Riverfront Refresh Is A Chance For You To Make Davenport Beautiful
It's springtime in the Quad Cities which means the weather is getting warmer (for the most part), people will be going outside more, and the flowers are starting to blossom. While spring and summertime can be beautiful, the city of Davenport wants to make sure the city looks beautiful for residents and visitors. The city needs your help to clean up the Davenport riverfront during their 2nd Annual Riverfront Refresh event this month.
If you are looking to help make a difference and volunteer your time to a great cause, the city of Davenport is looking for volunteers to help clean up the Davenport riverfront.
According to the event posted on the city of Davenport's Facebook page, officials are asking those willing to volunteer to join the Davenport City Council and Riverfront Improvement Commission for their 2nd Annual Riverfront Refresh event.
This is a beautification and spring cleanup event that will include mulching, weeding, painting, and general trash and debris collection along and throughout the riverfront in Davenport.
Last year, volunteers could sign up for one of two time slots. For those that are available to volunteer again this year or for the first time, the only difference this year is that there is only one time slot where everyone can come beautify Davenport's riverfront.
The Riverfront Refresh event is happening Saturday, April 23rd, and clean-up will take place that day from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
If you signup, check-in, and assignment distribution that Saturday will be at the Freight House, 421 West River Drive in Davenport.
The Riverfront Refresh event is hosted by the Riverfront Improvement Commission. Officials say that the event will only be canceled if there is a chance for significant rain, snow, high winds, or threat of lightening. Officials remind volunteers to dress for conditions.

And to everyone helping with the cleanup, thank you!
