Newkirk Junior Main Street strives to keep their downtown
litter-free throughout the year, but last spring, they decided it was
time for Operation Clean Sweep. In Newkirk, it was a matter of public
pride, and Junior Main Streeters carried the message. They invited
civic groups, a high school group, and elementary classes to join them.
Youngsters paired with city officials and other adults, and from April
8th to April 16th, 123 citizens volunteered, 224 bags of trash were
picked up, and Newkirk got a fresh, clean face. In the process, Newkirk
Junior Main Streeters gained experience in leadership, public speaking,
and organization on a grand scale. For creating a new generation of
environmentalists and for reviving an older generation, NEWKIRK JUNIOR MAIN STREET IS GREAT NEWS FOR OKLAHOMA’S ENVIRONMENT!
