Pastor Grayson and the Gospel Tabernacle Church would like to thank all that came out on last Saturday to help with the “Clean Up Our Community”

Day for Ward 5.

We were able to cut the grass of 15 senior citizens homes on and around Lawrence Street.

We picked up trash from the streets and cut weeds down from the streets. We passed out bottles of water and pamphlets of health tips as well as information about how much God loves each of us.

We want to also say thank you to Councilman Sam Randolph, who went along with us to pick up trash; and to Mayor James Perkins Jr. for coming out to support us.

We gave out free hotdogs and bottled water to all of the helpers. The entire day was a great success.

We want to encourage all citizens of Ward 5 to help us keep our community clean and crime free.
