October 24, 2012 – The Alton Beautification and Clean City Committee (ABCCC) will be holding another work day on November 1, 2012.
Committee members and interested members of the public will gather by the Welcome to Alton sign on North Alby Street at 3:30 P.M. The Committee will then weed the area around the sign. This event will be cancelled in the event of rain.
Interested members of the public may attend and are asked to bring gloves, rakes, cutting tools, and digging tools.
“The Welcome to Alton sign on North Alby is one of the main entry points into Alton,” said ABCCC Chairman Carolyn MacAfee. “ABCCC felt this area could use some attention and that this would be an appropriate project for November. I hope that members of the community can join us on November 1st.”
Created in 2004, ABCCC is a group of citizen volunteers who are appointed by and report to the Mayor and City Council. The goal of the Committee is to enhance the overall visual appearance of the City and the quality of life in Alton. ABCCC is the primary coordinator for the two City-Wide Litter Cleanups. ABCCC usually meets the first Thursday of each month at 3:30 P.M. at Haskell House at 1211 Henry Street, unless a work day is scheduled. These meetings and work days are open to the public.
