On Apr. 20, the Classical Conversations homeschoolers participated in the 2015 West Virginia Make It Shine Statewide Cleanup by picking up trash in Lewisburg. Fifteen children ages 2 to 13 and their parents donned orange safety vests and gloves to fill multiple trash bags supplied by the Make it Shine program and the City of Lewisburg. The volunteers cleaned around Carnegie Hall, New River Community and Technical College, Greenbrier County Public Library and the North House Museum.
The WV Make it Shine program is a comprehensive cleanup program sponsored by REAP within the Department of Environmental Protection and the Division of Highways. The cleanup is held each April in West Virginia where groups of volunteers, businesses, community organizations, and local governments tackle specific cleanup projects. The resources available include gloves, bags, hauling and landfill fees.
For more Information about participating in this program, contact Becky White at the City of Lewisburg Public Works Office at 304-645-1833.
