Residents of Kingwood enjoy the well-planned villages and commercial areas, as well as the beautiful greenbelts and parks. However, maintaining that beauty takes effort on the part of everyone.
In an effort to preserve the beauty and livability of Kingwood, in 2004 the Kingwood Chamber of Commerce started the annual Travis McCormick Kleenwood Day. The event was named for Travis McCormick, who was the head of the Kingwood Service Association for many years and was committed to preserving the natural beauty of Kingwood.
Organized by Rick Alspaugh of Alspaugh Ace Hardware, teams of volunteers are spread throughout the Kingwood villages and commercial areas for a wide spread trash clean-up.
The Kingwood Chamber received the Proud Partner Award from the Mayor of Houston as part of the "Keep Houston Beautiful" campaign for it's efforts in Kleenwood 2005.
The 2006 event is scheduled for Saturday, January 28th, from 9 am to noon. Residents interested in volunteering may contact the Kingwood Chamber, or simply go to your village pool at 9 am on Saturday.
Suggested items to bring are:
- Work gloves
- Sturdy shoes
- Garbage Bags
Young and old are encouraged to participate.
After the clean-up, volunteers are invited to enjoy lunch at the Heritage Center at Town Center.
