If  you took advantage of the warm weather to walk around town lately, you may have been irked to see litter lining some of our streets.

This weekend, the Rotary Club is sponsoring it’s 24th Annual Earth Day Clean Up. (I guess it’s a tribute to Earth Day-week, since it doesn’t take place today.)

On Saturday, April 26th community members are encouraged to volunteer time cleaning our streets. The starting time is 8:30 am at Southborough DPW Building. There will be coffee, pastries and T-shirts available at sign up. (First come first served.)

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

In between, you’ll be helping to clean up the streets in town. Remember to BYOG – Bring Your Own Work Gloves!!

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 27th.
