Keep Pickens Beautiful would like to “say thank you” to the two KPB board members that donated their time to make the repairs on the walkway at the Chamber in Lee Newton Park.  A special thanks to Brad Stevens at South Scape for donating the gravel necessary to fill in the walkway.  It was a big job but with helping hands it has been completed.

Stan Barnett

Stanley Barnett born December 4, 1934 passed peacefully on January 13, 2020.  Stan, as he was affectionately known by his family, was a quiet man of service. He was kind, compassionate and wise man, who loved life and loved bringing joy to others.
Stan served his Lord and community here in Jasper for over 20 years.  Stan was a board member with Keep Pickens Beautiful for 20 years, where he served many rolls, gave wise council and was willing to help where needed. We are very grateful to him, he will be missed.
Stan started a branch of Habitat for Humanity to Pickens County.  To make affordable housing for those who otherwise could not afford a home of their own. Stan served there with HFH for over 20 years.
Stan taught Sunday School, had a Bible study group at a local retirement home and volunteered at the Community Thrift store for years.
He was awarded the Citizen of the Year by the Chamber of Commerce in 2011.
Stan will be missed by our whole community for his generous and loving spirit.

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.

If you would like to join KPB and help keep our county clean and beautiful, call our office at 706-253-3600, or visit our web page at, for more information.

KPB is celebrating 30 years of Keeping Pickens Beautiful.
