Quarterly MIC cleanup on Floyd Road

It was a wonderful weekend to be out and about.  MIC had a very successful litter cleanup this weekend as described below:

The Mableton Improvement Coalition conducted their quarterly litter cleanup of their adopted Floyd Road. The Friends Of Mableton and South Cobb Lions Club pitched in to help with the effort. We were able to remove 16 bags of litter from Floyd Road. We also removed 14 bags from Whispering Pines Road, 7 bags of litter from Fontaine Road and 15 bags of litter from Cityview Drive. The weather was wonderful and everyone had a great time.

If you are interested in the adopt-a-mile program, please contact Dawn at keepcobbbeautiful@cobbcounty.org . She will get you road sign ordered and provide you with all of the supplies.
