Hi. I didn't realize this was cancelled, so I showed up and put in 1 hour, 50 minutes. Luckily I brought my own bag and pickup stick - and wore my 2018 KAB shirt. Nabbed about 3 lbs of trash. Heavier than it would normally be since a lot of stuff was soggy. MUCH garbage from Central Market - plastic tasting cups, straws, receipt, produce bags, etc. Which raises the question - why was a group formed for a commercial site (not a park)? My reason for choosing this project is that my yoga studio is right there, and I see the trash several days a week. I made a point of cleaning up along the route to Yoga Yoga, but also picked up a ton of stuff in the CM parking lot.

Hello. Looking forward to the cleanup. I do not need a KAB shirt - I will wear one from a previous year. (Too many t-shirts!)
