Here's Kris's description of what Keep Carbondale Beautiful is all about & what kind of committiment is necessary:
I have been Board President of Keep Carbondale Beautiful since 2005, and active prior to that in different capacities. I am reaching out right now because we are seeking new nominees for our volunteer board.
And our mission is basically four-fold: community improvement through litter cleanup and prevention, promotion of recycling for waste reduction, environmental education, and beautification incentives (such as our Bright Spot Award).
The board currently meets monthly, Jan. – Nov., and most meetings run an hour; this year we’ve met 12:00-1:00 on the 4th Wednesday at the Civic Center. Our biggest event is the Spring Clean Up & Recycling Day, the 3rd Saturday of April at Turley Park. We’ve been serving the community since 1987 (initially as “Carbondale Clean & Green”), so next year marks our 25th anniversary and I am hoping to reinvigorate our leadership for this milestone.
It is not a tremendous time commitment, and board members need not live in Carbondale.
