What is City Scrub? 

This annual program started in the spring of 2005. Every year schools, businesses, residents and community groups volunteer 20 minutes of their time to pick up garbage in and around the city.

Partnered with the Rotary Green-a-thon

City Scrub coincides with the annual Rotary Green-a-thon event.  The Green-a-thon is always held on the first Saturday in May (this year May 6th) and is coordinated by all 5 Rotary Clubs.
