Ely’s Earth Day Celebration! Come out and celebrate Earth Day as a Community by volunteering at either one or both days of Ely’s Park & Road Side Clean Up weekend event organized by the Ely Public Library and Parks and Recreation!

Day 1: Volunteers are asked to meet at the Library by 8:30am on Saturday April 21st before breaking out into groups to tackle the following tasks: re-mulch the Community Center Park, State Street clean up, City Park clean up, re-mulch and spruce up around the Ely sign and cleaning up the trail as it comes into City Park.

Once again, Odie’s has generously agreed to sponsor the event by providing a delicious meal for all the hardworking volunteers! Stop by the library after your designated area is completed to fill your belly and socialize with other volunteers! 

Menu will include: sloppy joes, coleslaw, baked beans and chips!

Please wear jeans, good tennis shoes and gloves to protect your hands. Stay tuned for more information on the event in the coming weeks! To sign up in advance, RSVP to this event, or contact Callie at 319-936-8056 or Sarah at
