RiverKings, Fans, And Volunteers Make A Difference In The Mid-South
Members of the Mississippi RiverKings front office staff, along with fans and other volunteers helped make a difference in the Mid-South this weekend, when another litter cleanup was held along U.S. Highway 51, between Church and Starlanding Roads in Southaven.
Over 60 bags of litter were collected during the Saturday morning (May 22nd) effort, commencing around 8:30 that morning and ending close to noon, more than the 45 bags collected in last fall's collection.
The cleanup is part of the RiverKings' six year involvement in the Mississippi Department of Transportation's "Adopt-A-Highway" program, aimed at keeping the Magnolia State's highways free from litter.
Coverage of the spring litter cleanup can be found in a story on the Commercial Appeal-DeSoto edition website.
Another project will happen again this fall. More on the exact date and time will be released when finalized.
Special thanks goes to Leon Martin with Keep Horn Lake Beautiful and the Horn Lake High School Beta Club, along with representation from the Southaven Rotary Club, and others who volunteered their time to assist in the effort.
Season tickets are on sale now for the 19th season of RiverKings' hockey in the Mid-South. For more information, contact the RiverKings today at 662-342-1755 or go online to www.riverkings.com!
