Clark offers thanks to new friends

By Staff
The City of East Brewton has many people we call friends. As a result of the work of several individuals, we now have more people we can call our friends.
On Jan. 23, more than 60 people gathered in East Brewton to help with clean up of debris and damage caused by the flood in December.
Through the coordination of Carl McInnish, the cleanup project was a success and helped our city’s appearance by eliminating the debris.
We would like to offer our thanks to Carl for his willingness to organize such a cleanup project.
We also would like to thank those who participated in the clean up as members of youth groups, organizations or friendly neighbors. Our thanks goes to Brewton First Baptist Church, Brewton Presbyterian, Brewton First Methodist, East Brewton Assembly of God, East Brewton First Baptist, Foshee Liberty Baptist and members of the W.S. Neal Youth Alive group. Your work has not gone unnoticed and we are grateful for your acts of kindness to our city.
Since the cleanup project was completed, we have continued to improve East Brewton through the demolition of a dilapidated building at the foot of the Murder Creek Bridge and have even begun repair work to the parking lot of the East Brewton Civic Center. Through our work and the efforts of those volunteers, East Brewton is looking better and is offering a pleasant welcome into our city.
Again, a simple thank you can never express how appreciative we are for all of the hard work done in our city last month. We are happy to call each of those involved in the cleanup East Brewton’s newest friends.
