ONTARIO – It’s time for a little spring cleaning around Ontario, and the Ontario Kiwanis Club is looking for helpers.

The club is scheduling its first City Clean-up for Saturday, April 2, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. It’s considered a “plogging” event – “picking up litter while jogging,” although volunteers can simply walk.

Bob Komoto of the club explained the need seen by members.

“The parks needed picking up,” he said in an email. “Also areas close to some of the more industrialized areas of town. But even Oregon Street in downtown Ontario had two large garbage bags full of trash. Parking lots were especially bad.”

Volunteers are asked to check in at Lanterman . . .
