Welcome to the Friends of the Little Spokane River Valley

Friends of the Little Spokane River Valley held their annual cleanup day for the Valley on Saturday, April 16, 2011. Approximately 20 volunteers and members met at the bottom of Shady Slope. The group cleaned 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.
They collected a lot of trash, miscellaneous wood, glass and a few tires. Estimated total trash was 700 to 800 lbs. less than the previous year?s total. Maybe we?re slowly getting ahead of it and people are becoming self-conscious of throw stuff out the window!
After the cleanup, a chili feed was held on Bart and Lindell Hagen?s front porch for those who helped out. Those who cooked: Tina Wynecoop and Lindell Haggin made chili, Martha Schafer and Roberta Ellis made cornbread and Harla Jean Biever baked the cookies. Thanks
to all who helped with both cleanup and the cooking!
- MARK YOUR CALENDARS -
Next year's cleanup is scheduled for April 14, 2012. We will send out a notice to remind you and set up the signs a week in advance.
Thank you for your continued support to keep our Valley clean.
