For nearly 20 years, the Mount Carmel Lions Club has picked up hundreds of bags of litter and trash on the Merriam Mountain Road from Seventh and Hickory streets to Locust Summit. Lion Dave Berezovske coordinates these semi-annual events.

The Lions also thank Nick Mattucci of Mattucci's Cafe for supplying the pizza for Lions workers after the cleanup.

Our clean-ups take place on the fourth Thursday of May and September and begin at 5:15 PM.1
