The Monticello Economic Development Commission is issuing a one-month challenge to Drew County residents and civic, church and neighborhood groups to help clean up the Drew County and the city of Monticello.
The challenge runs from October 14 through November 18.
Groups are encouraged to post a photo themselves and the collected trash on the MEDC’s Facebook page. The group collecting the most trash will be recognized at the Chamber of Commerce-MEDC Awards Banquet.
Areas in need special attention are all roads leading to Lake Monticello, the sidewalk area between Vera Lloyd Presbyterian Home and Monticello High School, and others.
To register your group and get supplies, call Brian at 367-4410.
