Spring has sprung! Join us on Saturday, May 7th for the 52nd Annual Green Up Day! We at the Chamber always look forward to hosting this annual event in Springfield and are calling for volunteers to assist us with cleaning up our town after the long winter. Our aim is to encourage 200 participants! Please join us and help our town reach this goal! Join us to Green Up Downtown - We’ll be in the Springfield Food Co-op parking lot, 8am-12pm. OR Green Up your own neighborhood or somewhere else around town.
Please remember to dress appropriately – it is extremely important to wear work gloves, long pants, and proper footwear to protect against ticks and debris along your clean-up journey – and we suggest wearing bright colors (neon orange/neon pink) for visibility.
Bring rakes, shovels, brooms and any tools that might come in handy for clean-up. Volunteers will be on call throughout the morning to assist you with any questions you may have. Most of all, remember to have fun! You are bettering our town and community by sharing your energy and spirit to assist with maintaining Springfield’s beauty.
Our gratitude goes out to the Public Works Department! They will be going around to collect and properly dispose of all the filled bags and any trash items left on the sides of the roads. *PLEASE NOTE: Pick-up day is Monday, May 9th ONLY* Thank you to all our neighbors, friends, and community partners that contribute their time and energy and volunteer with us every year! We appreciate everyone's help in keeping Springfield green and gorgeous. It takes a village!
