DeKalb needs volunteers for Memorial Drive clean-up

Elected leaders from DeKalb County and local businesses are teaming up to encourage people to help clean-up Memorial Drive.

The corridor has been plagued by litter and illegal signs, and volunteers are needed to help spiff up the road. A clean-up day will begin at 8 a.m. Aug. 27, starting at Georgia Perimeter College at Memorial and North Indian Creek drives.

The effort is organized by county commissioners Sharon Barnes Sutton and Stan Watson, state representatives Karla Drenner and Michele Henson, both Democrats, and the Memorial Drive Merchant Association.

Chik Fil-A will reward volunteers with a free sandwich for turning out.
