DEL CERRO YOUTH TAKE PART IN COMMUNITY CLEAN-UP INITIATIVE

A community youth organization will participate in a community clean-up event Thursday, June 20, 2002.

The Del Cerro Youth Stars will clean the Stern Drive area to prepare for a block party sponsored by the Doña Ana County Sheriff’s Department. The purpose of the block party is to recognize the Youth Stars for receiving top honors in a local talent show, group organizer America Terrazas said.

The clean-up event is scheduled from 8 a.m. to noon, and the block party will be held Saturday, June 22, at the Del Cerro Community Center. Terrazas said the group will also hold a carwash fundraiser on Saturday, June 29 at the community center.
