Telluride's New Community Coalition Supports Spring Clean-up, 5/20 - 22

IMGP0406 It's Spring, the season of rebirth, renewal and regrowth – and a national ritual: Spring cleaning, a cyclical exercise that goes like this: out with the old, in with the inevitable new, which becomes old and, well, next Spring, if you can bear to part with it, goes out again. Which is why Lita, at the Town of Telluride's public works department, recognized the need for an annual event.
