Cleanup events:  We received a letter from the Visions Branch Manager regarding the Downtown cleanup day on May 20th. The Visions employees were not pleased with their experience, so the branch manager said they will not volunteer in the future.  Julie wrote a letter in response, thanking them for their participation.
