     During this week long event, businesses, residents, and member governments
 sweep, weed, plant, recycle, and paint to improve the physical appearance of
 their properties.  Each year, this event improves the overall appearance of 27

 given gift bags containing items from Eight Mile Road businesses.  The Eight
 Mile Boulevard Association encourages businesses and volunteer groups to

 available for $5.00 each.  Employers are encouraged to outfit their teams with
 the official 2003 Clean Team T-shirt.
     Following the week-long event, the Eight Mile Boulevard Association Clean
 Team Committee will be judging properties for beautification awards.
 Nominations for the awards can be submitted to the Association via e-mail at

 significant improvements, and that regularly maintain their property, making
 Eight Mile Road a visually pleasing place on which to shop, transact business,
 and live.  Judging for the beautification awards will take place on Wednesday,
 July 30.
     The 2003 Clean Team campaign is made possible through the generosity of
