Over the years of the Neighbor 2 Neighbor program's existence, the group has seen great results from people wanting to get involved in helping others keep Rector looking pretty--especially as the city gears up for the biggest party on the planet, the Rector Labor Day Picnic. Along the way, the Neighbor 2 Neighbor volunteer group has tackled many large projects and has met with success in getting areas cleaned up around town.

"The program is beneficial to people who have been ill, or who are disabled and are unable to manage their lawns, folks whose lawn equipment has bitten the dust and they've found it too expensive to get fixed." a spokesman noted. "Or, neighbors who, for whatever reason, have been unable to maintain their home's curb appeal -- these properties are the ones the N2N group will attempt to address this month, and we would appreciate input from the community."

This year's effort is set to kick-off for early birds at 7 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 20, while others are invited to begin work at 8. All those wanting to help are encouraged to meet in the Memorial Park pavilion, next to the community center, in Rector.

A full day of work, with lunch provided, is planned and tasks and teams will be assigned. In an effort to show their appreciation for their efforts, and spirit, teens age 13 and up who work the entire day will receive instructions on how to get a N2N complimentary wristband for the Labor Day picnic rides.

"Please join Neighbor 2 Neighbor on Saturday, Aug. 20, and help make a difference for Rector," the spokesman concluded.
