Friends of the Little Spokane River Valley did not hold their annual cleanup day for the valley on Saturday, April 18, 2020 due to the Covid issues and Spokane County canceling our permit to use Moose Park in Gleneden.
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 Bidwell Park; and Golden Road, Midway, and Colbert Road including some new area along US 395.
We are going to tentatively hold the clean-up April 17, 2021, if the world is a safer place and people feel comfortable in an outside group. We will again use Moose Park starting at 9:30 AM. We need your time and continued support to help keep our Valley clean. This is also a good way to get to know your neighbors. We will send a notification as we come closer to the day. Re- member you can always clean up a little around your area on your own.
After the cleanup, an annual chili feed will be held at Bart and Lindell Haggin’s home for those who help out. Thanks to all who help with both cleanup and the cooking!
