Three communities are in the process of joining the Keep Mississippi Beautiful family as affiliates. Yazoo City was certified earlier this month as an official affiliate of KMB and Keep America Beautiful networks.
Sheila Trimm, Keep Yazoo County Beautiful’s executive director, said the group will greatly benefit the city. “Keep Yazoo City Beautiful is a new chapter in the lives of Yazoo Citizens and a wonderful start for our city and county to work together for the beautification of Mississippi,” Trimm said.
Affiliates in Panola County and Canton were pre-certified earlier this month and are in the process of readying for certification. With these three, Mississippi will have 38 communities with certified affiliates.
“As you know, a Keep Mississippi Beautiful affiliate has a tremendous impact in its community by bringing together volunteers to improve public places,” said Sarah Kountouris, KMB Executive Director. “We are excited to bring Yazoo City, Canton and Panola County into our ‘clean and green Mississippi’ family, and we are eager to see their accomplishments in their communities.”
