District 6 Spotlight
Trash Talk
Friday, January 11th, 9:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
Bascom Community Center,
1000 S. Bascom Ave.

Instead of sitting around drinking coffee, I've decided to make our time together one of action along with information sharing. Let's pick up trash while we talk! Our third session of "Trash Talk" will take place on Friday, January 11th, from 9:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m., starting out at Bascom Community Center (1000 S. Bascom Ave.)

Residents of District 6 are invited to join me and my District 6 Office team to pick up trash along Southwest Expressway. This will be a great opportunity for District 6 residents to talk to me and my staff about issues you are concerned with in our district and clean up our neighborhoods all at the same time! All-trash collecting equipment will be provided.

We're also giving away FREE LED light bulbs to all volunteers.
