CFDL Spring Cleanup + Free Workout!
May 19th @ 3 pm - 5 pm
Spring has sprung and CFDL needs a good cleaning (in and out)!
We are asking for your help! :) Bring yourself/family and let's clean CFDL! Since we all enjoy working out so much, we will have a FREE mini workout that you and your family can participate in after! Workout TBD.
Below is the start of a wish list we'd like to accomplish!
- Cubbies/Lockers! We have noticed that some people have multiple lockers. In efforts to let everyone have a chance at a cubbie/locker, we are asking that you clean out your cubbie/locker, consolidate to one and label with your name. Any remaining items that are leftover/untouched will be set aside.
- Sweep concrete slabs
- Move tires
- Clean up garbage in back
- Clean windows
- Clean off track for running! YEAY! 😊
These are just a few things! Please feel free to bring any cleaning supplies you'd like (brooms, spray, etc). We will have some but not enough for everyone.
TEAMWORK makes the DREAM WORK!!
