Maroons in Motion Project Cleans Up Downtown

 

The project was coined the “Maroons in Motion Day” and definitely seemed to live up to its name.

With 5 teams of athletes and volunteer team leaders from the DTP spread amongst downtown parking lots and park areas, as well as under the train tracks/bridge next to City Hall, the “Maroons in Motion” project planted new shrubbery and flowers, removed overgrown or problematic vegetation, and repainted several downtown fire hydrants, trashcans, benches, and parking/caution strips. In addition, the downtown sidewalks were swept, several windows were cleaned, and trash was removed.

Other than the immense help that came from the various MNHHS Maroons athletes, the DTP Committee gave a special thanks to several parties who donated funds or supplies for the Maroons in Motion Day:  Mayor Will Cox and Community Development Officer Daron Jordan of The City of Madisonville for covering the bulk of DTP’s plant cost, providing caution barricades, sidewalk paint, water service and other technical assistance; LawnScapers, whose owner has spent a great deal of his time helping the DTP design and prep Montpellier, secure our plants at wholesale prices, and who will serve as team leader for Montpellier Park project on Saturday; Trover Health Systems Plant Operations for refurbishing the Montpellier benches; W&T Land Improvement for donation of needed topsoil for Montpellier Park; Brumfield Sod Farm for their donation of sod for Montpellier Park;  and True Value Hardware & Porter Paints for providing the paint and labor to paint the trashcans.
