    Valley Cleanup 2013
    by Michael Kennedy
    Friends of the Little Spokane River Valley held their annual cleanup day for the valley on Saturday, April 22, 2013. Last year in 2012, we had the largest turn out in years with about 30 people, and we had more than enough teams to cover every route and then some. Unfortunately, this year we had the lowest turnout I can remember and did not have enough teams to cover all routes. Some people even had to work alone. Our goal each year is to clean up most of the major roads in the valley from Wandermere to Perry; Shady Slope to the top of the hill; Dartford to Hazard Road; Hatch Road to the pool; and Golden Road, Midway, and Colbert Road including some new areas along US 395.

    We still collected a lot of paper trash, miscellaneous wood, glass bottles, and cans. Estimated total trash was 30 to 35 bags, less than the previous year's total.

    After the cleanup, a chili feed was held at Bart and Lindell Haggin's home for those who helped out. A big thank you to those responsible for a great meal: Tina Wynecoop and Lindell Haggin for the chili, Martha Schaefer and Roberta Ellis for the cornbread, Rick Kellogg for drinks, and Harla Jean Biever for the cookies. Thanks to all who helped with both cleanup and the cooking! Please mark your calendars for next year's cleanup scheduled in April. We need your time and your continued support and help to keep our valley clean!
