The Center For Discovery kids and staff spend their early out last Wednesday cleaning the Prairie Elementary School playgrounds and around the outside edges.  Then they were so excited to be helping keep Cottonwood clean that they then went and walked down King Street then back up Lewiston Street.  The kids had a great time enjoying the weather and being able to participate in the Cottonwood clean up.
