Have a fun day with friends and neighbors while helping to make your neighborhood cleaner and more beautiful!  Local towns are scheduling clean-up days and volunteers are needed to don gloves and pick up trash.

Preston Pride Clean-Up day will be held Saturday April 23.  Meet at the Trailhead at 9 a.m., head out to clean things up, and come back to the Trailhead at noon for lunch.

Lanesboro's clean-up day is scheduled for May 7 from 9 till 11 a.m.  If you want to help clean-up around town, meet at the Community Center at 9.  Volunteers will also be cleaning up the Root River - meet at Root River Outfitters to help out.

Help keep our beautiful small towns clean and welcoming to visitors during the tourist season.  And remember - don't litter!
