Community clean-up day Saturday

May 15—EPHRATA — The Ephrata Chamber of Commerce will host a community clean-up day Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Volunteers will clean parking lots and sidewalks, pick up trash and pull weeds as well as plant flowers and other cleaning and beautification activities. The event will focus on Basin Street from Second Avenue SW to Second Avenue NW — from Les Schwab Tires to just before Tequila's Mexican restaurant — during the event.

The community is invited to help and volunteers can meet at Rock Park, 32 Basin Street NW, shortly before the event begins. Volunteers are encouraged to bring gloves and push brooms. The city of Ephrata will be assisting in the event, but additional volunteers are needed.
