Lions Club Schedules Clean-Up Day in Vicksburg

clean up day 009Rakes, shovels, and trash bags, will be needed to gather the last vestiges of winter when the Vicksburg Lions Club spends Saturday, April 19, cleaning up sites around the village from 9 a.m. to noon.

Lions Club members and any other volunteers will clean-up sites including the Kids Connection facility on W. Prairie Street, Sunset Elementary, South County Community Services, and the community gardens. They will also be raking leaves at local residences.

Recently, the service day has also been coordinated with the Vicksburg Little League’s own spring cleanup at their facilities. This year, volunteers will work at this site as well as Sunset Lake Park, the high school courtyard, and the new community pavilion.

The Lions Club has sponsored these bi-annual service days for several years now in order to refocus its efforts as a local service club. Up to 60 volunteers have joined them in the past years.

Individual volunteers and other community groups are encouraged to join in the effort. Interested parties can get more information and a site assignment by emailing the club’s service coordinator Katie Grossman at
