Event description
Arcadia Beautiful Commission Community Clean-up Day in dedication to Jim Barrows.

About this event

At the June 15, 2021, City Council meeting, the City Council voted for an annual citywide Community Clean-up Day to take place on the first Saturday in November in dedication of a person in the community who has devoted their time and service to the City. The City Council appointed the Arcadia Beautiful Commission to host this event. The first annual Community Clean-Up Day will take place from 9:00a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at Wilderness Park (2240 Highland Oaks Drive) on Saturday, November 6, 2021. Volunteers interested in serving in this event will assist in removing trash and debris, making paths more walkable, taming brush, and cleaning up tables and benches. All tools and supplies needed for clean-up will be provided. Bring a Team! Ask friends and co-workers from your office, church, school, and clubs to register to volunteer.

Jim Barrows served as Arcadia’s City Clerk from 2004 through 2012. For decades he was a very active volunteer in Arcadia. He attended many Arcadia events and selflessly devoted his time and talents to help others. You could always find Jim Barrows helping out at an elementary school family fun night or a high school music camp. He also assisted in patrolling neighborhoods. There wasn’t anything Jim Barrows would not do to help out. Even when Jim Barrows and his wife moved from the City of Arcadia, he still managed to help in the snack shack at Arcadia High football games and assisted with grad night, the Festival of Bands, Derby Day, and Breeders Cup. To commemorate Jim Barrows, the First Annual Community Clean-up Day is in dedication to his service and devotion to the City.
