Community Cleanups!

Saturday, April 1, 9 a.m. - Noon

This is your chance to do something proactive to help our waterways! Litter on school grounds, streets and parks often gets washed into creeks. As part of Creek Week, clean-ups will be held from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 1 in Winston-Salem, Clemmons, and Lewisville.  It's a great way to earn service hours!
