The Black Belt and Hicks Hill Community residents adults and youth conducted a successful two-day Community Cleanup Tuesday and Wednesday March 27 – 28.

According to Dorothy Maull and Audrey Moorer, the group started at the Twins Ball Diamond and continued on Mary Jane Jackson Road, extending to just below Nelson’s Store; merged on to Highway 17, including County Road 17 from St. Paul CME Church and completed just below the Hicks Hill Red Birds Ball Diamond.

The group met each day at the Black Belt Community Center for lunch prepared by community volunteers, said Maull and Moorer.

“Thanks to the volunteers and contributing persons and organizations for their time, monetary donations and help with food for lunch, supplies for trash pickup (gloves, poles, trash bags) and trash pickup,” they said. “This shows that when we work together as a community things can be successfully accomplished.”
