Viva Cuba wants to remind Cuba area residents that there is still time to participate in the group’s 36th Annual Cuba Trash Bash, which was scheduled for Saturday but canceled due to the pandemic. Although COVID-19 prevents people from gathering as a group to pick up trash, organizers have asked everyone to pitch-in and pick-up trash as part of a clean-up month in Cuba.
During May, volunteers from organizations, churches, businesses, residents, families, and youth are being encouraged to help bash the trash in Cuba. Contact event coordinator Linda Prevost at 573-205-8347 to get details and request a street or area.
Viva Cuba will provide trash bags at Countryside Market, across from Maces on Highway 19 N. It is strongly suggested participants wear gloves and following social-distancing guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control.
Working together, everyone can make a difference. After all, keeping Cuba clean should not just be a one-day event.
