Volunteers needed for annual Clean-Up Carthage beautification event

The 10th Annual Clean-Up Carthage event is set for Saturday, April 14.

Clean-Up Carthage has been rescheduled to Saturday, July 20.

The new date comes after the event had to be postponed twice because of rain. The annual beautification event has groups of community volunteers picking up trash along city and county streets, neighborhoods and highways.

Those wishing to volunteer for Clean-Up Carthage should meet at 9 a.m. at the Esquire Theater, 114 W. Sabine St. in downtown Carthage on July 20.

Teams will be given trash bags, gloves and reflective safety vests to use as they work. Groups can pre-register by calling Main Street Manager Cindy Deloney at (903) 736-2273.

Volunteers will meet back at the Esquire Theater at noon to enjoy a hot dog lunch prepared by the Carthage Fire Department.
