Spring is here! Which means it’s time to clean up the remnants of a harsh winter.

Volunteers are needed for Bettendorf in Bloom, which takes place on Saturday Apr 6. Bettendorf in Bloom will focus on the clean-up and beautification of downtown streets and the I-74 corridor to Middle Road, in Bettendorf.

Volunteers will meet at 8 a.m. at the Quad Cities-Waterfront Convention Center (2021 State Street Bettendorf). A quick announcement of key places to clean safety rules and more will take place at that time. At 8:15, volunteers will head out to begin the clean-up!

Grabbers, bags, vests and gloves will all be provided. All volunteers will receive a t-shirt, drinks and snacks. To sign up as a volunteer today, visit https://www.bettendorf.org/egov/apps/action/center.egov.
