Volunteer for dump the junk!

This weekend is the annual neighborhood clean-up with Creston-Kenilworth Neighborhood Association and we could still use more volunteers.  Come help us out and you can dump for free!  Such a deal.  A few hours for the joy of being relieved of the stuff that is holding you back and taking up unnecessary space in your garage/basement/attic/house/car, you name it.  Email me if you can volunteer a shift (or two).  Hope to see you there!
