The organized cleanup will begin at 9 a.m. on Saturday, March 11, and conclude with a celebration at Althaus Park with awards, music, food and games.
Participants will meet at Althaus Park and split up into groups in order to canvass “Clean-Up Zones” designated by the Sparkle Day organizers. The initial zones will be Taft Highway, Shackleford Ridge Road, Shoal Creek, Lena Givens Park, Rainbow Lake Land Trust and James Boulevard.
“We hope a lot of folks come out and join the fun and festivities, as we help to clean up our mountain byways,” said Councilmember Robert Spalding. “This event was very successful last year in 2016 and we’re hoping that we can build on that success this year. In addition, we’re asking the people of Signal Mountain and Walden to form street teams in their own neighborhoods in order to clean up their general vicinity.”
