June 28 – Get the Trash Out got over fifty people out cleaning up Leadville and Lake County on Saturday, June 23.
Young Life seemed to rise to the top all the way around. First, by cooking up a delicious breakfast, and secondly by racking up first prize for most member participation. But perhaps the biggest winners of all were local residents as the community came together to rally some local pride and Get The Trash Out. Nice work everyone!
