Friends and neighbors,
For several years, the two of us have discussed, lamented, and sketched plans for a community litter gathering effort. And the other day we finally jumped in the golf cart and began the effort!
We spent three hours down in the gullies, reaching up hills, into trees, and all through the muck. We were armed for the weather and the obstacles, and it was memorable!
We all love our mountain and our community! Many of our wonderful residents gather litter on their walks, but some of it is too far off the road and/or too disgusting to fetch and carry on a walk.
There is no question we can win this battle against trash in our beautiful community! All we need is gumption, gloves, golf carts, garbage bags, and glo-shirts! Additionally, we hope to get permission from the City of Chattanooga to clean up the larger roads, allowing us to have traffic control for safety.
Look for posts on the Lookout Mountain Neighborhood Facebook page in the months to come. Please help out when you hear the battle cry, and join us for planned Lookout for Litter days that will probably take place once a quarter.
