For the past five years, Kingwood residents have started off the New Year by making sure that their community lives up to the title of "The Livable Forest." On a crisp Saturday morning, residents from across Kingwood meet at their village parks and scour their neighborhood picking up trash and debris.
That day is called Kleenwood, an effort spearheaded by the Kingwood Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber coordinates the events; however, it takes the participation of Kingwood residents to make the day a success.
On Saturday, January 24th, 2009, the 6th Annual Travis McCormick Kleenwood Day will be held. If you haven't participated before, make this the first time.
How to Participate
Bring your boots, gloves, some trash bags, and your neighbors and meet at your village swimming pool at 9:00 am. A team captain will be there with last minute instructions.
From the Chamber
9:00 A.M. - Meet at your local pool.
Bring your family, friends, or enemies and collect available supplies from a TEAM CAPTAIN.
(You are also welcomed to bring your own supplies.) The Team Captain will have some last minute directions, safety tips, and contact information to report your full trash bags and large ‘haul-off’ items for pick-up. Feel free to share trash Hot Spots you have identified with your team captain.
9:00 A.M. to 12:00 Noon – Clean it like you mean it!
No trash should be safe that day. If it’s in our woods please help locate it, bag it, and send it out of town. (Safety is the only thing that is higher than cleanliness this day. Please be careful throughout the day.) Be courteous of others by including them in all pickup opportunities. We would rather have 63, 000 residents pick up 5 pieces of trash than 5 residents picking up 300,000 pieces of trash. Remember, to some, this Red Letter Day is an educational opportunity.
12:00 Noon to 2:00 P.M. – Meet back at Town Center.
Music, Food, Fun and plenty of pats on the back!
2:00 P.M. – Go Home! (with a smile on your face and take a guilt-free rest.)
