Trash collected before Earth Day
Placeholder Image
Cold weather may have shrunk the turnout, but it did not chill the resolve of volunteers who met at Riverfront Park yesterday to clean up litter the day before Earth Day.“We just want to raise awareness about recycling and keeping our hometown clean,” said Pam Pescevic, who was among a handful of volunteers who donated their time to clean up trash at Riverfront Park and on the Barren Fork Greenway. “We have a beautiful town and we want to keep it that way for our children.”Cold weather and misting rain Saturday afternoon curtailed the number of volunteers expected for the event. However, some volunteers braved the river to float along its banks looking for trash.
