Rain or shine, hundreds of Claytonians flock to City Hall every year on a Saturday morning in April to pick up garbage bags and gloves before spreading out to city parks, trails and neighborhoods for Clayton Cleans Up.
This event, to honor Earth Day, is the perfect opportunity for kids, adults, Scout Troops, service clubs, families and neighbors to spruce up the town for the Art and Wine Festival.
The free volunteer T-shirt is a special designer edition created by Creekside Artists Guild member, Janet White. “I have been very fortunate to live in the Clayton community for twenty years. It was a great privilege for me to design this year’s T-shirt. I will wear it proudly as I walk the trail with my garbage bag,” White says.
Volunteers meet at 9 a.m., Saturday, April 26, at City Hall to pick up a T-shirt, garbage bags and gloves. At 11:30, everyone meets back at City Hall for a barbecue lunch. Local organizations will be present or have information available for preserving the environment.
The event is sponsored by the Clayton Pioneer and the city of Clayton with generous donations from Republic Services, the CBCA, Travis Credit Union and local merchants.
