Saturday April 5, 2014 marked another great year for Alpine participating in The Texas Trash Off. When all was finished, we collected over 19 tons of trash from across the City. Ward 4 led the way with 30 truck/trailer loads of trash.
The City of Alpine ended up the winner with great volunteer efforts and participation from our community. Some of the groups participating were: Twin Peaks 4-H, Montessori School, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, Daisy Scouts Troop 28112, Alpine Ambassadors, Chamber of Commerce, Sierra La Rana, Rio Grande Research Center, Kiowa Gallery, Big Bend Telephone, City of Alpine employees and Plaine.
Thanks to everyone for your efforts. Our Keep Alpine Beautiful coordinator Patsy McWilliams was so inspired she wants to host another event this fall.
Erik Zimmer, City Manager
