Spring Cleanup Day

Volunteer your time to help beautify Lakeside at the annual Spring Cleanup Day. The event will take place from 8:45 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, April 29. Volunteers of all ages are welcome to participate.

In past years, more than 75 dedicated Lakeside volunteers have worked together to help improve the overall appearance of the grounds and facilities.

At this year’s event, help Lakeside break a record for the most volunteers. We would love to see 80 volunteers this year. Volunteers are needed in the following areas: landscaping, cleanup in the parks/waterfront and preparing various buildings.

Participants will meet at 8:45 a.m. in Chautauqua Hall to sign up for one of the many projects. Projects will begin at 9 a.m. Lunch will be served at 12:30 p.m.

To RSVP, contact .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) by Wednesday, April 26.
