5th annual MLK Day of Service litter clean-up is Jan. 21

Volunteers – individuals, students, scouts and families – are encouraged to participate in the fifth annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service litter clean-up along the Interurban Trail on Jan. 21.

The clean-up runs 1 to 3 p.m.

The group meets at the Kent Lions Skate Park on West Smith Street near the Lincoln/Valley Highway overpass in downtown Kent. Parking is available in the Park-and-Ride lot next to the skate park.

Please come dressed for the weather. Wear sturdy boots, bring work gloves and bottles of water. Trash bags and pick sticks will be available.

Last year, 78 volunteers signed up for last year's event, which was canceled due to a storm.

Registration deadline is noon Jan. 16.
