Volunteer garbage man Rick Abboud stacks up bags of trash collected on Saturday.

In spite of the best laid plans for the Homer Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center’s annual cleanup day, event coordinator and visitor center manager Maya Rourke said participation was down this year.

The culprit: a Friday night snowfall that brought chilly temperatures and left a layer of slush on the ground Saturday morning.

Those who did participate had a good time, however, with Loopy Lupine handling the recycling, Moore and Moore providing a dumpster for the trash bags that were delivered, the Lions Club serving a barbecue and Big Brothers Big Sisters celebrating its 40th anniversary with cupcakes and a clothing drive.
