Organizations working together for city cleanup

June 3, 2004

Several service and community-minded organizations will be banding together Sunday to literally help clean up the streets of Basehor.

Basehor PRIDE, Gold PRIDE, the Lions Club and at least one 4-H Club will be collaborating June 6 for a citywide cleanup effort. The project, which is scheduled the day after the annual city garage sale, will take place in order to clean and prepare the city for a scheduled June 9 evaluation by PRIDE judges.

"We want everything to look as nice as possible," PRIDE spokesman Chuck Wilderson said. "We are going to cooperate with the city to pick up trash and leaves and make things nice."

September marked the eighth time since 1995 that Basehor PRIDE had reached the Community of Excellence standard that was awarded for community service at the annual PRIDE day celebration. The local PRIDE branch was one of only 15 in the state that received such recognition last year

The groups, as well as anyone else interested in participating in the makeover, will meet at 2 p.m. at city hall.
