Letter: Thanks to the Brown County Community Foundation

To the editor:

Keep Brown County Beautiful Inc. wishes to recognize the Brown County Community Foundation for its generous grant of $4,000. KBCB will utilize these grant funds for litter pick-up in our county. We appreciate the foundation’s support for our litter pick-up project and its confidence in our work.

Our KBCB crew began the work last weekend. Litter continues to be a persistent problem in Brown County with detrimental effects on tourism and property values. However, with major support such as our grant from the foundation, we continue to strive for a litter-free Brown County.

KBCB affiliated with Keep America Beautiful last April and our mission is to increase recycling and end littering in Brown County, and to beautify our environment. If you wish to help with efforts or learn more, please e-mail us at keepbcb@gmail.com; write to us at KBCB Inc., P.O. Box 115, Nashville, IN 47448; or connect with us on Facebook.
