CY supports City of Memphis Green Up Festival
By Shelley Thomas
CY is joining other non-profits, businesses, and community groups for the first ever Memphis Green Up Festival. The city is hosting this festival on Saturday, October 30, from 11am-3pm, on the green at S Front Street adjacent to the Downtown Memphis Farmer’s Market, on the west side of Central Station.
The goal of this initiative is to encourage Memphians to take action to make our city a beautiful, clean, and green place to live, work, and play. The festival, and its associated activities, is one of the ways the city is emphasizing sustainable practices to address issues that affect the quality of life for the people of Memphis.
CY residents can show their support by spreading the word and continuing to participate in our own neighborhood clean up efforts, which are organized quarterly by the CYCA Beautification Committee. Cooper-Young will be recognized for these efforts at the festival on October 30. We would love for as many Cooper-Youngians to be there as possible!
