First Annual Refresh The Rims

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

The Billings Parks and Recreation department will hold its first annual Refresh the Rims on Saturday. About 175 people have already signed up. The event is being held in cooperation with MSU-Billings.

Students from the MSU-Billings Service Learning program will lead clean-up teams and perform safety orientation for volunteers. The teams will be sent to pre-assigned locations ranging from the Applebee's to Sky Ranch. Organizers hope the clean-up effort will make the area safer and more attractive.

"It gets pretty bad," say Billings Parks and Recreation Volunteer Coordinator Chris Waite. "There's a lot of broken glass in a lot of areas where people throw beer bottles and things. And then, just general trash along the highway that blows in a collects up there. You know, mostly for us it's just a preservation, so, you know, we like to keep it as nice as we can."

Refresh the Rims will run from 9 AM to noon. Pre-registration is encouraged, but you can simply show up and join a team. To join a specific team, or for more information, call Chris Waite at 657-8308.

    Susanne Rodell faced a difficult situation. Hail storm damage to her roof led to an insurance claim being filed. Rodell picked a local contractor to fix her roof, but mother nature did not cooperate. While the roofing company was in the middle of fixing her roof, a weekend of rain caused water damage to dry wall and ceilings within the house.
