This year marks the 30th annual Cowtown Cleanup! Started in 1985 as the Glad® Bag-a-Thon the Cowtown Cleanup is Fort Worth’s longest running cleanup now involving more than 5,000 volunteers. Picking up litter sadly does not prevent it from happening in the first place, but KFWB feels that youth that participate in litter cleanups do not grow up to be litterers. Grab some young people, find a Fort Worth location in need of some TLC, register to cleanup and receive free trash bags, gloves and T-shirts while supplies last. It takes all of us to keep Fort Worth beautiful!  Link to: www.FortWorthTexas.gov/cowtowncleanup

Adam Jonas Horowitz shot his first film in the Marshall Islands in 1986, and was shocked by what he found there in this former American military colony in middle of the Pacific Ocean. Radioactive coconuts, leaking nuclear waste repositories and densely populated slums were all the direct result of 67 Cold War U.S. nuclear bomb tests that vaporized islands and devastated entire populations. Twenty years later, Horowitz returned to these islands to make this award winning shocking political and cultural documentary. Audience discussion follows. Free. Info: JudAnnWat@sbcglobal.net.
