KINGS BEACH, Calif. — On Saturday, June 6, more than 100 volunteers in Kings Beach, Tahoe Vista, Carnelian Bay and Crystal Bay will take to the streets to pick up trash prior to the busy summer season.

Registration will be at 9 a.m. at Community House, located at 265 Bear St. in Kings Beach.

At registration, volunteers will be assigned specific locations to distribute efforts most effectively, and they will be provided with gloves, bags, snacks and volunteer appreciation goodies, while supplies last.

While cleaning up, volunteers who find “Golden Items” win prizes donated by local businesses.

After the “dirty work,” volunteers are invited to a party from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Tahoe Central Market in Kings Beach, where they will enjoy complimentary food, beverages and music.

Following the party, Tahoe Central Market will host its second annual summer kick-off party featuring live music, local farmers, vendor booths and craft beer and wine tasting.

Last year, more than 100 volunteers picked up more than 2,800 pounds of garbage at North Tahoe’s Clean Up Day, which is produced by North Tahoe Business Association.
