Rock the Block

Once again as our Make a Difference Day we'll be coming together as a community to beautify North and South Boulevards in Port Huron. Registration begins August 15th at 8:00 am. Various shifts are available from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm, or you can help all day. Volunteers must be 18 or order. Lunch will be provided. Be sure to wear closed toe shoes that you don't mind getting dirty.

100 volunteers are needed for this day. You must pre-register for the event, walk-ons will not be able to participate due to the controlled nature of the event this year. Please register to help, and encourage your friends to do so also. Register with kara@bwhabitat.org or jdoyle@bluewaterchamber.com.
