The Town and Country Garden Club would like to thank everyone who helped make our City-Wide Clean-Up Day so successful.
The publicity given by David Howell and the Herald staff helped greatly. We appreciate all the volunteers who showed up at 8 a.m. and worked hard until almost noon. The participants included: Brownie Scouts, Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, WVHS Fellowship of Christian Athletes, WVHS Cheerleaders, WV Lions Club, The Garden Club of Water Valley, the Chamber of Commerce, and some generous citizens who just wanted to be a part of it and help make Water Valley litter free. The businesses, who donated garbage bags and disposable gloves, which we greatly needed, were: Freds, Larson’s Piggly Wiggly, and Home Depot.
We appreciate Jack Gurner and the city workers who donated their time on a Saturday morning. We thank Mayor Hart and the aldermen, not only for allowing us to have the clean-up day, but also for driving their personal trucks to pick up litter collected in their elected wards.
The Garden Club hopes that this Clean-Up Day will help to instill pride in our community which will continue throughout the year. Plans are already being made for next year in hopes of making our Clean-Up Day even bigger and better.
