Keep Polk Beautiful will host a Silver Comet Cleanup Day on Saturday, March 24th from (:00 am to 11:00 am at the trail depot in Cedartown and Seaborn Jones Park in Rockmart. Volunteers will meet at either location and split into two groups heading in opposite directions. Groups will return around 10:45 for collection of garbage collected. Water, snacks, garbage bags, and gloves will be provided. Volunteers do not have to sign up, just show up at either location. A limited number of t-shirts will be given to volunteers, sponsored by Gammon, Anderson and McFall. Drinks and snacks will be provided by the Cook Farm.
This year’s cleanup is in memory and appreciation to Joe Anderson for his work in bringing the Silver Comet Trail to Polk County. Without Joe’s vision, dedication, and countless hours of work, the Silver Comet Trail that we have today in Polk County may have never been a reality. Joe was the start of the vision to turn an abandoned rail into a molt, used recreation trail that runs through Polk County. Today, the Silver Comet Trail, which changed names to the Chief Ladiga when it crosses the Alabama line, is known and used by people all across the country. Keep Polk Beautiful would like everyone to take a moment and thank Joe for the Silver Comet Trail.
