The leaves are falling and soon it will be time for VINE Faith in Action’s annual community service event, Rake the Town.

On Saturday, November 9, volunteers from VINE will be available to assist aging adults and people with documented physical disabilities with their fall raking.

VINE has been assisting those who need help with their fall raking since 1995.

Last year nearly 200 yards in Mankato, North Mankato, St. Peter and rural Blue Earth and Nicollet Counties were raked by volunteer groups organized through VINE.

This year, several hundred volunteers are needed to help. Rakes and lunch will be provided to volunteers.

Those interested in having their yards raked or volunteering can register online at or call 507-
