The Country Club Alliance of Neighborhoods (CCAN) held their first community cleanup Saturday April 18th. Utilizing the County of Sacramento's "Adopt a Street" program, about 50 volunteers from all over the Arden Arcade area (and a family from El Dorado Hills) spent half of the day cleaning El Camino Ave from Eastern to Fulton, Yorktown Ave and Balmoral Ave from El Camino Ave to Watt Ave, and Butano Dr from El Camino Ave to Watt Ave.
The various cleanup crews removed a number of large bags of trash from the cleanup sites and even came across some odd items such as a chandelier, a large kitchen knife, a burning mattress, and an old walker.
Afterwards, volunteers met back at Emigh's Outdoor Living for a community meal.
CCAN would like to thank all of the sponsors who made this event possible, most notably Emigh Hardware and Emigh Outdoor Living who provided tables, chairs, shade, grills, buckets, and their parking lot (among a laundry list of items) for our event.
