Day & Time:
Saturday, April 26th ~ 9:00AM to Noon

We will gather between 9:00 and 9:30 in the parking lot of US Bank at the corner of 42nd & Alberta Court.
We will have some light refreshments to get us jump-started.

Sponsored by
Woodstock Motor Sports and US Bank
With a generous grant and support from SOLV

Equipment and supplies
We provide rubber gloves (bring your own work gloves if that is your preference), safety vests (bring your own if you have one) and disposal bags and associated supplies. We will not have litter grabbers, so you can bring your own if you wish.

Please join us for this fun and easy way to meet neighbors and make our neighborhood a little happier.
