Have Fun Volunteering for the East End!
Volunteers Needed! East End Clean Up The East End will have a general clean-up on Saturday, April 27 from 8:30am until 12:00 noon. This clean-up is under the auspices of Keep Cincinnati Beautiful. Volunteers should come to LeBlond Rec Center to pick up gloves, trash bags, water. and snacks. If you want to sign up early to claim a block or three, send an email to Jackie Weist.
