Saugatucket River Cleanup | June
This event was started by a wonderful young lady when she was in 4th grade through the Youth Church of the Ascension of Wakefield in 2014. The WVA joined in to help and has supported her efforts every year since! The cleanup takes place on the first Saturday morning in June. We meet on the Saugatucket River Bridge just outside the Contemporary Theater break into groups and clean the banks of the river. Come out and clean up the river for all to enjoy!
