Staff Report

WATER VALLEY – The town is scheduled to get a good spring cleaning Saturday morning, May 2, as The Town and Country Garden Club is sponsoring its second annual city wide clean-up day. The effort gets underway at 8 a.m. in the parking lot behind City Hall for a picture before volunteers are assigned a group.

            Club member Geri Cardwell reported that participation will include clubs and organizations, as well as individuals. Trash bags will be furnished by Fred’s and Larson’s Piggly Wiggly. Home Depot is donating gloves for the event. The City of Water Valley is providing a garbage truck, which will be parked behind City Hall for litter and trash removal.

            Club member, Dee Cox, is urging participants to wear bright colored shirts. She also reminds motorists to be mindful of the cleanup Saturday morning and to drive slowly.

            “Some people have told me that they will clean their street.” Cardwell told the Herald.

            Four public areas have been adopted by various clubs to tackle on Clean-up day. Town and Country Garden Club members will work Railroad, The Garden Club of Water Valley members will work City Park, Water Valley Lions Club members will work Railroad Depot, and Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts will work Crawford Sports Complex.

            For more information, or for scheduling, contact Geri Cardwell, at 473-1381 or 419-4244 or Dee Cox at 473-1097. The project falls under the club’s Conservation Com-mittee, which also includes Bonnie Cox and Sara Champion.

            A rain date has been set for the following Saturday, May 9.
