HELENA – Even though the current conditions outside don’t indicate that spring is here, in just a few short weeks the weather will begin to warm and flowers will bloom and it’ll once again be time for the annual Helena Beautification Board Spring Clean Up Day.

The Helena Beautification Board is excited to announce the annual Spring Clean Up Day will be held Saturday, March 2, from 8 a.m. to noon.

Anyone willing to help is invited to join the beautification board to help spruce up Old Town Helena. The clean up will consist of shaping up shrubs and roses, sprucing up planting beds, the rose trial site and doing a general clean up in the Old Town area and at Helena City Hall. This will also be a perfect time for any Helena students trying to earn community service hours.

Volunteers should bring their own gardening tools and gloves in an effort to make Helena Beautiful. All volunteers are asked to meet at the Caboose on March 2 at 8 a.m.

The Helena Beautification Board is an appointed board of the Helena City Council. The board believes that people and places are profoundly connected and thriving communities are rooted in individual responsibility and action. They host a variety of opportunities for the community to come together and serve each year. Events are posted on the Helena Beautiful Facebook page and announced via Twitter at @TweetHomeHelena.
