KPB’s 12 Annual River of Life
Keep Polk Beautiful and The Cedartown Junior Service League sponsored KPB’s 12 annual River of Life event on Saturday September 28,2013. Rivers Alive is an annual event initiated by Keep America Beautiful to identify and reclaim polluted water areas in local communities. 165 volunteers along with 40 Junior Service league members identified and cleaned 7 major polluted areas in West Polk County. Two 30 yard collection bins were filled, 110 garbage bags collected, 21 tires removed from the Silver Comet Trail, as assortment of appliances and metal trash, and several areas with graffiti were painted over the trail.
Volunteers realized great satisfaction from their hard work and the difference they made in the cleanliness of our community.
Junior Service League members fed lunch to approximately 200 volunteers donated by local merchants. Bojangle’s provide breakfast biscuits.
