Jefferson Matters: Main Street is sponsoring Clean Up Day in downtown Jefferson on Saturday, May 17, from 9 to 11 a.m.
The downtown cleanup is spearheaded by the Design Committee of Jefferson Matters: Main Street. Committee members will be joined by the Jefferson Kiwanis Club and the Greene County Master Gardeners as they work to get the downtown district spruced up for the summer tourism season.
Master Gardeners will be planting trees, shrubs and flowers in the Sally’s Alley, a project of Tower View Team of Jefferson Matters: Main Street.
Kiwanis Club members will be making improvements to several downtown storefronts as part of the Downtown Building Improvement Program, co-sponsored by Jefferson Matters: Main Street and the City of Jefferson. The program awards grants up to $250 for property owners in the Main Street district to paint, tuck point, replace windows and doors, and remove non-conforming elements of their building.
Volunteers are welcomed to help clean up the downtown area. Helpers are needed to wash windows, sweep sidewalks and entryways, and to help with painting and other general cleanup tasks. To volunteer, contact Jefferson Matters: Main Street at 515-386-3585 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
