Cleaning up Como Lake
Bring your canoe or kayak—or rent one while supplies last—as neighbors once again pull together to pull trash from Como Lake. If you don’t want to be on the water, join us by walking the shoreline and picking up litter.
District 10 will provide cleanup supplies, coffee and doughnuts. Cleanup is scheduled from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Aug. 3, at the docks outside the Lakeside Pavilion. Another lake cleanup is scheduled for Oct. 12.
