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.
