Volunteers invited to Corbin Bypass Cleanup, Oct. 5October 1, 2013 by clackey
Volunteers of all ages are encouraged to join the 9th annual Corbin Bypass Cleanup on Saturday, Oct. 5, from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m.
“We find less trash every year, and it’s a good feeling to know that we’re really making a difference out there,” said Susie Razmus, owner of Tri-County Cineplex, which hosts the event in partnership with PRIDE.
“We can’t slack off now or take for granted that the bypass will stay clean, though,” Razmus added. “The cleanup reminds us that clean roads take work. It’s fun when we work together and then have prizes and the movie party afterward.”
“Greg and I feel blessed with the ability to sponsor the cleanup, and we’re excited for another chance to reinforce what PRIDE teaches our community,” she said.
“This year, we plan to honor the legacy of one of our faithful volunteers, Cathy Hall,” she said. “She always recruited volunteers for the cleanup, and we hope people will keep up that tradition.”
All volunteers will receive a free T-shirt and will be treated to a private movie party — with free movies, Pepsi, popcorn and hotdogs — at the Tri-County Cineplex immediately after the cleanup.
One lucky volunteer will win a free one-year movie pass to Tri-County Cineplex.
Registration opens at 8:30 am at the Tri-County Cineplex, which is located at 1871 Cumberland Falls Highway. Volunteers will be given safety vests, gloves and garbage bags.
Volunteers should wear sturdy shoes and dress appropriately for the weather.
Volunteers under the age of 18 need a waiver form signed by a parent or guardian. These forms can be picked up in advance at the Tri-County Cineplex or can be completed the day of the event.
