Meet at the Fire Station and they will hand out trash bags to all volunteers. Everyone may help but children under age 12 must be accompanied by an adult. Volunteers should bring gloves to wear to pick up trash and comfortable walking shoes. Splashing on some sunscreen will be a good idea too and a hat to keep the sun from your eyes.
