Thirty-eight volunteers braved a cold front coming in on Saturday morning and gathered to clean up City Park. Saturday’s cleanup event was the kickoff for the city’s participation in the national Keep America Beautiful Great American Cleanup that runs through the end of May. Volunteers gathered in the parking lot for coffee, juice and doughnuts, before they received tools to help with the cleanup which included grabbers, trash bags as well as mesh bags to gather up recyclable items like plastic bottles.
