May 7 is ‘Day of Caring’ in Little Falls and Randall; social sites set around Little Falls at the end of the day

On Wednesday, May 7, Little Falls Community High School students and staff will hold the fourth annual Day of Caring. All of the high school students and staff, along with some community businesses and individual members, will provide more than 3,000 hours of outdoor, spring cleanup service to seniors, disabled and homebound individuals within the cities of Little Falls and Randall.

Nearly 1,000 volunteers, including about 760 students, will help more than 155 individual homeowners who have signed up for assistance during the event. In addition, the volunteers will work on outdoor clean-up projects at city parks and community areas.

The public is reminded to drive cautiously on Wednesday morning between 9 a.m. and noon, because teams of students will be walking between work locations and crossing streets carrying rakes and other clean-up equipment.

    These social site gatherings sound like a great way to extend the Day of Caring.
    Here is hoping for great weather and great turnouts.

    Problems exist for city with their city owned banners for DAY OF CARING. All 3 banners for this event were much larger than the sign ordinance allows for. City events allow 32 sq ft max and must be erected on city owned property. City chose to erect them illegally on other properties, which made these 3 banners without permits, illegal off premise signs. One was on boys and girls club signpost…..another in front of middle school and another in front of middle school. City is still busy violating its own laws. This is a problem, especially right now. Bad timing is only a small of the city’s ignorance. City is mandated to hold this community event in order to have city garbage agreement/contract with the county landfill. I will have much more to expose during the upcoming election. My campaign folder is already 3 inches thick. I can’t wait.
