From Aberdeen Mayor Patrick McGrady:
On Saturday, April 16, 2016, there were two Aberdeen clean-up events. One was at North Deen Park, and the other at N. Rogers Street, near the Library. The North Deen Cleanup started at 8am and went until 4pm. There were dumpster rentals on site for the cleanup. Work at North Deen Park included picking up a bunch of garbage and getting the park ready for the active season.
The team, including Jared Noe, Mr. and Mrs. Taylorson, Cass Kittle, Debbie Holcomb, the Selcherts, the Kolligs, and a bunch of other folks. Thanks, and I’m sorry for the folks I missed!
At around 9am, a handful of us peeled off to go to the Rogers Street area. We cleaned up the woods and picked up 38 (thirty-eight!!!) bags of garbage and a mattress. Thanks to the McAliskeys, Tandra Ridgley, Councilman Goodin, Brady Goodin, and Ms. Amy Nash for your time and energy on this community clean-up effort.
At Monday night’s Aberdeen City Council meeting, we introduced a plan for the Keep Aberdeen Beautiful campaign. Watch for details about this soon, and please come to the official kickoff announcement this Saturday at Earth Day at Festival Park in Aberdeen from 11am-4pm!
