Northside Garden Club and Main Street Joined Forces – 2019 Great American Clean Up

GAC Gas Station

 

This year’s Great American Cleanup social theme, launched by Keep America Beautiful, was “#cleanYOURblock”. The theme is meant to encourage volunteers and participants from all over Union County to take what they learn from experiencing a Great American Cleanup event and bring those lessons home to organize an event on their own block.

The Garden Club and Main Street groups called on community members, civic organizations, churches, and schools. They gathered at the Union County Heritage Museum at 9am on Saturday, March 23. Amy Livingston, Northside resident, Historic Garden Club member, and 1st Ward Alderwoman said, “We want to make the 2019 Great American Club the biggest and best Cleanup effort in Mississippi …”. Volunteers were given gloves, trash bags, and cleanup assignments at the museum. Following the cleanup, the Historic Northside Garden Club members provided lunch.
