This year’s event will be held on Saturday September 10, 2016 from 9 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. Each year event volunteers pick up several tons of debris and litter and this year should be no different. The event’s success is noted by the increase of volunteer participation.

For the event to be successful we need your help with sponsorship. Individuals and companies can help by:
