Scouts in the River Greenway Clean-up
Scout troops in the area will lead the way in the annual greenway clean-up, Saturday, April 23 from 8am to 12pm with lunch provided. Anyone interested in helping clean the river along the greenway and beyond can show up with appropriate attire, boots and gloves. The town will have pickers, gloves, trash bags and snacks. Town employees will run shuttles from the starting point at the corner of Riverbend Shopping Center (Food City) out the greenway and into Leeman Field. Bags and large items will also be picked up along the way. Past years have gleaned several tons of garbage from the river and banks. Town crews have been working hard to eliminate undergrowth that catches litter. Any business or individual who would like to donate $25 or more to help with supplies, snacks, lunch, drinks or donate any of those items will have a sponsorship name on the t-shirt. First 100 volunteers will receive a free t-shirt. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 276-546-1177.
