Just grab your gloves and join us by the green triangle just south of the Shell Station at the Beacon Junction anytime between 9am to noon.

If you can’t make it on Saturday take a moment to stop in and say thank you to the folks at the Shell Station who have been been doing upkeep, including throwing out trash, cutting down bushes and mulching for the past several years.
