Can and Bottle Drive @ Burlington Congregational Church.
Please gather up those holiday returnables and drop them off at the Church parking lot from 8:30 am until 12 Noon.
The holiday parties will have come and gone, but one thing that will remain are all those returnables in your garage or shed!!
It may be cold outside, but it's time for our January Can & Bottle Drive on January 7th!!
Barring a blizzard or freezing rain, we'll be collecting your returnables from 8:30 am until 12 noon!
If the weather does turn out to be frightful, check the Church News Page for the reschedule date.
Hopefully, Jack Frost will play nicely so we can do some nice work! Every can and bottle adds up and those
funds go so far as this is one of the few events where there are minimal expenses to offset your donation and
more funds can be directed towards our missions in our community, our state, our country and our world!
