Cleanup day success thanks to volunteers

Published 12:07 am Wednesday, May 7, 2014

On behalf of the Ironton aLive organization, I would like to thank everyone who came out to support the annual Clean Up Day on Saturday, May 3.

It was so encouraging to see the number of people who believe in Ironton and desire to see it succeed. In addition to the number of adult groups — Ironton In Bloom, New Jerusalem Christian Center, DNA Group, CAO, Rotary — many of our volunteers were from our local school systems, Ironton High, Ironton Middle and St. Joe and St. Lawrence.

I commend the school staff that believe in community service and encouraged our young people to participate.

I would like to thank Mayor Rich Blankenship and his team for the hard work they provided organizing the downtown Ironton cleanup efforts as well as Dan Palmer and his staff at the Solid Waste Management District for their efforts countywide.

Just look around and see the number of great things that are happening in Ironton.

To pull from the city’s current motto: “Looking Up/Moving Forward.”

Ironton has looked up and we are moving forward.
