Neighbors Gather To Clean Up Community
October 20, 2003
DULUTH, MINNESOTA--"I like to help the city to keep the parks clean."
That's why Barbara Carlson and several dozen other people with disabilities gathered Sunday with bright yellow trash bags at Lester Park.
"Somebody has to do it," Carlson told the Duluth News Tribune.
The second annual event combined the efforts of the Association of Residential Resources in Minnesota, a coalition of 130 providers of residential supports.
"I think the fresh air will do me good," said Jane Trimble, who helped bag trash from the seat of her wheelchair. "It's good exercise."
