11:00 am. Meet your neighbors and do good! Our rain date will be May 21st.
