The Keep Antioch Beautiful Committee is seeking volunteers for the 2013 Keep Antioch Beautiful volunteer cleanup event. Over the past 3 years, over 1,500 volunteers turned out for this all-volunteer event and 30,000 pounds of trash was collected and deposited in Allied Waste dumpsters located at local schools. The 4th annual event once again chaired by former Antioch Councilmember Martha Parsons and this year is co-chaired by Antioch Mayor Wade Harper and will be held on Saturday, April 20th from 8:30-11 AM. A free volunteer thank you lunch will be served following the event at Contra Loma Regional Park. This is your opportunity to give back to your community.
