Adair County Judge Executive Ann Melton has set Saturday, April 12, 2008, as the Spring Pride Cleanup Day in Adair County. And solid waste coordinator A.L. Sinclair has an opportunity for groups to earn up to $50 per mile to clean up roadways in Adair County.
Cleanup Day is designed as much to be a day of fun as as it is for clean-up. There free food, prizes, surprises, and hidden treasure to be found. It's a got elements of a pep rally and, with the evangelistic zeal for protecting the environment taking hold in Adair County, and element of old time revival, as well.
The day will start at 8:00am at the Adair County Annex Basement, 424 Public Square, in Downtown Columbia, with a welcome by Judge Melton and a breakfast of of doughnuts, coffee and juice. At 11:00am, everyone will meet at Mt. Carmel Boat Ramp at 11:00amCT, for a lunch, which is provided.
Volunteers will receive safety vests and trash bags and will sign volunteer time sheets. The latter will help the county qualify for recognition, and possibly extra funds from PRIDE.
Volunteers will be assigned toone of four main targeted roads: Mt. Carmel Road, Bridgewater Road, Old Johnston School House Road, or the Boat Ramp Road, or each volunteer can pick one of these roads on which to work or simply take a road of their own choosing, whether on the list or not.
"This is a great way to give back to the community," Lisa Lee, CJE administrative assistant Lisa Lee said. "It's a way to really show that we take pride in Adair County."
Judge Melton said the theme, "Pride today for a brighter tomorrow," created by Lisa Lee, perfectly fits the occasion.
Businesses are encouraged to take part
Judge Melton is asking businesses to take part in promoting the day. "This is good way for businesses to get good PR for themselves," she said, "while at the same time contributing to Adair County."
Businesses can help by help by donating prizes and by organizing teams to participate. Response has been great. "We've already heard from several businesses and organizations. And right off, we had tremendous help from all the media.
"The phone has been ringing this morning," Lisa Lee said. "We're hearing from busiesses which want to donate to the campaign, from organizations which want to help, and from people wanting to take responsibility for roads."
She said that workers in County Government were among the first to volunteer. "Fiscal Court is taking the lead," Lisa Lee said, "but we have others as well."
The lists, so far, who have inquired or committed include:
The Adair Recycling Center, 62 Service Road, Columbia, KY will take plastic products, used motor oil, batteres, newspapers, magazines, shredded paper, cardboard, basically any paper product, aluminum, metal and tin cans.
