Those volunteers who assisted in the clean-up include Eugene Williamson, Dianne Williamson, Darrah Muldrow, Shelley Hopkins, Naomi Starks, Tawanna Starks, Brenda Tate, Patrice Fricks, Debra Northcross, Annette Chavers, Shirley C. Johnson, Jimmy Launius, Danny Young who donated donuts for the kickstart, Kirk Mounts and Lorene Pearson. The Clean-up Coordinator gave appreciation certificates to all the volunteers and thanks to all that donated water and foods.
Pearson stated, “Although the annual clean-up is over, we will continue to try to get to areas that we were not able to get to. We had a great time and collected several bags of trash.”
