Clean Up Walk with Mayor Miguel Pulido
Success! What a great day for Clean Up Main Street! Our efforts garnered the support of over two dozen community members ranging from local business owners, to members of Victory Outreach (Clean Up Main Street shirts included!), and even the Honorable Mayor, Miguel Pulido. Thank you to everyone who attended and made this effort an overwhelming success.
Starting from Cubbon we headed north collecting trash, sweeping the sidewalks, removing debris from the gutter, pulling weeds, you name it. But with the welcome donation of a new broom, some trash bags, and gloves we were all looking forward to taking care of business. While working our way down Main Street we received many thanks from citizens whom we encountered: “It’s nice to see that somebody cares” said one grateful neighbor. One of the volunteers mentioned that “it was cool to see so many people united in pursuit of a common goal.”
Mayor Miguel Pulido was a welcome addition to the team this morning. Even in the damp morning mist and on into the early morning sun Mayor Pulido stood side by side with Victory Outreach members in a cohesive effort to make our city a more inviting place to be. “It was incredibly awesome,” said business owner and Clean Up Main Street co-founder Ken Taylor. “Just something so simple going in at the street level.”
