||Luncheon honors those who keep city clean
ABERDEEN, Miss. (WTVA) — Keep Monroe County Beautiful honored members of the community for all their hard work at an annual luncheon Wednesday.
About 160 people attended the event.
State representative Chris Brown was in attendance.
He and others such as Aberdeen's mayor, Cecil Belle, gave their thanks for all of the community's hard work.
Organizers said the luncheon is another avenue to raise awareness about county beautification.
"You don't want to live where there's trash all around you," Keep Monroe County Beautiful Chapter President Edna Cos said. "We want business to come in so our children don't have to go out of town to get a job."
Monroe County Sheriff Cecil Cantrell will be honored in Jackson by the organization next week for his efforts in keeping the Monroe County clean.
