Saturday, March 26 is the scheduled day for the Clean-up organized by Brightside. Our meeting place is on 3rd street in the empty lot across from Thorntons at 8 a.m.. The focus of this clean-up is concentrated at the entrance and exit ramps of the Watterson Expressway for 3rd Street and Southern Pkwy.
Be on the lookout for upcoming e-mail notices regarding the clean-up. The commitment to beautification through trash removal is as important as any landscaping project we implement. Come out, pick-up and be gratified with a job well done!
