Keep Newnan Beautiful is encouraging citizens of all ages to demonstrate that they love where they live by joining hands and volunteering for the 2013 Great American Cleanup on March 23. 
As one of approximately 600 Keep America Beautiful community certified affiliates, Keep Newnan Beautiful encourages residents and local organizations to respond to this opportunity for civic engagement and action.
Volunteers for Keep Newnan Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup March 23 will meet behind City Hall on LaGrange Street between 8:30 and 9 that Saturday morning to register and receive a street assignment, supplies and breakfast biscuit with drink.
“We are hoping for a large turnout this year and welcome individuals and/or groups of all ages.
In addition, we are happy to provide community hours for participation in the event to students who need them,” said Keep Newnan Beautiful Director Carol Duffey.
“Service to the community is the ultimate demonstration that you care about where you live.
Participating in the Great American Cleanup can become a foundation for uniting friends, family, and neighbors in activities that don’t just make our community aesthetically pleasing, but also make it more effective at overcoming challenges,” said Duffey.
Contact Duffey at 770-253-8283, email cduffey@cityofnewnan.org, or visit www.keepnewnanbeautiful.org for more information.
