Jacobsville Neighborhood is the Next Clean Evansville Location
Mayor Lloyd Winnecke, Third Ward City Councilwoman Stephanie Brinkerhoff- Riley and Clean Evansville volunteers will be picking-up litter around the Jacobsville Neighborhood on Saturday, September 8, from 8 to 10 a.m. The “Clean Teams,” coordinated by Keep Evansville Beautiful, will spread out across an area roughly bounded by the Lloyd Expressway on the south, First Avenue on the west, Morgan Avenue on the north, and Garvin Street on the east.
Mayor Winnecke’s team, which will include members of Cub Scout Pack 351 and Keep Evansville Beautiful litter mascot Evie the dog, will meet at the Bosse Field parking lot. The team led by Councilwoman Brinkerhoff-Riley and Timothy Weir of Accuride will meet at the Indiana Cardinal parking lot at First and Morgan avenues.
Patricia Jackson will lead a team of 20 Vectren volunteers. They will start their route at the Dream Center at Baker and Morgan avenues. Bob Scheller and the Deaconess Health System team will meet at Willard Library. Team six, led by First Lady Carol McClintock, will start at Washington Avenue Church of Christ. Darren Stearns of SMG and his volunteers will meet at the Vectren parking lot on Heidelbach Avenue. The wrap-up ceremony will take place at the Bosse Field parking lot.
The October Clean Evansville event will feature a competition among area high schools. The goal of the contest, coordinated by 14News-WIFE, is to raise awareness of the importance of a clean community. Anyone interested in joining a team or starting a team should call Mike
