Called “FXBG Love Scrub,” the event will call on volunteers to pull weeds, sweep up debris, wash trash cans and more. It’s planned for 9 a.m. to noon.
Local Realtor Chip Taylor came up with the idea for the event and contacted the City’s Public Works Department. The City will provide support to the event, but it will be run by volunteers. People interested in participating are asked to come to Market Square at 8:45 that morning with their face coverings, gloves, tools, broom, dustpan, trash bag and maybe a bucket of soapy water.
“As Virginia opens back up for business and welcomes guests, let’s return the favor and show our love for downtown,” Taylor wrote on his Facebook page.
