Spring cleaning set for post, housing

Spring clean-up is a yearly event scheduled for residents to join together to rid the post and housing areas of litter, leaves and other debris accumulated over the winter. It is also a time to add some spring cheer in the form of free flowers.

Units are responsible to clean their areas, as well as assigned common areas, between May 7 and 10. Housing areas are designated for clean-up on May 11. That day, Garrison Command Sgt. Maj. Chad Pinkston will award a certificate of recognition to the best building in each housing area.

“When you come through the gate and you see something you don’t like,” Pinkston said, “have a role in the solution, and don’t be part of the problem.”

Building coordinators or duplex residents can pick up vouchers for free flowers on a first-come, first-served basis. One voucher per building or per stairwell will be available between 8 a.m. and noon and 12:45 to 3 p.m. from May 2 to 9 in Bldg. 1059. Call Connie Thomas at (0611) 148-548-4412 for more information on vouchers.

Tools for unit clean-up will be available at the Self-Help Troop Store, Bldg. 1557, on Clay Kaserne, while building coordinators can pick up tools for housing from the Hainerberg Self-Help Store in Bldg. 7802 on Mississippi Strasse.
