It's almost time to "Clean the Ferndale Up!"
More than 70 people are signed up to participate tomorrow in Clean the Ferndale Up - a community clean-up event that will bring volunteers together to clean, repair and improve public spaces or other areas that have been neglected, vandalized or misused within Ferndale.
Ferndale resident Matthew Nowaczok, a foundation board member who is heading up the event, said the community has embraced the idea.
"I am extremely excited about Saturday," he said. "The response from the community has been overwhelming."
