East Hill Partnership plans Feb. 9 cleanup

The East Hill Partnership has organized a quarterly cleanup from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Feb. 9.

Volunteers meet at the Golden Steer Restaurant, 23826 104th Ave. SE, Kent, at 9 a.m. for coffee, refreshments and orientation. Groups will deploy to determined locations along the Benson Highway (104th Avenue SE) at 10 a.m.

Following the cleanup, groups will debrief and have a sponsored lunch at noon at the Golden Steer.

The East Hill Partnership has joined the city of Kent's Adopt-a-Street program to maintain a section of the Benson from 236th south to 248th.

Although it is an East Hill Partnership event, the public – from residents to businesses – are welcome to help.

To join the cleanup crew, please call Michael Skarin at 206-450-0332.
