Volunteers can expect to pick up trash, clean up scattered debris from previous storms, and plant flowers. A hot dog lunch will be provided for all volunteers, and those who arrive early will receive a free t-shirt. The cleanup starts at 9 a.m.


Registration begins at 8:30 the day of, or call the Parks and Recreation Department at (573) 339-6340.
