Those wanting to help with the cleanup are asked to meet at the Marie Leist Room of the City Hall to pick up gloves, bags and tools. \u201cWe hope everyone will take this opportunity to clean up their property, as well as come help with the cleaning of the downtown,\u201d commented Mayor David Smith. \u201cWe encourage everyone to bring their brooms and shovels and help make the downtown shine!\u201d\r\n\r\nThe city has held these annual cleanups since May 12, 1913, when Mayor J. M. Miller was requested to make a proclamation declaring a \u201cClean Up\u201d Week within the town. Since then the ladies of the Mutual Improvement Club and the Ronceverte Woman\u2019s Club have helped spearhead this effort every year and now, along with Main Street Ronceverte, come together to ready the community for the spring.\r\n\r\n\u201cWe appreciate all our volunteers who come together each year to help the town get a jump on the cleanup of the gravel and debris from the long winter we have just experienced,\u201d continues Mayor Smith. \u201cThis is a good way to get out in the nice spring weather and make a difference in our community.\u201d\r\n\r\nFor more information about the cleanup, contact the Main Street Office at 304-647-3140.
