Volunteers will spend some time walking the New Cut Road Corridor on Saturday, November 7th to remove something not wanted: trash and garbage. When the job is done, they will be rewarded with a cookout by Councilwoman Vicki Aubrey Welch (D-13).
“Every year, we have a wonderful response to the call for making our community a better place to live,” says Welch. “This cookout is one way of saying thank you.”
Volunteers interested in helping cleanup District 13 will meet at Lassiter Middle School beginning at 8:00am on Saturday. Their objective is to clean the New Cut Road Corridor including the Scottsdale and Candlelight Neighborhoods. The Star Rest Neighborhood Association will be working in their neighborhood and along West Manslick Rd.
The cleanup will end at 12:00pm.
“We have very active neighborhood associations in our district and every year they organize very effective efforts to cleanup roadways, creeks and vacant lots of trash,” says Welch. “You will find a wide variety of people, young and old, who will be rolling up their sleeves to pitch in.”
Welch says the Holsclaw Hill Block Watch Group will have a separate cleanup the following Saturday on November 14th.
Lassiter Middle School is located at 6200 Candlelight Drive off of the Outer Loop in Southwest Jefferson County.
