Join Keep Pearland Beautiful Now!
Anytime is a good time to join a winning team like Keep Pearland Beautiful but now is the best time! Joining KPB by July 10 will allow you to attend a great party and have a chance at some great prizes.
The party, “Cheers for Volunteers,” will be on Friday, July 12, at the Westside Event Center, 2150 Country Place Parkway, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. It will feature food, drink, great door prizes and information about KPB’s dynamic programs. All KPB members and volunteers are invited there is no charge for the event.
The highlight of the evening will be a drawing for three grand prizes for KPB members. There will be special drawing for business members, one for new members and one that includes all paid up Keep Pearland Beautiful members. The prizes are: business members, a Casa Ole gift certificate: new members, a Troybuilt trimmer and leaf blower from Yardman; and all members, a gift certificate from Pearland Lumber/ACE Hardware.
Keep Pearland Beautiful membership is open to everyone in the community. Dues start as low as the “Seedling” level, which is $25 a year. One of the great things about membership in this organization is that you can do as much or as little as you would like. There are membership events several times a year as well as a wide variety of volunteer opportunities from community cleanups to serving on committees, but these activities are not mandatory for members.
Benefits of membership include a regular newsletter and information about environmental issues, along with the good feeling that comes from knowing that you are doing your part to help protect and preserve the environment in Pearland.
Current members can check to see if their membership is up to date by emailing [email protected] or calling the KPB office at 281-652-1659.
