Trash Talking In North Fair Oaks

OVER 100 VOLUNTEERS gathered on the morning of May 31 at the Fair Oaks Community Center to "Be Seen Keepin it Clean" community cleanup event sponsored by my office and several other organizations. We are grateful to the folks who showed up to do their part to keep the neighborhoods clean - and we are thankful for our many partners and sponsors.

In all, it was a great day. Volunteers working in small teams spread out to their assigned areas to pick up trash. Preliminary information shows that around 4 tons of trash was collected. Following the work part of the morning, we served a couple hundred burritos to the workers and enjoyed a short awards ceremony and raffle.

Thanks especially to all the young people who showed up and demonstrated an interest in their community.

Join us next year at our 3rd annual clean up day. Stay current with events taking place in North Fair Oaks - check out the North Fair Oaks Forward website here.
