Councilwoman Vicki Aubrey Welch knows when the spring cleanup is over on Saturday, March 26th, there will be some hungry volunteers. That’s why she holds a very special cook out as a way of saying thank you to those who want to help keep District 13 clean.

“A few years ago, I decided we need to say thank you for those who would give up their Saturday to help us out,” says Welch. “I have never been disappointed in the turn out of people in our area who want to make a difference and help their community.”

Welch will hold her Annual Cookout lunch at Lassiter Middle School beginning at 12:00pm when volunteers have finished their work. The school is located at 8200 Candleworth Drive.

Several groups are planning cleanups in District 13. They include:

· The Green Mile

· Holsclaw Hill Road Block Watch Group

· Candlelight Neighborhood Assoc.

· Fairdale Community School

· Fairdale High School / UPS Freight Facility

· Kenwood Heights Christian Church

· Fairdale Florist

“District 13 covers such a large area and many of these groups over the years have done a wonderful job of getting litter and trash out of some of the more scenic and beautiful areas of our district,” says Welch. “We can always count on them to do a great job.”

To learn more about the District 13 Annual Brightside Cleanup or to find a group to volunteer, call Councilwoman Welch’s office at 574-1113.
