PEQUOT LAKES -- On Saturday, Aug. 26, the Pequot Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce will sponsor its first Pequot Lakes Community Clean Up Day.
The objectives of this event are two fold:
First, this event is being undertaken to provide the opportunity for community members to recycle various unused items and other debris in an effort to clean up and beautify the area.
Second, the proceeds from the fees for the recycling service over and above the cost of the program will be used to assist the chamber in the financing of the Trailside Information Center.
