Devo Junior Does Trash Pick Up

Devo will be out on the town next week doing some trash clean-up. It is something that always needs to be done and its our turn. Isnt it amazing people treat our earth like a trash can. Remember to always pocket your energy food wrappers when on a ride. In Devo, we also teach the kids how to not throw gel packs during a race. Just grab chamois elastic, and tuck in on upper part of thigh. Easy as that!
May 14th:  KINDER: Rec center (trash pick up behind rec center/down to river path)
May 14th:  1ST GRADE: College (meet in big parking lot, but trash pick up at Factory trails)
