The 36th annual “Take Pride in Marshall Litter Pick Up” has been scheduled for Saturday, April 8. Volunteers will meet at Marshall City Office (214 N. Lafayette) at 8:30 a.m and the group will divide up and hit different locations.
Gloves, safety vests, and bags will be provided, as well as prizes, food, and fun at the appreciation party that event founder and organizer David Kemm has also set up, scheduled to start around 11:30 a.m..
The event will be on regardless of weather. Mother Nature has only cancelled one event since Kemm spearheaded the first litter day, and he suggests dressing appropriately and wearing heavy shoes.
Anyone can participate, and for any inquiries, call Kemm at 660-831-0676.
