Local residents are encouraged to join the 2013 Spring Culmore Cleanup Saturday, 9 a.m.-noon.
This semi-annual event has been going on for more than 10 years. It’s a huge collaborative effort that brings together teams from many organizations and companies, as well as individual volunteers, who not only pick up trash and other debris around Bailey’s Crossroads and Seven Corners, but educate the public about the importance of keeping communities litter-free and instilling civic pride.
Volunteers should check in at the Woodrow Wilson Library, 6101 Knollwood Drive, Falls Church, to pick up trash bags, t-shirts, and gloves—and enjoy coffee and light refreshments before heading off to work.
Following the cleanup, a free lunch will be served at the library, with entrees donated by Pollo Campero, desserts from City Diner, and water and orange juice from the Coca-Cola Co. Additional sponsors of the Culmore Cleanup include the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center, the Euro-Market Mobil, Radley Acura, the Rotary Club of Bailey’s Crossroads, and Safeway.
