Community Members Encouraged to “Make Kirksville Shine”

Truman students, faculty and staff, Kirksville residents and business owners are encouraged to “Make Kirksville Shine” during the weeks of April 23-May 6.

The annual event reminds community members to demonstrate their community pride by beautifying and cleaning up their respective properties and surrounding area (e.g. mowing, removing weeds, picking up trash, etc.). Between Truman, ATSU and Kirksville High School  graduation ceremonies, the City of Kirksville will welcome nearly 10,000 visitors during the month of May.

Truman student organizations, Kirksville area organizations and service clubs who are involved in the adopt-a-street programs are being asked to clean up their streets April 23. Bags will be provided in front of city hall from 9 a.m. to noon for the clean up. Service organizations that are not currently part of the adopt-a-street program can sign up by calling city administration at 660.627.1225.

During the 2016 “Make Kirksville Shine” community-wide clean up, Truman faculty and staff are encouraged to pick up trash outside of their buildings, as well as pull any obvious weeds.

Other dates for this event include June 5-12, Aug. 2-11 and Sept. 10-17. For more information, contact Anette Sweet at 660.216.7891.
