Durant is lucky to be a clean and safe city. Even so, a spring clean is always worthwhile, and that is the aim of the Great American Cleanup which will begin at 9 am until noon at Market Square on Saturday, April 20.

The Great American Cleanup is run in conjunction with Keep Oklahoma Beautiful, which has been so successful in making our state a place that is not only great to live but also a location where people want to vacation.

When you check in at 9 am, you will be given supplies and assigned a cleanup location. After you head to your worksite, the organizers are hoping you will take a photo before you start and another photo after. That way, everyone can see the wonderful job you did, and the sense of satisfaction will be even greater. After that, you can return to Market Square at 11:30 am for lunch and prizes.

It will be a great day of fun, food, fellowship, prizes and remarkable cleanup results. Call the Durant Area Chamber of Commerce for more information.
