The King City Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture is pleased to announce that the dates for the annual celebration of 2018 BEAUTIFICATION WEEK will be June 23-July 1.   The event is a volunteer effort by the Chamber to improve the appearance of the town. 
During the week and throughout the weekends, each business and resident is being asked to do one thing to improve the appearance of their property.  This could include everything from washing windows to painting fences, pulling weeds and removing gum from sidewalks.
The Chamber will kick off the month with an All-American Hamburger BBQ at San Lorenzo Park on Wednesday, June 13.    Members of the Rotary Club and Chamber of Commerce will hold a joint meeting promoting the benefits of keeping the town looking nice as well as promoting San Lorenzo Park and MCARLM (Monterey County Ag and Rural Life Museum.)
Other events that tie in with Beautification Week include
      --Extra garbage, recycle, and yard waste pick-up for free on regular collection days from June 25-28 courtesy of Waste Management;
