Two Community Highway Cleanup Events Set for Oct 9 & 16

Two Columbia Heights community groups are hosting highway cleanup events in Oct. Residents are encouraged to take part in these events and help keep the community clear of debris. Facebook events for both cleanups can be found at the bottom of this page.

The first event, hosted by the Columbia Heights Lions Club, is slated for Sat, Oct 9. Volunteers are asked to meet at Murzyn Hall at 8:30 am. The cleanup event covers University Ave NE (Highway 47).

Along with the cleanup event, a paper shredding truck and dumpster will be stationed in the Murzyn Hall parking lot for public use from 9 am to noon.

From 10 am to noon, the Columbia Heights Lions Club will also have a personal hygiene drive to benefit the Southern Anoka Community Assistance (SACA) Food Shelf & Thrift Store.
