LAKEVILLE LITTER LIFTERS MONTHLY PICKUP
Lakeville's Earth Day Clean Up may be over, however, our task to rid the town of litter has just begun for 2015.
Please consider joining Lakeville Litter Lifters on one or more of the following Saturdays: May 16, June 20, July 18, August 15, September 19, and October 17.
We meet at 9:00 AM at the Old Town Hall (the white building at the corners of Bedford and Precinct Streets) on the dates listed above. We then decide on an area in town in need of a clean-up and work on it for an hour or so. When we're done, the roadside looks nice, sometimes passersby may holler their thanks and we may even discover a surprisingly beautiful or fascinating wild thing.
Do something different once a month for an hour to make your town shine this spring, summer, and fall--- help us to clean up Lakeville and meet some new friends in the process!
For any questions, email us at LakevilleLitter-Lifters@hotmail.com or check us out on Facebook!!!
