Pulaski Jaycees held their annual clean- up drive to rid "our" fair city-of the unwanted ar- ticles that accumulate in attics, basements, garages, and yards. The drive was preceded by a delicious breakfast provided for the help, by Tom and Marietta Romer. They then hit the streets and picked up all that was on the curb or front lawns. The campaign yielded eight truckloads of refuse which were hauled to the Airport Landfill in Spring- field. The Jaycees wish to thank all residents whose cash donations allowed them to meet the expense of discarding the trash and even show a small profit. Also they wish to thank the city for furnish- ing them a truck, a tractor, and the help of Willard Remmert and John Wieb- king. Thanks, too, to Russell Curtis for provid- ing gas for the trucks. The men worked from daw to dark on this pro. ject aad hoped they ao- complitbed their : "To clean the city of un- sightly litter without ex- treme expense to the citi- zens, and; To show that the Mt. Pulaski Jaycees care about the city in which, and forwhichthey are organized". Thanks again to all those who made this pro- ject work,and to the town and area for their support of the Hanoween candy sales.
