From 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Citizens Helping Improve Parks (CHIP-In) is cleaning up the Astoria Recreation Center, 1997 Marine Drive. Volunteers are needed to spruce up the area with improvements such as power washing, putting in bark chips, hedging, mowing, weeding, picking up trash and painting the Kid Zone inside the center.
Volunteers will receive T-shirts, snacks, beverages, and all of the tools necessary to complete the tasks. CHIP-In is also providing prizes to kids for each bag of collected garbage or weeds.
Those who are interested in volunteering, sponsoring a cleanup or joining the CHIP-in email list can contact Melissa Keyser at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503-741-5965.
CHIP-In has other volunteer opportunities available with monthly park cleanups, as well as park adoption. Information is available on the Astoria Parks and Recreation Facebook page and at www.astoriaparks.com
