Missouri Valley College students as well as Marshall High School students and others will be helping with the annual “Take Pride in Marshall” litter pick-up effort, set for Saturday, April 14.
Project organizer David Kemm said the event marks its 30th year.
Anyone from the community is invited to help with the clean-up. Kemm said participants will meet at the Marshall city parking lot by 9:30 a.m. on April 14 to register, which will make them eligible fro prizes, and to receive directions for clean-up areas.
Kemm said he is expecting this year’s event to have the largest turn-out ever and appreciates the support for the clean-up effort.
MVC students from the Viking Football team and the Non-Profit Agency Management program, who have participated regularly before, will be joined by high school groups including football players and Science Club members as well as 4-H Club members and Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops and others.
Following the clean-up work, a picnic party will be held in the park where more than $1,000 worth of prizes from Marshall merchants will be given away to the participants, Kemm said. Domino’s Pizza also will be donating some pizzas for the picnic, he said.
