Denise would like to see more advertising with Facebook, signs and the next-door app. Christi said we will have 100 High school students scattered though out the city doing other projects. We will have a shredder truck available for Haltom city residents. The limit will be 4 or 5 boxes Christi will check on the number. We will meet at the environmental center and locate the shredder truck there. Christi said there was a lot of reports of glass on the trails and she will bring some little brooms and dust pans. We need the following supplies snacks, drinks, gloves, trash bags, trash grabbers and T-shirts.

    Christi said this is just an art show that maybe the beautification board can navigate with the senior center with doing 2 craft shows. Wayne has mentioned having community garage sales at the current TCC building.
