After a very windy couple of days, the Southside Branch was treated to a wonderful sight on Saturday morning, April 21. A number of boys and girls were out picking up trash that had blown all around the building. They were members of Boy Scout Troop 53 of Santa Fe, with their adult mentors and siblings. They were participating in the Great American Clean Up Day for Earth Day. They also cleaned up the neighboring canyons and had collected many bags of trash. They all had fun collecting and spending time together. The Southside Branch appreciated their efforts.
