Downtown Fremont Inc. gets help from The Garrison Restaurant for the Community Clean-Up Project

Downtown Fremont Inc. is working with The Garrison Restaurant to clean-up the downtown area to gear up for the busy summer season.  The employees from The Garrison Restaurant started last week by creating three different designs for the 64 planters to bring life to the streets in the historic district.

The clean-up continues this week by tackling the alley ways. They will remove weeds and litter, and paint the alley arch ways. The work will take place around Front Street also by weeding sidewalks around the base of trees and planters plus painting the tree grates.

Through this partnership with The Garrison Restaurant, Downtown Fremont Inc. is grateful for the extra hands to make the downtown area clean for all the upcoming events that are around the corner for summertime fun.

Downtown Fremont Inc. has many free events planned in the upcoming months, so stay tuned and follow us on social media.
