Our summer Highway Cleanup dates will meet on Saturday, June 24th, July 29th, & August 26th at 9:00am. For all of you new members, friends, & community, PUMC is responsible for cleaning Cedar Hills Dr. from Knoxville/Rt. 40 to Bland Rd. (See map below.)

We need 6-10 people meeting in the Banner School parking lot at 9:00 a.m. for approximately 1 hour on the last Saturday of the month. If there is a Sunday School class or family that would like to do it as a group but at a different time/day, that is great — just get in touch with Lois Yoches (309-264-9080) or contact the office.

The county supplies the neon, reflective vests and trash bags; each person should bring working gloves and sturdy shoes. The cleanup works best if one person stays on the top portion of the ditch and one covers the lower part so no one has to walk up and down the steep ditch.

See you in the Banner School parking lot at 9:00 am!
