Volunteer Program July Updates

On Friday July 12th the Tam High School Football team under Head Coach Matthew LemMom, came through again for the City of Mill Valley with another amazing volunteer project - the team’s third year in a row. This time the team helped by clearing debris from around the perimeter of the Mill Valley Public Library.

Kristen Clark, Library Operations Manager, made a request with the Department of Public Works to remove the piles of redwood tree debris that had been piling up outside of the office doors in between the offices and the children’s area. Since the debris was so high it was blocking all four emergency exits, making this project a high priority.

“Coach LemMon and his players showed up ready to work at 8:30am and worked for over 2 hours raking, digging out invasive ivy and bagging the debris around the exit doors in the back of the library,” said Ronnie Moore, Volunteer Coordinator. “They work so hard and do such a fantastic job. Thank you again Coach LemMon and players for your efforts.”

A big thanks also goes to the Department of Public Works who came shortly after the work was complete to pick up the more than 20 bags of debris.

On Saturday July 13th the Mill Valley Friends of SLPs group of volunteers worked this month on SLP 323, the flight of stairs that runs directly to the right of the Public Safety Building and Bayfront Community Garden on Hamilton Dr.

This project required the removal of weeds in between the stairs as well as sweeping and bagging the debris and was a perfect project for families of all ages. Thank you Friends!!!

The Mill Valley Friends of SLPs will be working again on September 14th from 9am-12pm. Please contact Ronnie Moore at to find out where they will be working.
