Foster-Powell & Mt. Scott-Arleta Neighborhood Cleanup is May 3!

Your neighborhood cleanup is coming! Saturday, May 3, from 9:00am to 2:30pm. Bring your bulky waste, mattresses, furniture, scrap wood, tires, bikes and bike parts, block foam, etc. and help support your neighborhood association at the same time! This is our biggest fundraiser of the year, and proceeds go to support our annual National Night Out party at Kern Park, the Movie in the Park at Essex Park (this year – “Goonies!”), and various other community-fostering events throughout the year.

Contact us at 971-235-0025 or absorenson@yahoo.com with questions or to volunteer.
