Help keep the roadside in front of StMM looking beautiful! Assist in cleaning up our adopted portion of Apex Barbecue Road (part of the NC Adopt-A-Highway Program). We need volunteers to spend one hour to help remove trash from the roadside. Volunteers will meet in the StMM parking lot at 3:00 p.m. on Sun October 18 to get supplies (bags, gloves, and safety vests provided). Please wear good walking shoes! Participants must watch a short safety video before joining the cleanup.
Thanks so much for your help!
