Mission: Clean Stream
Mission: Clean Stream was canceled this year do to freezing temperatures. In the months that followed we had over 110 dedicated volunteers participate in clean-ups around our city. Over 1,000 pounds of trash was removed from our city and the waterways in our community. A big thank you to all who participated!
