Annual volunteer cleanup day is just around the corner


Rusty Strait | Senior Reporter

Seems that no matter how much we sweep, mop and scrub, the Valley just keeps getting dirtier every year. You guessed it. It is clean-up time again in the valley. The Interfaith Council will be out there in full force and ready for action as they always are. Last year’s cleanup was outstanding with more than 8 tons of trash and junk removed from our streets and neighborhoods. Were you part of the clean-up crew? Feeling a little bit guilty? You can make up for your negligence this year by joining in with all of those volunteers.

This year the Council hopes to bring out 500 volunteers. The event is somewhat like an all day neighborhood party. Everyone will gather at 7 AM on September 23rd at 1151 Park Avenue in San Jacinto (The Church of the Latter Day Saints) where site assignments will be distributed.

Breakfast will be served by the Kiwanis and Exchange Club before any clean-up begins. All participants will be treated to a BBQ from 11:am until noon. The work involves cleaning up fields, yards and homes in our valley. You might know an elderly or handicapped person who needs some yard work done.

Please bring WATER, a hat and work gloves and tools, if you have them, including hoes, shovels, rakes and other gardening tools, etc. For more information or registration call 951-384-591.
