Alberta Main Street is organizing a way for you to help the Alberta business district on Earth Day. It’s the Alberta Street Clean Up! Go to their website and pre-registration form. Check out their facebook event page. People can just show up on the day of but since lunch is being provided (thanks to Burgers or Bust Cafe) and some other special treats, they would like some idea of how many people to expect.
The clean up starts at 10:00 am on Saturday April 23 (Meet at Alberta Central Plaza between Barista & Umpqua Bank) and will end with lunch and a celebration where they hope to unveil the prototype of new Alberta Street garbage cans and debut the Art on Alberta mobile Art Gallery.

Support Alberta Main Street:
Healthy commercial districts create opportunities for locally based businesses to succeed, for residents to shop and eat locally and for the preservation of historic structures and an increased tax base. Everybody wins; it will also take everyone’s support. Ranging from $20 – $5000, 101 residents, neighborhood associations, school groups, non-profit & faith-based organizations, business owners and commercial property owners have contributed to our community. Alberta Main Street needs your help too. If you haven’t already, please contribute today: http://www.albertastreetfair.com/main-street/contribute/
