On Saturday, April 26, the City of Tullahoma is coordinating the 1st Rock Creek Spring Clean. Visionaries are needed to help protect this natural resource, have fun, enjoy great food and win cool prizes.
“We are excited that the Distinguished Young Woman (DYW) of Tennessee, Courtney Miller has partnered with us to help promote this fun spring clean,” said event organizer, Chad Marcum. “She will be a great asset to our team.”
The DYW program national competition will be held in Mobile, Alabama, June 26, 27, 28. Miller will represent Tennessee.
Miller will be graduating in May from Tullahoma High School and then will go to Motlow for general studies before transferring to MTSU where she will complete a degree in Business with a minor in Sports Management/Business.
“The Rock Creek Spring Clean is important to me because it gives me the opportunity to give back to my community while also making a positive impact on our local environment,” said Distinguished Young Woman of Tennessee, Courtney Miller.
To join the event, all you need to do is volunteer to remove trash and other debris from the creek. Participants will meet at 8am at the pavilion at Frazier McEwen Park to pick up supplies, receive instructions and join the games.
“I’ve seen the leadership she brings to the young people so having her involved with this project will only increase its success and visibility,” said Tullahoma Community Coordinator, Winston Brooks.
Other organizations helping to coordinate this event include Keep Coffee County Beautiful, Tullahoma Pride Foundation, Inter-Local Solid Waste Association, Parks and Recreation and Tullahoma Public Works.
After the cleanup, they will have a trash tally, prizes and picnic. Lunch will be provided to all who participate, and the Tullahoma Animal Shelter will have adoptable dogs available. Volunteers are encouraged to dress appropriately; bring your sun screen, bug spray, boots and waders if you have them.
Prizes to be given away include: a New Kayak, Google Chrome Casts, Professional Teeth Whitening kit from Glick and Woods Dentistry, Woodard’s Jewelers gift certificate, free car detail from Stan McNabb Automotive, and much more.
This event is great for families, church groups, scouts, school groups and anyone who wants to be a good steward of our environment and clean water.
