On Saturday, October 22 from 9:00 am to noon, volunteers are invited to join the Corridor Curb Committee in cleaning up the main streets of Clifton Forge. The event takes place annually in order to collect litter and debris from the entrance corridors and main streets in the Town.
Please meet at Clifton Forge Town Hall at 9:00 am. Safety vests and orange garbage bags are provided. Volunteers may want to bring garden gloves and trash grabbers if they have them.
The Fall Clean-Up is a cooperative effort between the Town of Clifton Forge and the Corridor Curb Appeal Vision 2025 Committee. Homeowners in the various neighborhoods of the Town of Clifton Forge are also encouraged to clean their yards and streets as well. The last few Community Clean Up events have been very successful in the number of volunteers who spent the morning helping to clean the Town. Boy Scout Troop 2 and Boys Home of Virginia are regular participants.
Specific areas of the Town are targeted in addition to the entrance corridors. The downtown area, the historic CSX Employee Tunnels on Main Street, the parks and trails and church yards are part of a concerted clean-up effort.
Town Manager, Chuck Unroe remarked, “We are so grateful to all the volunteers who participate in our Corridor Curb Appeal/Community Clean-Ups. The day is a way to build community with the added benefit of making our Town look better. We encourage churches, youth groups and families to get involved. In the past, we’ve had a good number of volunteers so we were able to accomplish our task in a couple of hours”.
