Important Update: Community Clean-Up Events

While rain is great for our community, it's not so great for outdoor events. Due to the wet weather, the Cornucopia Garden Clean-Up on Wednesday March 22 has been postponed until late April.

The good news is, you can still sign-up for our Promenade Beach Clean-Up this Saturday, March 25 from 9am - 11am.

Thank you for volunteering to keep our community clean and safe for all!

Sign-up to clean-up!
