FORT MADISON – The Fort Madison Area Chamber of Commerce is coordinating a volunteer community effort designed to remove litter and debris from parks, recreational areas, shorelines and waterways, while inspiring generations of environmental stewards. In past years, Community Clean Up volunteers bagged litter, swept sidewalks, and cleared weeds in an effort to make Fort Madison more presentable to visitors and the general population.
The 2021 clean up date is scheduled for Saturday, April 24, rain or shine, with registration in Central Park starting at 10:00am. Gloves, trash bags, and maps highlighted with targeted clean up areas will be distributed to participants.
“Whether you have 30 minutes or 2 hours available to help, I encourage you to join in this city-wide effort. Come alone or get your friends and family together and meet us in Central Park on April 24th. If you’re unable to join us, try and clean up the area around your home or work. Every effort helps” says Savanna Collier, Fort Madison Area Chamber of Commerce.
This event is made possible with the support of many generous sponsors and participating organizations: Climax Molybdenum, McDonald’s and MidAmerican Energy.
The Fort Madison Area Chamber of Commerce is an affiliate organization of Fort Madison Partners. Fort Madison Partners is the umbrella organization which oversees the Fort Madison Chamber of Commerce, Fort Madison Main Street, Fort Madison Economic Development and Fort Madison SIRRC. It serves to facilitate and coordinate efforts, services and resources of each individual organization as well as share strategic goals, working towards the common goal of making Fort Madison a great place to visit, live and work.
