Franklin Young Professionals awarded for trash pick-up

out bigsweepThe Franklin Young Professionals were recently awarded a plaque for their participation in the N.C. Big Sweep river cleanup this fall.

The N.C. Big Sweep is an annual effort that plans and coordinates the statewide litter pick-up from creeks, rivers, lakes and the coastline to create awareness and to encourage good environmental stewardship of watersheds. This past year, the Franklin’s Big Sweep focused on several waterways, including the Little Tennessee and Cullasaja rivers and Cartoogecheye Creek.

The effort brought out more than 20 volunteers that removed more than a metric ton of trash from the waterways. The Franklin Young Professionals is a group of young professionals that do community outreach, volunteering, and participation in local events.
