On this day, many towns will be working together to clean up the streets and begin thinking about a prosperous summer.  The area schools also participate by taking their students outdoors to help.  All who show up on this day will be offered a free t-shirt.  Some towns also are able to provide lunch - please check with your local organizer.  If you wish to help clean, you can sign up in advance (this helps guarantee a shirt for you) or show up on the day of.  Each town will have their own instructions about where to pick up your shirts, where to find supplies (trash bags, gloves, water, etc.), what to do with the trash after you pick it up, and where to gather for lunch, if it is being provided.
