Upcoming Tramway Cleanup!

Hi Everyone,
I hope you are well and looking forward to some cooler weather!

I would like to have a Tramway Cleanup day on Saturday, October 15th. That is the weekend after Balloon Fiesta, so I think it would be a great date. I have confirmed with NMDOT their availability to pick up what we collect on this date.

We will start at 10:00 a.m. by meeting in the Albertson’s parking lot. If you will be able to make it, please let me know in advance so I bring enough supplies. Please bring your own pair of gloves (and hat/sunscreen if you'd like). I will have the bags and stylish orange vests for everyone! You will be doing a great favor for awesome Tramway Blvd, which has the beautiful Sandias as its backdrop!  
Please share this information with anyone you think might be interested in participating.  
Thank you!
