Once again this year, Lutz volunteers can win prizes and money for their efforts. The cleanup wraps up at noon with hot dogs and soda. Bring gloves and sturdy shoes.

Volunteers for the Lutz Trash Bash will meet at 7 a.m. at the Old Lutz School, 18819 U.S. 41 and Fourth Avenue. Call 949-7481 to let the Lutz Community Council know how many in your party to expect. For group assignments, call Sheriff's Community Resource Deputy Brian Sherman at 264-8950.

Dinner, theater combine for evening of comedy, romance

The New Tampa Players will present Neil Simon's musical They're Playing Our Song and dinner at Tampa Palms Country Club.

The dinner theater production begins at 6 p.m. with an 8 p.m. show time today and Saturday. On Sunday, dinner begins at 5 p.m., with the performance at 7 p.m. Cost is $35 for club members and $45 for nonmembers. For reservations at the Tampa Palms Country Club, call 972-1991.
