Weekend Planner: Annual Lakes, Downtown Cleanup Slated

It’s a weekend for cleaning in Albert Lea as two major cleanup events are slated to take place.

The Lakes Foundation of Albert Lea has scheduled the annual lakes cleanup from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, starting at Frank Hall Park.

People are asked to meet at the park and receive gloves, trash bags, shirts for the children and assigned areas to clean up the lakes.

The cleanup will focus on picking up trash in Frank Hall Park and the Golden Point Launch area, both sides of the channel between Albert Lea and Fountain lakes, South Shore Drive landing near St. Nicholas Park, the Brookside Boathouse and launch area and City Beach.

Downtown Albert Lea cleanup will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. Volunteers are asked to meet at the Freeborn National Bank building for further instructions. Garbage bags will be provided, and volunteers are asked to bring brooms and gloves.
