Fernley

Clean-Up on Front Street

I helped celebrate my first full day as a Nevadan by unofficially participating in Fernley Clean-Up Day, a civic event where volunteers clean up around the city. We didn't go through all of the formal advance registration and turning up at assembly areas. We just went and cleaned up a bunch of junk from the vacant lot on the east side of the house. The brush there acts as a sort of magnet for plastic sacks (which do eventually degrade, especially in this sun, but are ugly looking) and people have tended to toss beer bottles and other junk into the lot.

It wasn't a huge amount of junk removal, but we did do a little bit to brighten our corner of Fernley.
