If you know you will be unable to attend, please cancel your registration by email so we can fill the reservation.

Can’t make it for Spring Cleaning?  You can still help by promoting our volunteer projects with your friends and neighbors! Students can receive credit for community service hours.  We will also be adding more volunteer opportunities as the season continues.
