BATON ROUGE - Mayor Kip Holden announced plans Wednesday for a community-wide cleanup effort in East Baton Rouge this coming may.

Holden said the "Serve and Showcase Baton Rouge" effort on May 16 will be part of a campaign to showcase the capital region as a year-round tourist destination.

"Most of all, this event is about taking pride in our city," Mayor Holden says. "Litter pick-up takes work, and it starts with each one of us. I encourage everyone to come out, meet your neighbors and share the job of making Baton Rouge an inviting place for others and ourselves."

The cleanup will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. Organizers will provide trash bags and gloves. Volunteers and groups who want to help out will be asked to meet at staging areas at one of several hotels around East Baton Rouge Parish.

The event is being organized by Keep Baton Rouge Beautiful and the Baton Rouge Lodging Association.
