Spring Cleaning volunteers keep sidewalks sparkling!

Our downtown sidewalks got some spring cleaning this weekend, as volunteers came out for a St. Patrick’s Day cleanup.  Local business owners, DOCA Board members and downtown fans volunteered to power wash sidewalks along Main Street, cleaning up a winter’s worth of debris and moss.  Our sidewalks are now looking fresher for the first DOCA event of the year, the downtown Open House on April 7th!

Volunteers are at the heart of the work of the Downtown Oregon City Association.  Our volunteers include downtown stakeholders and business owners.  Liberty Adams of All People Massage put her skills from her days as a contractor to work while power washing.  Susan Arterberry of Noel Orthodontics made it a family affair and her daughter Jane got into power washing as well!  Tami Matthews of Scottish American Insurance joined in the fun, as well as Craig Morrow of Oregon City Brewing.  Don and Brian Slack, owners of the Settler’s Corner property, were a huge help in the power washing effort. Megan Christopher, a teacher at CAIS charter school, showed her love of downtown by volunteering, too!  Zach Stokes of ZCS Engineering was crucial in the planning of the event and the behind-the-scenes coordination.  Oregon City’s Home Depot generously donated the use of three power washers for our cleanup.  Thank you to all of our volunteers, and to Home Depot!
