Chico, Calif. - The group "Chico First" is planning a Kids Cleanup and Social Event for Saturday, June 16th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Children's Park at 1st Street and Broadway.
The goal is to "launch" a continued presence in areas intended for children and families, to deter ongoing illegal activities and to promote the idea of social responsibility among area children.
The Downtown Chico Business Association is co-sponsor of the gathering. Children will first help to cleanup the park (which will already be cleaned to ensure safety). There will be Police Officers, Firefighters and Park Rangers on hand ... as well as the Chico Heat's "Heater" the Dragon.
There will be a FREE lunch of hot dogs and pizza, and dessert will be for sale. Music and games are also part of the fun, which includes a cake walk, face painting and prizes.
The Chico Police K-9 unit will also stage a demonstration.
