Part 2: Community Clean-up

Fall Leaves Pick-Up - The Goldendale Horizons Project provided a fall leaves pick-up week in early November. The purpose was to provide leaf pick-up after residents raked, or if needed provide assistance to rake leaves. The leaves then are being used for mulch and/or compost by local residents. Flyers were sent to local stores and businesses to announce the event. Residents were provided phone numbers to call or schedule pick-up. Volunteers then, used their own vehicles to pick-up the bagged leaves. Pick-up was provided for about fifty residents in Goldendale. The National Junior Honor Society students of the Goldendale Middle School provided assistance to rake leaves. Thank you to the Clean-up Committee for organizing this event!!
