BONIFAY – "Taking a little pride back in our town" is the sentiment for the upcoming community day of service on September 15. And more than 100 people have signed up to do so.

In an effort to spruce up the town in time for rodeo weekend the Holmes County Chamber of Commerce and the City of Bonifay's Beautification Committee organized the event. Bonifay Kiwanis Club will be providing lunch for all volunteers. The day will start at 8 a.m. with volunteers gathering at the Bonifay Recreation Center pavilion for registration and instructions. Lunch is set to be served at 1 p.m.

The agenda for the day includes: cleaning up city parks, painting, pressure washing sidewalks, general maintenance, planting flowers and picking up trash.

Anyone interested in volunteering should bring a paint brush, tools, lawn tools, rakes, weed eaters, shears, pressure washers, garbage bags, plants, or bottled water. Officials said volunteers should come prepared to do the job they would like to do.

Two shifts have been set up, one in the morning and the other in the afternoon with lunch being served in between.
