SPIRIT OF JEFFERSOI FARMER'S ADVOCATE THURSDAY, APRIL 21, 1966 A--8 66 With next week, April 25 through April 30, having been designated as Clean-up and Fix- up week in Jefferson County, Mrs. O. S. Bloom, president of the Charles Town Senior Woman's Club, who is once again serving as the chairman of the county's "Clean-up and Fix-up" drive, re- ported on plans for coordinating efforts in the program this year. Mrs. Bloom, one of the county's most active and prominent civic Ieaders and an ardent advocate of a clean county and muncipalities in the county, said the campaign will officially open Monda:y. And Mayors Nicholas Carson of Charles Town, Tommy Carson of Ranson, Temple Wheeler of Harp ers Ferry, James Dunn of Bolivar and Clarence Wright of Shep- herdstown, have all proclaimed the dates April 25-30, to be the special time of the year when all kinds of debris will be picked up with no extra cost to the citizens. These municipal officials, along with the Jefferson County Cham- ber of Commerce, the Police Forces of the municipalities and the Jefferson County Sheriff's De partment have all endorsed promised cooperation in the clean up and fix-up program. The program is state-wide and was instituted by Governor Hulett Smith and is being headed by for mer governor W. W. Barron and State Treasurer John H. Kelley. Mrs. Bloom states that due to the size and importance of this project it is necessary to enlis cooperation and participation from all local volunteer groups, no one club or individual can pioneer the program. The Senior Woman's Chib of Charles Town has accepted re- sponsible leadership in efforts to eliminate litter in the community and will continue their work in promoting beautification - Which has been responsible for their club winning the Governor's Beau tification Bowl for West Virginia two consecutive terms. The persuading of all citizens to assume personal responsibility for the appearance of our towns and the countryside is a long: range task for all Community Leaders. The State Police have pledged strict enforcement of all violations of litter-laws, Corporal Holman stated that he would appr: eciate any citizen reporting any type of litter violations that they might see and the report would be followed through. Mrs. Bloom in her appeal to make this a countywide Clean-Up and Beautification Campaign is asking all organizations of the county to create, restore, finish or continue at least one beautificat- ion project for the county and to list it in the newspaper. This will keep our citizens informed on the progress that is being made. Can each one do their part in starting and continuing a litter prevention movement in Jefferson County -- your cooperation and help is need ed.
