The Covington News - - OPINION -

If in your trav­els around the New­ton Com­mu­nity and the So­cial Cir­cle com­mu­nity and you have been ashamed to see the trash that lit­ters our high­ways and by­ways, next Satur­day is your chance to not only get in­volved but in the process do some­thing pos­i­tive for our com­mu­ni­ties

The Keep Cov­ing­ton Beau­ti­ful com­mit­tee will be cel­e­brat­ing the Great Amer­i­can Cleanup by send­ing vol­un­teers out to pick up trash and other de­bris ac­cu­mu­lated over the win­ter months.

Groups and in­di­vid­u­als are en­cour­aged to par­tic­i­pate by fill­ing out a form at www. kcnb.biz. Reg­is­tra­tion is re­quested by March 18th, and free T-Shirts will be given to the first 750 en­trants.

Last year 50,000 pounds of trash was picked up by vol­un­teers like you.

The kick­off for this com­mu­nity event will be Satur­day March 28th at the Longhorn restau­rant lo­cated on 258 in the city at 9:00 a.m. Bis­cuits will be pro­vided, as well as gloves and trash bags.

In So­cial Cir­cle, the cleanup kick­off will start at on Satur­day the 28th at 8:00 a.m. at the Com­mu­nity Room of the public safety build­ing. Bis­cuits and cof­fee will be pro­vided.

Both of th­ese events will be held rain or shine, so plan to take some time to help us make our com­mu­nity lit­ter free again.

To vol­un­teer in So­cial Cir­cle, go to so­cial­cir­cle­gabht.com/city­wide­cleanup.
