Team Rotary was part of over 100 volunteers cleaning up Santa Barbara as part of Mayor Clean Up Day.
Over 100 volunteers banded together to clean up Santa Barbara as part of Mayor Clean Up Day.
The volunteers were scattered throughout the city, cleaning everything from the waterfront and funk zone to West Beach and downtown State Street.
Cleaning was not just limited to trash pick up. It also included removing graffiti and reporting illegal dumping and abandoned shopping carts for pick up.
Santa Barbara Mayor Randy Rouse was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness of State Street and proud of the volunteers. He said, "It's heart warming to see that kind of enthusiasm...not people just sitting on the sidelines and complaining and wondering why nobody does anything. They're doing it, and they're doing it on a volunteer basis. It's fabulous."
