Operation 9-2-99 Clean Up

Saturday, September 12th – South Bank – Clean Up Details
● The clean-up is from 9:00 AM – NOON.
● Meeting place is River Rd. at the 7th St. Bridge in front of Pepsi on the south bank of the
river.
● This cleanup requires a lot of walking and the terrain can be rough, steep, slippery or
hard to access but is mostly flat. We need a large number of volunteers for this cleanup
effort.
We want Operation 9-2-99 to be successful in accomplishing our goals and for our
volunteers to enjoy the experience of doing their part to reduce blight and improve our
community. We do not target people or their possessions. Our focus is on cleaning up
what has been left behind, abandoned, or illegally dumped. Please consider the
following guidelines as a volunteer to ensure a safe environment for everyone.
