Volunteers still are needed to help clean the Friendly City. 

 

Link''d Young Professionals and Keep America Beautiful are teaming up with the Columbus City Council, area businesses and organizations for an all-day clean-up of Columbus and Lowndes County. 

 

The event begins at 9 a.m. March 20 at the Hitching Lot Farmers Market, in downtown Columbus, where team leaders for groups of volunteers will get items for picking up litter, leaves and limbs in neighborhoods throughout Columbus and Lowndes County. 

 

Volunteers also will be painting fire hydrants, curbs and medians in various locations, and spreading mulch in medians along Highway 182; lunch will be provided for all volunteers. 

 

In addition to volunteers, donations of gloves, rakes, shovels, trash bags, flowers, mulch, gravel and water are needed. 

 

To volunteer or donate items, contact Shasta Nance at the Columbus-Lowndes Development Link -- at 662-328-8369 or via e-mail at snance@cldlink.org -- or your local councilman.
