This year’s, 3rd Annual St. Patty’s Day Pick & Pub event was a wet and dreary day leading to a smaller then expected turnout of volunteers. Despite the numbers we were still able to collect over 835lbs of litter from the streets of our beloved downtown area. Afternoon lunch was provided by Mission Station Grill and every participant walked away with prizes courtesy of many local businesses who greatly appreciated their efforts to clean up our downtown! If you missed this event and would like to attend our next community cleanup, join us in celebrating Earth Day on April 21st at FV Heritage Park.
