The city of Smiths Station held a “Smiths Station Service Day” Saturday in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. According to Mayor Bubba Copeland, more than 100 volunteers participated in the city-wide cleanup effort.
The Smiths Station Panther mascot was on site to cheer on the participants and thank them for their hard work.
“Dr. King was and still is such an important part of the America we know and love today, and events like this are just a way for us to commemorate him and his accomplishments which have richly benefited our society. This will also allow us to clean up and beautify the city that we love and call home,” Copeland said.
