A group of about 30 individuals got together last Saturday, to attack a problem which has reared its head, city wide.
Saturday morning, they gathered in Jamestown to clean this section of the city, ridding it of garbage, needles and any other debris found.
This was the first annual Frank community clean-up, organized by the members of the Facebook group, Jamestown Strong.
In speaking with those gathered, many were frustrated that the City isn’t cleaning up garbage in their parks including the sometimes biohazardous materials.
The DeSimon family, who had lived in the area for over 50 years, came down to help out and reminisce about what it used to be like to live there.
They told stories of the various businesses, and homes the family owned near Al’s pub, while they picked up garbage.
At the end of the day, they hauled a pick-up truck full of garbage away to the landfill, leaving Jamestown a cleaner place, if only for a little while.
