Civic Center clean-up March 13

At least 100 volunteers are needed to help clean up around the Keizer Civic Center Saturday, March 13.

Each year, the Rotary Club of Keizer and Claggett Creek Watershed Council host a morning of work ranging from picking up trimmings from trees, shrubs and grasses to removing weeds and more.

The clean-up is scheduled from 9 a.m. to noon, but many hands make light work and could mean a quicker finish. Pandemic-related safety protocols will be in effect throughout the effort.

Volunteers can simply show up the day of the event and are encouraged to bring wheelbarrows, plastic trash cans, rakes, tarps, pruners, weed pullers and other tools that might be useful.

Unless there is an inch or more of snow on the ground, the effort will not be canceled. Long pants, sturdy shoes, gloves, hats and coats are encouraged.

The Keizer Civic Center is located at 930 Chemawa Road N.E. A collection box and disposal are being donated by Loren’s Sanitation.
