IIII F~o~ T.~ ~AYO~ ~ ~ES__~ I By P.L. Gainer, Mayor City of Lewisburg Lewisburg conducts an an- nual spring clean-up campaign and offers free pick-up of trash and debris to keep the City look- ing nice and to get rid of accu- mulated junk and litter. This year the City Council has desig- nated the week of April 17 through May I as "Keep Lewis- burg Beautiful Week." Litter is not only a costly management problem, but it is also offensive and can cause numerous health-related haz- ards. It is extremely important that citizens be educated to the serious condiUons that litter can cause. Lewisburg, therefore, will join federal, state, and local or- ganizations to increase public awareness of the little problem. During the week of April 17 through May I, City crews will pick up trash and debris left at the curb only on your regular trash collection day. Your extra trash will be picked up one time only and only on your regular trash collection day. Your co6rperation in stacking trash neatly will be appreciated -- particularly tree limbs and branches. A pile of branches is time-consuming to load, and I ask you cut them into sections of four to five inches and tie in bundles. Mata Loudermilk and her flanc6.

We think our community is fortunate in ha~nng such a high and professional levei of funeral serwce from them. Their being here, as we ere, provides mem- bers.of the community with choic~ - in serv- ice, in economy, in the many intangibles that are inherent in our competitive free enterprise system, We hope you will consider us (as well as our professional colleagues) capable, and worthy of your trust - should the need for funeral services arise. You will find us quick to respond to your needs and sympathetic to your wishes. We would like to think our fine facilities and me- ticalous attention to the smallest details set us l a~rt from other professionals in ~e commu- n=ty. Our main concern is your peace of mind.
