If you’re feeling motivated for some wholesome volunteer exercise this weekend I’ve got just the thing for you. Saturday, April 18th, a group of downtown diehards are rolling up their sleeves, putting on their work boots, grabbing their gloves and heading downtown to do a little community spring cleaning. Each year, in honor of Earth Day, students, residents and business owners who are united in their love of downtown Kent assemble an action team, armed with scrub brushes and trash bags, to spend a half day thinking globally and acting locally. This is as shovel ready as it gets — and they’ll even provide the shovel. If community spirit doesn’t move you maybe curiousity will as this is a great way to see all the new construction work going on downtown up close and personal.
Besides the sense of fulfillment you’ll get, the volunteers will also be fed by food donated by local businesses. So work up an appetite and then get it satisfied with a taste of Kent.
The team of volunteers will meet and start at 10:00 am at the Rock Cafe on Water Street.
