Spend your Sunday afternoon with us helping brighten your favorite neighborhood! Kendall Whittier Main Street is hosting a special clean up and planting afternoon on Sunday, October 25 from 1-5 p.m. Volunteers from KWMS, business owners, residents and friends all across the city will roll up their sleeves and get to work planting flowers and greenery, trimming trees and crepe myrtles and removing graffiti.

Volunteers can come and go as their schedules allow. Those ready right at 1 p.m. can meet at Whittier Square. If arriving later, call Jessica at 918-633-1934 to get started. Every 30 minutes volunteered will enter you into a raffle giveaway for a free Friends membership and a I Lub K-Dub t-shirt! Advance notice of your intent to participate is not required but is encouraged. You can call or text (same number as above).
We will provide gloves, bags, materials and equipment, but volunteers are encouraged to bring any shovels, rakes, trimmers, weed-eaters, mowers or other tools that might be useful. Masks will be required when working in close proximity to another volunteer outside your household.
After, stop over at the Tipton Community Fall Harvest & Garden Get-Together! ... See MoreSee Less
