Yes, we’re back for more! But…this year we’re going to throw Mother Nature our own curve.

The 2020 leaf raking will take place over a couple weeks starting Saturday, November 7th and running through Sunday, November 22nd.

Unlike past years, we will not have a centralized sign-up on a single date; the volunteer organizations will coordinate raking their assigned residences when it makes sense during the two-week period.

This approach limits our reliance on good weather for a single date, while also adhering to COVID-19 guidelines to restrict large gatherings. Please note, though, that if there are any safety or health issues related to the event, we will take appropriate steps, including cancellation, if necessary.

So, we won’t need volunteers at the Community Center to help coordinate sign-in.

But, we do need volunteers to help with leaf hauling from the yards (usually about 10 residences) where we cannot rake the leaves to the curb. The twist is that instead of being available on only one day, we’re going to ask you to be flexible and coordinate with the youth organizations as needed to help. We intend to provide the organizations with the names of potential volunteers; the youth organization leaders will reach out to determine truck/trailer availability.

If you have access to a pickup truck or trailer, please consider helping out! If you are able to help, or if you have questions, please contact Jason Husslein (414-852-9634, hussjas@sdmfschools.org) or John Yusko (414-339-2637, jyusko505@twc.com).
