On the List | Capitol Hill Clean Sweep, Soccer Jam, Parke Diem in Volunteer Park

The annual Capitol Hill Clean Sweep community service event hits the streets and common areas of the neighborhood on Sunday to get it sparkling clean.

Join up by meeting in Cal Anderson Park at 10am to register, eat breakfast, and pick up a t-shirt and cleaning supplies. Entertainment and lunch will also be provided.
