    Valley Cleanup 2014
    By Michael Kennedy
    Friends of the Little Spokane River Valley held their annual cleanup day for the valley on Saturday, April 26, 2014. Last year in 2013, we had a below normal turnout; but this year we got back to our normal amount of volunteer's--around 30 people. We had enough to cover all the routes. Thanks to everyone!

    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 area along US 395.

    We collected a lot of paper trash, miscellaneous wood; someone dumped a construction load over Shady Slope with windows, carpet, wood, etc. Estimated total trash was 40 to 50 bags, some tires, metals more than the previous year’s total. Good job!!

    After the cleanup, a chili feed was held at Bart and Lindell Hagen's house for those who helped out. Thanks to those who prepared food: Tina Wynecoop and Lindell Haggin for the chili, Martha Schafer and Roberta Ellis for the cornbread, and Harla Jean Biever for the cookies.

    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!
