Seymour – Seymour’s Fall “Roads and Rivers Day” will be held on Saturday, September 26, from 9:00 a. m. until noon. Sevier County’s Keep Sevier Beautiful organization sponsors this twice-a-year effort to remove litter from the area’s roadways, river and stream banks, and public places. 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 Knoxville side front parking lot of Seymour First Baptist Church, 11621 Chapman Highway. Volunteers will receive gloves, safety vests, litter pickers if wanted, and water. The wearing of long pants and sturdy shoes is encouraged. Children under 12 will be paired with an adult.
It’s sad that Seymour’s road and street sides are strewn with large amounts of unsightly litter. A large turnout on Saturday morning, September 26, will help alleviate this and make Seymour an even more attractive place in which to live, work, and visit.
Scout packs, 4-H Club members, church Bible classes and youth groups, civic clubs, families—all are welcomed. For safety, children under age 12 will be paired with an adult.
