MASON CITY – Village Co-op members turned out this weekend to clean up along the Taft Ave. walking trail between the Plaza West shopping center and 4th St. NW.
A bright, sunny day with spring-time temperatures greeted residents. They enjoyed a good time and gentle exercise after a long winter. Co-op members have agreed to care for the trail all season through the Mason City volunteer program. It runs along Taft Ave. adjacent to the Co-op at 275 N. Taft Ave.
Much more cleanup is expected in Mason City later in April when Earth day is observed.
The Village Cooperative is owned by its resident/members. The 50 various-sized living units located under a single roof create a self-contained neighborhood. Members age 55 and over enjoy independent – some say very independent – living.
Anyone interested in learning more about the Cooperative lifestyle is invited to call the office at 641-423-5840 between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm Monday through Friday.
