After last year’s spring cleanup, Pride, Inc. Executive Director Pat Stewart said the event turned out widely successful.

“It was wonderful - thank God we had beautiful weather,” Stewart said. “It was just really neat ... some of the feedback we’ve gotten from others as far as people driving by and honking and thanking us for what we did.”

Another Alton City-Wide Litter Cleanup will be held this fall on September 9. For more information, call (618) 467-2375 or visit the Pride, Inc. website or Facebook page.
