Members of the local chapters of the American Legion, Disabled American Veterans and the Veterans of Foreign Wars are teaming up as cleanup crews to tackle the streets of Florence. Work crews are forming now to go out and pick up trash and distribute trash containers in preparation for the annual Rhododendron Festival, May 16 through 19.
According to the cleanup team organizer, Jim Swant, who is a member of all three veterans organizations, the crews plan to focus primarily on Old Town and along Highway 101, particularly in the large business parking lots.
Swant is hoping other groups in town, perhaps chamber members, scouts and others, might be interested in joining the work crews.
“It would also be nice if the individual neighborhoods formed cleanup crews,” Swant said.
