Keeping Kingston a special place to live

On June 25, the Kingston Chamber of Commerce with the Community Beautification Committee sponsored the Kingston Community Cleanup. Twenty volunteers arrived with enthusiasm, gloves, clippers and shovels to help spruce up our community for the summer.

Knowing that we all have our own yards and gardens that need attention, it is heart-warming to see so many citizens volunteer to pick up trash, pull weeds, and tend to the planted areas in town.

Thank you to the Community Beautification Committee members and local citizens who participated.

Thanks to Kevin Bevelhimer, the Adopt-A-Road coordinator with county Public Works, for helping us get on board with their program, which has made disposal of trash and yard waste easy.

Another special thank you to Marcus Croman, who mowed Kola Kole Park. Marcus and his wife Tonya, owners of Cuppa Bella, are ongoing supporters.

Thank you to those business owners on Highway 104 who keep their tree strips weeded and free of trash. It shows pride in your community.

A load of beauty bark was donated by Priscilla and David Boughton and it was spread around the beds at the Community Center, which is always tended by the Garden Club.

It takes individuals to make up a community and we have many individuals to thank for making Kingston, the “Little City by the Sea” a special place for us all to live.

Kristine Libby, coordinator
Kingston Community Cleanup
