This past Saturday, volunteers gathered across the city to clean up the city.

According to Selma-Dallas County Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Sheryl Smedley, around 75 people showed up to help clean up specific parts of the city including the Songs of Selma Park, the flower beds along the corridor located near the Interpretive Center and the foot of the Edmund Pettus Bridge.

It is important to clean up the entire city especially one of the main entrances to our city.

There have been multiple clean up events in the past few months from the chamber to Morgan Academy students cleaning up cemeteries.

There is often a lot of talk about how the city must be cleaned up.

Many people will talk about it, but only a few actually turn talking into action.

We have to continue to take action and start doing what we sometimes just talk about.
