Murphysboro Main Street aims to cleanup Walnut Street

Posted: Updated:

MURPHYSBORO -- A group in Murphysboro needs your help cleaning the town up.

Murphysboro Main Street organizes the "Main Street Cleanup" each year.

They're looking for volunteers to plant trees and flower beds-- along with picking up litter along Walnut Street-- the main street through town.

Jamie Green, president of Murphysboro Main Street, said all the money for the project comes from grants and fundraising efforts.

"We are wanting to just find ways in our town that we could preserve the history we already know we have, but as well as revitalizing some of the areas that we can help out with," Green said.

The group plans to set up by the Administration Building on Walnut Street Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and next weekend. Just look for the white tent if you want to help out.
