In preparation for the Texas Cowboy Reunion visitors, the Stamford Chamber of Commerce is planning a community cleanup for Saturday, June 30, 2018.
“We have company coming to town soon,” Caitlin Richards, Stamford Chamber of Commerce Executive Director said. “Just like we would tidy up our own homes for guests, it’s time to do some downtown cleanup to prepare for our TCR visitors.”
Last year, about 20 volunteers from the community joined the Chamber for the cleanup. This year the Chamber hopes to have even more in attendance. The entire community is invited to come out and help with the cleanup.
The Chamber encourages citizens to coordinate groups of friends, coworkers, or families to participate. However, a group is not necessary to participate. Individual citizens are welcome to show up on June 30 to be a part of the cleanup.
The cleanup will focus on the Square and high TCR traffic areas. After coordinating with the City of Stamford and Reclaiming Stamford, the Chamber plans for the main tasks to be picking up trash, pulling weeds and general cleanup of other eyesore areas. Volunteers are asked to bring gloves, rakes, brooms, tree clippers and ladders.
