Thank You for Making Earth Day Spring Cleanup 2023 a Success

Thanks to our friends in the McKownville Improvement Association and the strong turnout of McKownville Fire Department members, our neighborhood cleanup 2023 was a tremendous success!

Despite the lousy weather, were able to clean up hundreds of pounds of garbage from the streets, shoulders and sidewalks of McKownville.
