Thanks to Lisa and Pam for cleanup efforts!
From Katy Culver:
Thank to Lisa Aarli
and Pam Garcia-Rivera
who grabbed broom, shovel and garbage bags to clean up all the litter, leaves and cobwebs out on the 4th and 2nd floor entrances. Staffing shortages had everything looking so awful, and they turned it right around. Looks great!
