Village Clean-Up is Almost Here!
Spring has sprung and it's not just crocuses springing up from under the snow! It's time for us to come together again to make our town the shining example it is. We will be holding the event virtually with each group working independently and sharing their haul on social media. Please save May 1st (rain date May 8th) for Village Clean-Up Day!
