We meet at 9:00 AM at the Town House (the white building at the corners of Bedford and Precinct Streets) on the dates listed above.

When we're done, the roadside looks nice, sometimes passersby holler their thanks and we even once in a while discover a surprising wild thing.
Do something different once a month 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.
