Reminder: Spruce up the Springs: Community Clean - Up
Wednesday, September 12, 2012

This Saturday, September 15, we need your help to SPRUCE up the Springs. This is a city wide effort to do all we can to make our city shine by cleaning out the weeds on medians and right-of-ways in many of our neighborhoods.

It’s a big job and we can’t do it without you. We are calling on all citizens, scout troops, sororities, clubs, church groups, student councils, athletic teams, and neighborhoods to help in this effort.

Those wishing to participate who are not a part of a neighborhood group can meet on the event day, at Sand Creek Soccer Stadium,4385 Tutt Boulevard (next to Security Services Field), by 7:30 a.m. All volunteers must be at least 16 years old. Participants are advised to bring their own work gloves, sunscreen, sunglasses and water.

Let’s be good stewards together- You can help by simply contacting Stacy Fritts at the City of Colorado Springs at 385-6519 or email Stacy at

The City is partnering with numerous neighborhood organizations, volunteer organizations and Fort Carson to assist in a day dedicated to “Spruce up the Springs.”

Join the City Team, Ft. Carson and others for a few hours on Saturday to make an impact and give back to the community.  Make a difference and come together in the Spirit of the Springs!
