'Spruce Up' this weekend

“Spruce Up Forks” on April 12 is a community-wide effort to clean up problem areas in and around the city of Forks. Local clubs, businesses and citizens will be donning their orange vests to pitch in and give Forks some love, by picking up litter, window washing, doing some much needed landscaping and more.

Volunteers will meet at First Federal at 9 a.m. for a safety briefing, donuts, assignments, vests and supplies. There also will be a drawing for volunteers at the end of the cleanup for two dinners for two at Creekside Restaurant at Kalaloch Lodge. After the cleanup there will be signs posted to remind people that the area was cleaned by volunteers.

The Forks Chamber of Commerce would like to thank the Revitalization Committee, West End Business & Professional Association, Forks Police and Cadets, Bogachiel Garden Club, Pacific Coast Salmon Coalition, Forks Avenue Real Estate, the Christian Men’s Group, Soroptimist International of the Olympic Rain Forest, Forks Lions Club and the Clallam County Chain Gang for their involvement in this endeavor.

We appreciate First Federal, Forks Broadcasting, Forks Forum, Forks Outfitters, Forks True Value, 110 Business Park, WSDOT and Kalaloch Lodge for providing what was needed to make this happen.If you would like to join in the effort, either individually or with a team, or would like to make a monetary donation, contact the chamber or just show up. All are welcome to attend and we thank you for helping us to “Spruce Up Forks!”
