I forgot to include the annual Earth Day Clean up in my events of the week! So, here’s a reminder.

The Rotary Club is sponsoring it’s 27th Annual Earth Day Clean Up on April 22nd.

(Truthfully, it’s a tribute to Earth Day. Actual Earth Day is April 22nd. But how many people can ditch work to pick up litter?)

That Saturday, community members are encouraged to volunteer time cleaning our streets. The starting time is 8:00 am at Southborough DPW Building.

To motivate an early start, coffee, donut holes and T-shirts will be available. (First come first served.)

Volunteers are welcomed to celebrate their efforts at the Southborough Library at 11:30 am. Pizza, soda and ice cream will be served.

In between breakfast and lunch, you’ll be helping to clean up the streets in town. Remember to BYOG – Bring Your Own Work Gloves!! (Bug spray is also encouraged.)

Have a favorite spot that needs TLC? To adopt a favorite street in advance, call Southborough’s Department of Public Works at 508-485-1210.

Otherwise, you can sign up that morning at DPW’s location next to the Transfer Station.

The rain date for clean up is Sunday, April 23rd.
