It's that time of year again, time to get Dillo Dirt on the field at Pease Park! Join us Saturday (2/20) morning at 9:00am to get the field in top shape for the upcoming spring and summer months. We'll also be doing some general trash pick-up and flowerbed maintenance.
The plan is to meet near the historic picnic tables at 1100 Kingsbury. PPC provides all the tools and gloves necessary so volunteers are just asked to wear clothes and footwear appropriate for outdoor work.

More information on tasks and registeration to follow, but please save the date.more
