2020 was a challenging year for many! From families staying home, parents becoming psuedo teachers and volunteer organizations like Green Up Ashland to get creative on running this years event.
Due to the pandemic, our event was delayed till the fall. Signup was completely done online and with the help of volunteer, 63 Green Up bags were then delivered to participants.
We need to acknowledge some wonderful organizations like the Ashland Lions Club and Workmans Circle Group for cleaning up such large areas in town. Also wonderful cub and girls scout troops took part as well.
Thank you to the 40 Adopt-a-Street volunteers who helped keep our town cleaner than usual this year!
Thank you to those that participated this year. You can see all our 2020 stats and event pictures here.
Is the ONLY annual town-wide clean up event that occurs the first Saturday of May. Participation can be done individually, as a family or group (scouts, sports teams, civic or religious groups etc.) and is a great opportunity to enjoy the community outdoors while contributing to the look and value of your community.
