Due to inclement weather, the 17th Annual Community Trash-Off, sponsored by Shangri La Botanical Gardens and Nature Center, has been rescheduled. It will be held Saturday, February 18 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Orange Lions Park.

Come join friends, neighbors, co-workers and other members of the community on Saturday, Feb. 18 to help keep the streets of the Orange community and the banks of Adams Bayou clean. Last year, this event collected more than 16,000 pounds of trash to help beautify the area and protect the environment.

Forms may be returned via email to njordan@shangrilagardens.org or fax to 409.670.9341. Those who have already signed up and will be unable to make the Feb. 18 date, please call Noelle Jordan at 409.670.0803 or email njordan@shangrilagardens.org.

After the trash pick-up, all volunteers will regroup and relax at Orange Lions Park to enjoy complimentary pizza and soft drinks for lunch. Also, over 300 prizes donated by local businesses will be awarded to various teams.
