ASK THE EXPERTS

Community clean-up planned for Oct. 19

POSTED: October 9, 2013 4:00 a.m.

Volunteers are needed to help clean downtown Dawsonville in anticipation of the 46th annual Mountain Moonshine Festival.

Keep Dawson County Beautiful invites the community to meet at 8 a.m. Oct. 19 at Dawson County Middle School for the Great Dawson Clean-up event.

Trash bags and reflective vests will be available to pick up at this time. Clean-up volunteers will be required to sign a liability waiver.

Volunteers are then asked to scour downtown Dawsonville to clear debris from the streets, roadways and public areas.

"Dawsonville is expecting several thousand visitors the weekend of the Moonshine Festival, and we want to make sure the streets in downtown Dawsonville look beautiful for all our guests," said Karen Armstrong, president of the volunteer organization.

The festival, which reportedly brings an estimated 100,000 people to the area each fall, will be held the following weekend, Oct. 26-27.

For more information or to register your clean-up crew, call Kristi Hudson at (706) 344-3501.
