That Old House @ Blalock property approximately 30 minutes south of downtown Raleigh, address included in registration confirmation.
Aug 25 @ 9:30 am – 11:30 am

The Blalock property in Wake County 30 minutes south of Raleigh is home to beautiful streams, forests, and an old house that would be a great environmental education center! Unfortunately the house was abandoned with many old belongings left inside and has fallen into disrepair. In order to give it new purpose we need your help to clean out the things left behind and make way for new plans! Join us and the Raleigh Midtown Rotary Club on August 25th for a summer cleaning day! Roll up your sleeves to help us remove old books, furniture, magazines and more from the house and give it new life.

This property is not open to the public, the exact address will be included in your registration confirmation email, it is located about 30 minutes south of downtown Raleigh. Please register below so we know how many to expect and can send you further details.

**The house has been vacant for several years, though we will provide masks this task is probably not suitable for those with severe allergies.
