The weatherman won the first round last week when the first Fall Downtown Business District Clean-up Day was postponed. Another attempt will be made this Thursday, September 27 from 5-7PM. Those interested may call Carl at 507-444-2218. By calling ahead plans can be made in regards to needed supplies such as rakes and shovels and such. Workers are to meet in the green space with the picnic tables next to Old Town Bagels on North Cedar.

Volunteers will be sweeping, raking and bagging up litter on our streets, sidewalks, alleys and parking lots in downtown Owatonna. It's hoped this can become an annual tradition with possibly a summer clean-up in July next year.

If needed because the weather wins out again, the rain date is set for October 4.
