Meet at 9AM to register, get free T-Shirts, work gloves, trash bags, and Litter-Gitters. 

When you’re done cleaning up, come join us from 1- 2PM at Mancino’s on Superior Street in Alma for Pizza and fun prizes! 

 

Register at either one of two locations:

On October 15, 2005, Volunteers collected over a ton and a half of trash from the Pine River and other areas, including a large submerged TV set, countless plastic toys, and “disposable” items like empty beverage containers and fast-food containers, furniture, bike parts, automobile fluids, and many other trash items.
