from 2 to 4pm below SpringHill Suites in Lawrence.  Join Friends of the Kaw clean up the south side of the Kansas River in Lawrence.  We will meet at the Heartland Community Health Center parking lot just north of New York and E. 7th Street.  What to wear: closed toe shoes, work gloves, long pants and long sleeves (dress appropriately for the the weather - the event will be canceled if it is raining, or snowing.)  Optional to bring: small shovels, wire cutters and buckets for carrying heavy items.  Friends of the Kaw will provide trash bags, water, soda and snacks. SpringHill Suites is providing a dumpster for all trash collected. Sunflower Recycling is providing recycling services for all recyclables. Friends of the Kaw's Lawrence GiveBack Charity 10K team will also be earning flags for the competition to earn a cash donation.  You can register for a Lawrence GiveBack card at this event and help us raise funds all year round.
