The fourth annual Marks Cemetery nature trail and picnic area cleanup will be held at 9 a.m. Saturday, March 23, at the cemetery. A rain-out date is set for March 30, according to a news release.


Participants are asked to bring gas blowers, rakes and yard brooms. Re-New-ing Edinburg is once again sponsoring this event as a part of the Keep America Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup campaign which takes place each spring from March through May and is the nation’s largest community improvement effort.


Cleveland County Judge Gary Spears has designated April as “Make Cleveland County Beautiful Again” month and he has encouraged the justices of the peace to reach out to churches, fire departments and other groups within their district to organize clean-up efforts. Residents are encouraged to pick up trash along the roads around their homes.


Everyone is encouraged to participate in this community activity. Details: Roger McClellan, 870-643-0150 or Patricia McClellan, pcmcclellan13@gmail.com.
