KEEP PICKENS BEAUTIFUL CELEBRATES 30 YEARS OF KEEPING OUR COUNTY BEAUTIFUL

KPB would like to say “thank you” to all those who attended our picnic, at the Chamber.  Without volunteers and members, KPB could not continue to continue the work of keeping our county clean.  Our Adopt A Road Program continues to grow, along with many beautification projects. Recycling, Green Ribbon and Green Thumb also part of our programs continuing to work at keeping our county beautiful.

You can become a part of our many programs by volunteering to help in an area that might interest you, or join our board of directors.  For more information call 706-253-3600 or visit our website at keeppickensbeautiful.org.

Doris Wigington City Park Extension

Keep Pickens Beautiful has been working in the City park extension located off Lumber Company Road. KPB has purchased a Cabana (pictured) and done grounds work around the building. New recycle and trash containers have been put in place for the convenience of those who wish to have a picnic in the park.

The park is located at the trail head of a walking path that is a loop about 2 ½ miles long. It is scenic and very lovely peaceful place, until the local train passes through. Take a picnic lunch and check it out.
