Grab your rake or leaf blower, meet at Fuller Park (4800 Grand Ave S) to grab a cookie and some hot apple cider, and head out for a fun afternoon. This is a great family service activity and children and youth are very welcome to participate. Sign up as a team or individually and we can assign you to a team.
