Seymour’s spring “Roads and Rivers Day” will be held on Saturday, March 15, from 9:00 a.m. until noon. Keep Sevier Beautiful sponsors this twice-a-year event for removing unsightly litter from the area’s roadsides, rivers banks, and public areas. Since Seymour occupies portions of Sevier, Knox, and Blount counties, citizens from all areas of Seymour are urged to participate.

Registration will begin at 9:00 a.m. in the parking lot of Seymour’s First Baptist Church located at 11621 Chapman Highway. Volunteers will receive gloves, safety vests, litter pickers, and water. Long pants and sturdy shoes are encouraged.

Scout packs, 4-H club members, church Sunday School classes and youth groups, adults, families, civic groups—all are encouraged to participate. Children under twelve will be paired with an adult.

The hard winter has left many of Seymour’s road and street sides with much ugly litter. A good turn out on March 15 will help to help to make Seymour an even more desirable place in which to live, work, and play.
