Tulia Citizens Group Leads by Example with Clean-up Campaign

In preparation for Picnic, Tulia and Swisher County’s biggest homecoming event of the year, a citizen group known as Tulia Citizens Working for Tulia volunteered time and effort to mowing vacant lots, hauling off debris, and removing old furniture from properties around the city. The neighborhood cleanup project was organized by the volunteer group with support from the City of Tulia. City Manager Andrew Freeman and Assistant City Manager Jeffrey Yarbrough participated in both phases of the project by volunteering their time cleaning up properties for elderly and disabled citizens. “There is instant beautification,” said Yarbrough, “when completing tasks like mowing overgrown properties or vacant lots.”

The first phase was completed in June, with the second phase on July 12th, both being considered a major success. Several citizens participated in the project and a total of approximately 30 trailer loads of trash, furniture, and debris was collected and hauled away between the two weekends. “People volunteered their time and efforts to beautifying the city and I wanted to do the same,” said Freeman. “It’s something I believe in and am proud to be a part of.”

The efforts of the Tulia Citizens Working for Tulia have made a difference in the attitudes and appearance of the city. Members of the group planted flowers on the downtown square, completed beautification and planting projects at local businesses, and cleaned up vacant lots. “The community has followed their lead by cleaning up their properties and neighborhoods,” Freeman said. “It has created a sense of pride in Tulia. I am proud to work with such an amazing group of people who may be few in number but are passionate about making Tulia better.”

The Tulia Citizens Working for Tulia would like to thank everyone who volunteered and worked throughout the city on clean-up projects to make Tulia a better place. Visit facebook.com/CityofTulia for more pictures!

Picnic will be held July 15th-19th with different events being held each day and a parade scheduled for Saturday morning. Everyone is invited to attend!
