It was a large, community effort.

A volunteer force of 77 strong – from 4-year-old Sophie McManus to those in their 70s – came together to help pick up debris along the Interurban Trail during the fifth annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service litter clean-up on Jan. 21.

Volunteers – individuals, students, scouts and families like the McManuses – participated in the community effort.

Kent Parks, Recreation & Community Services helped coordinate the cleanup..
