Today, I was the twentieth person to show up in downtown Joshua Tree to pick up trash for an hour. Every Wednesday morning at 8 AM, Joshua Tree's "Clean Team" arrives at a pre-designated place along our highway to cheerfully and energetically scour the area of litter and dispose of it. I thought I'd give it a try this morning. I truly enjoyed it and want to go again next week, so it looks like I have become a member of the "Clean Team". It's a worthy cause. It's community service. It's outdoors. It's exercise. It's social. And when we leave, the area looks much better. Thank you, Gary and Michelle Given, for leading this ongoing project for so many years. You guys have been pillars of selfless service in our little community for as long as I've known you. This is a band wagon I'm happy to get on.
