It was a day of clean up and community last Saturday, June 1, in Lafayette. More than 200 volunteers turned out for Lafayette's third annual Community Day, a partnership between the Community Foundation of Lafayette, the City of Lafayette and the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce. The day was devoted to service and celebrating all things Lafayette.
Volunteer teams fanned out across the city to clean up sidewalks, parks, roadways and creeks. Above, Will Elder (far right), chair of the Lafayette Creeks Committee, led committee members, City staff and volunteers in a project to remove nonnative, invasive plants along the West Reach of Lafayette Creek. The group collected 22 bags of material, making that portion of the creek, just east of Risa Road on Mount Diablo Boulevard, an even more beautiful spot to visit. It's all about community here in Lamorinda.
