Roadside Cleanup

September 29, 2022

Saturday, October 15, 2022, noon–2pm

First United Methodist Church sponsors one of the St. Louis County Roadside Cleanup locations, and twice a year schedules a time to make our community a little nicer.

Our cleanup area is a two-mile stretch of Maple Grove Road, from Lindahl Road to Solway Road.

The next cleanup time will be on Saturday, October 15, from noon to 2pm. We always need more help to make the workload a little lighter. Please call the church office at 218-727-5021 or contact Bill Alexander at if you are interested. You should dress for the weather, bring gloves, wear footwear suitable for walking in ditches, and meet us at the Faith Baptist Church parking lot at the corner of Midway and Maple Grove at noon. We will supply beautiful yellow vests and stylish garbage bags. Hope to hear from all of you.
