Corcoran residents find it’s time to get untired

Corcoran residents found that it was easy to get rid of unwanted items on Saturday, May 3, when the city of Corcoran held its annual spring cleanup at Corcoran City Hall. Volunteers, city employees and vendors emptied cars and pickup trucks, and soon junk was out of sight and out of mind. Spring cleanups are coming up in Rogers and Hanover on May 17.

He said he keeps coming back to have fun at the event and pizza afterwards.
