It had rained hard for two straight days making the ground wet and soggy. That still didn’t stop the annual Jackson Parish Clean Up Day from taking place nor a goodly amount of volunteers from showing up.
Residents came to the call of assistance by meeting at one of the four locations at 7:00 am and the dispersing all over the parish to pick up trash and help make make our parish neat and clean.
The effort that was coordinated by the Jackson Parish Police Jury was in conjunction with the State of Louisiana Clean Your Boot Day. A couple of truckloads of refuse was picked up and removed from the roadways.
