Cleaning up Muskogee has never been so fun.
Action in Muskogee’s Clean and Beautiful committee is hosting the city’s first “Trash Crawl” from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.
The goal is to clean up Muskogee and have fun while doing it.
The event features a scavenger hunt and many prizes.
Committee member and former Mayor Wren Stratton said the idea is to help the city make a better first impression, which will help with tax revenues and have an economic impact.
It’s no secret Muskogee can be viewed as a junky town in some parts. Most of Muskogee is beautiful, and it’s sad that what stands out is the negative. Unfortunately, that’s human nature.
This is a chance to change that image.
Let’s be honest. Cleaning up is not a fun task. It’s a lot easier to complain about how dirty Muskogee is instead of actually doing something about it.
But making it a fun event, with a chance to win prizes? Well, there’s something to get excited about.
This is a unique event, and AIM committee members deserve applause for cleaning up Muskogee and coordinating the event.
We encourage everyone to attend and make this event a success.
