Stone County celebrates with newly formed beautification program

Stone County Economic Development Partnership members got together at the Wiggins Depot for a certification celebration of the newly established Keep Stone County Beautiful organization.

This new organization is an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful. Its main priority is keeping the county as green and beautiful as possible.

This mission will be accomplished by not only cleaning up trash and graffiti, but also encouraging the community to get involved with the process as well.

Mississippi First Lady Elee Reeves joined the celebration to accept the certification. “We’re super excited to keep building this network across Mississippi. I mean it’s definitely a grassroots effort to keep your city, town, community litter free and it takes all of us and I think the more people we can get on board to do that… I mean that’s what’s going to keep Mississippi truly beautiful.”

Stone County is now one of almost 60 counties in Mississippi with a beautification program with ‘Keep America Beautiful.’
