Four members of the City’s Beautification Advisory Commission participated in a Keep it Clean, road-side clean up last Saturday morning and invited some industrious youngsters along to take part and dig in.

These students are not strangers to community service.  From raking leaves for elderly homeowners, to working in soup kitchens, these kids have already learned that giving back is good.

The clean-up took place on the east side of Baldwin Road between Great Lakes Crossing Drive and South Vista Drive.

A big thank you to City Councilperson, Cheryl Verbeke; BAC Chairman, Rich Foster; Vice-Chair, Celeste Yoskovich;  former BAC Chairperson, Patricia Ormsbee and our wonderful students.
