“Last week we noticed how much garbage is tossed into our surrounding neighbors’ yards and ditches. When my daughter complained of the litter and said we should do something I agreed,” Melissa Salmela, mom said.

Two hours and three trash bags later, the family says the felt good about keeping the community clean.

“Our hope is that people in the Northland will do the same. We are challenging others to do their part in keeping their community clean and do it safely. We also practiced safe social/physical distancing with our friendly community who were out walking, running and biking,” Salmela said.
