Athens Beautification Day
The SAL chapter at Ohio University joined other students to “Keep Athens Beautiful” by participating in Athens Beautification Day. The day began with a pep rally featuring OU President Dr. Roderick McDavis and Mrs. McDavis, Athens Mayor Paul Wiehl, and Dean of Students Ryan Lombardi. Then groups of students headed off to their projects to work for a few hours.
The members were assigned to work at a local park. They collected trash and pulled weeds from the flower beds. Altogether, the students who volunteered that day cleaned an area of about 5 square miles! Once they were done, the groups returned to campus to enjoy a light lunch provided by local businesses.
