From Fairdale to Auburndale, the volunteers are ready with bags, gloves and determination for this Saturday’s Brightside Cleanup.

Councilwoman Vicki Aubrey Welch (D-13) & Councilman David Yates (D-25) are encouraging everyone in South Louisville to get involved with groups and volunteers who will be out picking up trash and litter to keep the districts clean.

“Every year, our neighborhood associations and community groups take the lead when it comes to the Brightside Cleanup,” says Welch. “We have dedicated groups of volunteers who show community pride with their unselfish willingness to get involved.”

One of the main goals of the fall cleanup is the New Cut Road Corridor. Councilwoman Welch will lead volunteers along New Cut Road from the Outer Loop to the railroad crossing. Councilman Yates’ groups will cover from Southside Dr. to Palatka Rd.

Among the District 13 groups signed up to volunteer are the Fairdale Community School, Kenwood Heights Christian Church, Lassiter Middle School, the Candlelight Neighborhood Association, Tree Line Estates, the Holsclaw Hill Blockwatch program and the District 13 New Cut Road group. District 25 has the Redbud Neighborhood Association and a large group from the Auburndale Neighborhood Association. District 25 is also involved with the Southwest Pride group on Dixie Highway.

Councilwoman Vicki Aubrey Welch (D-13) and Councilman David Yates (D-25) will partner in providing a pizza lunch from Little Caesar’s at the K-Mart Outer Loop for all of the volunteers who help clean the Auburndale/Fairdale area. We want to thank Little Caesar’s for a discount on the pizzas for these volunteers. The lunch will be provided at Lassiter Middle School after the cleanup around noon.

“This is another way that we as Council Members can partner to help make our districts a nicer place to live,” says Yates. “We are fortunate to have so many people who care about their community, and we thank them for volunteering.”

If you would like to learn more to volunteer with the Brightside Cleanup, contact Councilwoman Welch’s office at 574-1113 or Councilman Yates’ office at 574-1125.
