​Twin Butte Community Society​


June 3-10th: Annual Spring Cleanup
This year there will be garbage bins at the Hall from June 3rd-June 10th for community members to take advantage of. The official cleanup day is June 10th, so please consider dropping by to help keep our grounds looking great for summer! We can always use a helping hand weeding the gardens, mowing the lawn, and doing various other minor maintenance tasks.

*Please make sure to put your items in the appropriate bins and please DO NOT put any garbage beside the bins if they are full.
