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 Aug. 2-11 and Sept. 10-17.

“Make Kirksville Shine” events are designed to remind residents 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.).

There will be a special workday from 8-10 a.m. Aug. 6 where everyone is invited to meet at the Kirksville Area Chamber of Commerce parking lot to fan out in that area to pick up trash and pull weeds. Trash bags and gloves will be provided. All are welcomed.

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

Check out the "Make Kirksville Shine" Facebook page for suggested areas that need help or to share projects and ideas. For more information, contact Annette Sweet at 660.216.7891.
