The Downtown Camas Association (DCA) invites community members to come share in the annual Spring Clean-Up and Planting Day in Downtown Camas on Sunday, April 28th from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Journey Community Church invites volunteers to come early at 12:30 pm for a grilled burger and hot dog lunch served by Journey volunteers.
In honor of Earth Day, which was started by Camas native Denis Hayes, the Downtown Camas Association, volunteers, local students, Journey Church, City of Camas staff, and other community members will be helping with:
• Sidewalk and landscape bed clean-up
• Planting flowers and plants
• Bark dust spreading
Bring your own shovels, spades, buckets, wheelbarrows and garden gloves. Wheelbarrows are especially needed. Garbage bags and rubber gloves are provided for litter pick up. Volunteers will meet in front of Journey (304 NE 4th) to sign in.
“We love to see the transformation of our town within just a few hours,” says Carrie Schulstad, DCA Executive Director. “Everyone comes together in a grass roots way, has fun and gets to see what a difference they make in the aesthetic and charm of our downtown. All ages can participate. Thank you to the City of Camas for all your help, to Journey Church for providing lunch and to all the wonderful volunteers that come rain or shine to beautify the town we love.”
The downtown improvements are done just in time to make downtown shine for the Annual Camas Plant and Garden Fair in Downtown Camas on Saturday, May 11th.
