Volunteer Work Day - Tamkaliks Grounds Cleanup

Help us erase the footprint of the hundreds of visitors to the Homeland grounds over Tamkaliks Celebration weekend. Breaking down tents, cleaning up trash, stowing away chairs & tables, taking down the parachute and more must be done on Monday, once all the fun is done. Many hands make light work, and everyone will be wiped out from the big weekend so the more hands the better!
