Community comes together to clean in the Chattahoochee Valley

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Volunteers came to together on Saturday to make the streets of the Fountain City and Phenix City beautiful again.

Their targeted area was the historic district, Uptown and the River Walks in Phenix City and Columbus.

Organizers say its great way to stay active and social all while doing a great thing for the community.

"We're just trying to get people off the couch and out into the community. to be part of their community, to kind of give back rather than complain, and to do something that helps the community," said Mike Phaneuf, the event organizer.

They also say it's not just up to the city to keep things looking great in the community, everyone must do their part.
