Fling Cleaning







Several crews of intrepid volunteers with pressure washers, leaf-blowers, and trash bags mustered out last weekend to cleanse downtown Oneonta sidewalks and streets for the upcoming June Fling this Saturday, June 6. (Right) Gina Whitten, Allison Pearman, and Anna Frey prepare to swing into action to make a clean sweep of the part of downtown from Cosa Bella, up to the top of tintown (now there’s a restaurant name for you!) at Beautique Salon. That’s a third of downtown in linear feet, an afternoon’s work not to be sneezed at, especially for unpaid volunteers. Show your appreciation, Blount County. Take it out in trade Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the June Fling. (See lineup of events on pg. 5). Here’s a partial list of some others who volunteered in order to make your surroundings pleasant: Jeremy Self, Frank Nette, Derek Pearman, Daniel Clem, Sherry Pierce, Sheila Sorrow, Roy Sorrow, Chuck Morrison, members of the Oneonta Business Association, and members of Revitalizing Oneonta. – Ron Gholson
