The Chamber of Commerce, City of Orofino, KLER, and Orofino Rotary club are spearheading a community spring clean up effort again this year. Individuals and organizations are asked to clean up around their homes and work places. In addition, groups and individuals are encouraged to sign up and clean an area in need in their neighborhood or community. To sign up or for more information please contact the Clearwater County Chamber of Commerce at (208) 476-4335 or email@example.com – Erica Holland, Director.
In celebration of Arbor Day, Urban Forestry of Orofino (UFO) in conjunction with the Idaho Dept. of Lands will be giving out free seedlings and holding an event raffle for ornamental trees. Information on planting and tree care will be available. For more information call the City of Orofino at (208) 476-4725.
Clean out your cabinets as the Clearwater County Sheriff’s Department will be collecting unused prescription medication to protect water quality and to prevent misuse. They are happy to take your unused prescription medications and dispose of them properly. Clearwater County Sheriff’s Department will be at Canon Park (corner of Michigan Avenue & Riverside Avenue) the day of Community Clean Up.
The community garage & estate sale in the Orofino City Park fair exhibition building will also be going on this year thanks to the Orofino Rotary Club. This is a good opportunity to clean up and recycle your household goods and make money doing it or support a good cause. Please contact Cathy at 208-851-8247 for more information or to reserve a booth.
