On Tuesday, April 4th, City of Staples held a city wide Community Parks cleanup day.  The city asked for groups and companies to volunteer to help with this effort.
This was the first year that Stern Rubber had participated by allowing employees to help with the clean up during their work day.  We had 8 employees that spent several hours helping with this effort.  The group cleaned Wilson Park, as well as the new open area on the southeast corner of Airport Road and Prairie Ave. NE, and also cleaned along the Legacy Trail from the Legacy Gardens down to the overpass.
Helping with the clean up from Stern Rubber was Gene Mattilla, Kevin Smart, John Jewison, Bonnie Gastecki, Danielle Dewey, Jessica Stafford, Brett Dobson, and Sandy Mumm.
The company wanted to thank all of our employees, including those that helped with the cleanup, and those that stayed behind to fill in for those that were gone.
