Help keep Scottsdale beautiful. Volunteers are needed.GPPA Video: “Keep the Scenic Drive Beautiful”
The next Scenic Drive roadside cleanup is Saturday, April 22 from 7:45 to 9:45 A.M.
Following the cleanup volunteers are invited to be included in The Peak’s free photo shoot and drawing from 9:45 A.M. TO 10:05 A.M.
Picking up litter is more enjoyable than you would expect, and there will be at least 13 miles of roadside (6 1/2 miles on each side) that will look terrific.
New volunteers are welcome. Join 20-40 other Friends of the Scenic Drive volunteers. Friends mans two sign-in locations: #1. northern Scenic Drive entry sign (located on the west side of Scottsdale Road south of Carefree Highway, immediately south of Terravita Marketplace), #2. Scenic Drive monument sign area, also referred to as the exhibit area, (located on east side of Scottsdale Road 3/4 mile north of Happy Valley Road, 1/4 mile south of Jomax Road, across from MacDonald’s Ranch). Safety vests, pickup “sticks,” and plastic trash bags will be provided. Complimentary coffee, and water are available. Gloves and long pants recommended. When you sign-in you will be assigned a specific roadside area to cover.
This cleanup will be like all the previous ones except Friends is adding two enjoyable activities to recognize past volunteers and attract new volunteers.
#1. Complimentary drawings for movie tickets and other prizes. When people sign-in at the cleanup they will receive tickets for the drawing.
#2. An informal photo of all the volunteers who show up for the cleanup will be taken at the monument sign. The photo will be published in The Peak.
These two optional and enjoyable activities are expected to last no more than 20 minutes and will be held at the Scenic Drive monument sign/exhibit area.
During the cleanup volunteer Cindy Lee will be taking photographs of volunteers in action. These photos might be incorporated into a short video that Friends can use to promote future cleanups.
HELP US SPREAD THE WORD AND THE WORK LOAD. Please tell your friends and neighbors about this special cleanup.
