February Notes

The 2016 Athens Martin Luther King Jr Day of Service saw hundreds of volunteers lend a hand at 14 sites across Athens-Clarke County, turning a day off into a day on. ACC Stormwater was proud to be a part of this event, leading more than 50 volunteers in cleaning up an abandoned cemetery near Brooklyn Creek that had become a dump site. We want to thank the volunteers for all that they do for our community.
