Seth Kabala,

Silvis is seeking volunteers for its annual cleanup program, from 8 to 11 a.m. Saturday at the city barn, 1207 1st Ave.

Volunteers will pick up trash along the roads. The city will provide gloves, bags and tongs.

"Some people come for the entire cleanup effort, while others come for 45 minutes or whatever length of time they can spare,"Ald. Caryn Unsicker, 4th Ward, chairman of the public services committee, said.

For people needing added incentive, she adds, "There will probably be donuts and water."
